Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Skoda announced that the 2012 Joyster model will soon go into production after it got the go signal from the manufacturer. Badged on a concept unveiled in 2006, the Joyster is expected to be the cheapest model in the lineup.

AutoBild said that vehicle, which will be based on the Volkswagen Up!, will be launched in the first half of 2012 for under EUR 9,000. It's likely to rival the Toyota iQ and Peugeot 107.

The Joyster is designed to work around urban mobility problems and as such, it will have a front engine, front wheel drive setup.

Powertrain details have yet to be confirmed but it is believed that the new entry-level Skoda model will be offered in a choice of two engine variants, namely a 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol and a 1.2 three-cylinder diesel.

When it comes to CO2 emissions, the 2012 Skoda Joyster boasts to emit less than 80g/km for the diesel and less than 100g/km for the petrol.

Last week, VW announced the revival of the Lupo name with a new small car based on the same Up! The new Lupo, which will become the new entry level vehicle in the German carmaker's range, will arrive in the market in spring 2012, together with Skoda's Joyster.
