Wednesday, May 13th 2009
Skoda Auto presents the first official picture of the new Skoda Roomster that is going to become the fourth model family. Not only does the Skoda Roomster represent the Skoda brand’s step towards a new market segment, but also a step towards a new development stage.
The Roomster made its first appearance as a design study at the International Motor Show (IAA – Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung) in Frankfurt in 2003. In the light of positive response of the specialist automotive media and many potential customers’ demand, a decision was taken to develop the relevant production car. After less than two and a half years, Skoda is now introducing its new Skoda Roomster to the public in Geneva.
The Roomster car concept is unique with its variable interior and a young, fresh design. As usual, the Skoda Roomster impresses with an excellent value for money, a vast luggage compartment, a lot of storage space, and a flexible Varioflex rear seat facility.
The side lines reflect dynamics while large glass panes underline ample interior spaciousness. The customers can choose their ideal option out of three petrol engines and three diesel engines combined with a manual or automatic gearbox.
The Skoda Roomster will be manufactured in the Kvasiny plant. At first, the car will be put on the most important European markets including the Czech Republic in the summer of 2006.
The new Skoda Roomster will make its first public appearance at the International Motor Show in Geneva on 28th February 2006.
