    Official: Skoda up!grades with five-door Citigo
    1328568300

    On this side of the Atlantic, one Volkswagen division's new product may not have a significant impact on those of another.

    There are places you expect to find a Škoda, and places you don't. European streets, for example, fall squarely into the former category. Dried up lake beds in the United States, however, belong firmly in the latter. But someone forgot to tell that to the people who make the Czech ...
