For the first time ever, ŠKODA offers a
compact car which combines ŠKODA’s good practical qualities with the
hatchback shape. With its dynamically fresh design, the ŠKODA Rapid
Spaceback is set to address younger
customer segments. Rapid
Spaceback offers the largest legroom (64 millimeters) and the largest
headroom (980 millimeters) in its segment. Likewise, the trunk volumes
are among the
best figures in the segment, measuring 415 liters or 1,381 liters when
the rear bench is folded down.
With its clean, elegant design, this ŠKODA compact SUV is just perfect for city driving, which is underscored by surefooted on-road handling and excellent variability of the interior with a VarioFlex rear seat system. The wide range of available engines, transmissions and optional equipment also enables a Yeti to be “custom tailored”.
Rugged styling features make it clear that Yeti Outdoor feels most at home outside the paved roads. And hand in hand with the adventurous looks comes also the Haldex 5 four-wheel drive. The wide range of available engines, transmissions and optional equipment also enables a Yeti to be “custom tailored”.
Buying a new car is nearly always a compromise between form and
function, style and practicality, quality and cost. The all-new ŠKODA Superb
Combi is an exception to this rule. With a 660-litre boot, the stylish estate
version of our flagship model has the largest boot in the entire class. 31
additional ‘Simply Clever’ features have been specifically designed to
make your life easier. The array of assistance systems available will not only
make travelling safer, but also give you the comfort you and your passengers
would expect from a world-class vehicle. Superior handling, performance and efficiency,
coupled with the latest technological advances ensure that buying a new car is
no longer about making compromises.
“Škoda’s model offensive is continuing in 2012,” said Škoda CEO Winfried Vahland at the Citigo’s presentation on the eve of the Geneva auto salon. “The Citigo will provide sustained strength to our favourable position in Europe and win new customer groups for our brand. Our new subcompact is a real ‘simply clever’ car: ingenious, roomy, agile and leading in technology. This makes is a young and ‘fresh’ offering of ours in a strongly growing segment,” Vahland continued. At home in the Czech Republic, the three-door version was successfully introduced into the market in late 2011 – promptly being named best subcompact as part of the ‘2012 Car of the Year’ contest. Powered by the Citigo and other new models, Škoda intends to achieve significant additional growth in international markets in the years to come. Its aim is to increase global sales to at least 1.5 million by 2018. “We are on a stable growth path and have clearly raised our deliveries yet again in the first two months of 2012,” Vahland confirms. In the January-February 2012 period, worldwide sales of the brand rose 11,6 percent to 147.505 units year on year, a “perfect start to the year” according to Vahland and a seamless continuation of Škoda’s successful year 2011, in which the brand scored another delivery record in its currently 117-year corporate history at 879,200 units. The Citigo is among the most compact yet roomiest representatives of the subcompact class. Especially noteworthy is its precise, authentic and attractive design, which endows it with a distinctive character. It is the first Škoda model to bear the brand’s new logo and impresses with its clear proportions, lines and surfaces. Among its ingenious features in keeping with the brand’s ‘Simply Clever’ slogan are the photo and document holder, the glove compartment’s integrated bag hook or the range of nets to hold loose objects. The Citigo is big on safety. Its exemplary safety concept won it the maximum score of five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test, together with the VW up! and the SEAT Mii. New three-cylinder petrol engines with a displacement of one litre and two power variants (44 kW/60 PS and 55 kW/75 PS) make the new car nimble and efficient. Its most fuel-thrifty Green tec variant consumes a mere 4,1 l/100 km. The Green tec version’s CO2-emissions are only 96 g/km.
