The Skoda Citigo is actually a rebadged version of the Volkswagen Up, which won the 2012 Car Of The Year and the 2013 City Car of the Year awards by What Car? magazine as well as World Car of the Year in 2012. Slightly different front and rear fasciae set the models apart, but they are manufactured in the same factory, and the Citigo has achieved the maximum 5-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Launched in 2011, it remains in production at the time of writing. The lighting technology used in these cars is however more than 15 years old today.
The factory-fitted option was an H4 halogen headlight with an H4 reflector that produces an average light beam even when new. In many cases, its light output has been further compromised as bulb heat and general ageing cause the reflective layer to peel off.
Needless to say, buying new or used original headlights for your Skoda Citigo is not recommended. But there is fortunately no need for that. Whether your car was factory-fitted with H4 halogen headlights, there are upgrade kits that will fit inside your existing headlights.
These complete retrofit kits not only provide you with superior brightness and durability; they are also more affordable than average Skoda Citigo xenon headlights with bulbs and ballasts, and since all components are brand new, they come with a 2-year warranty. Additional benefits over OEM headlights include Canbus-proof designs and effortless halogen-to-xenon conversions. What’s more, the levelling systems will work without any adjustments to the headlight connectors, and you can use any ballasts that you might already own to save further on xenon upgrades.
No matter which retrofit upgrade kit you pick, you will improve the light output considerably, making for safer and more enjoyable driving. And, of course, your Skoda Citigo will look awesome with the luxurious bright light of the latest xenon technology.
