As the chief of the Skoda style of Skoda Joseph Kaban announced, future models of the Czech brand will differ in a more emotional design, but retain their individual character.
The beginning of the new stylistic direction of Skoda was the conceptual model of Vision D, shown in early March in Geneva. An element that will almost be gradually applied to the whole gamut of Skoda, there is a new type of facing lattice and the placement of an updated logo.
The first model produced in the new line of the stylistic brand will be the city Youngster, which will appear in the other half of the year – its analogue in the VW gamut will be called UP (lupo?).
A year later, Skoda will demonstrate a new model, which, according to one sources, should be called Felicia, and according to others – Popular. It will be a small sedan based on Fabi, and its main rival in the market will be Dacia Logan.
The novelty of Skoda will appear in 2013 – after the nine -year career of Octavia of the second generation, will give way to its namesake of a completely new structure. The car will arise on the new MQB modular platform VW, which will serve as a production of cars such as golf VII or new Audi A3.
The new Octavia will be largely based on Vision D style. Also, Octavia III will have a body of the hatchback type, also one of the priority will be a combi body.
