Citizen with straight frame?

This bike is up for sale in my area. Seller identifies it as a Citizen but doesn't say which model. I can't find a Citizen with a straight frame; this looks more like a Dahon.
Trying to figure out if it's worth the drive to go see it.

Never a fan of Citizen bikes although love their website design. That looks like your generic low end chinese folding bike. The hinge type looks like the type more common on steel frames, the wheels single wall rims, Shimano's worst ever derailleur. I wouldn't pay a lot for it, it is pretty much in the same quality ballpark as the $100 amazon folding bikes if anything slightly worse. It looks worse for wear and surely not worth anymore than about $20-30.

I passed on it. After looking at the pic more carefully, I had the same thought that it was steel; seller confirmed that it was heavy.
