More details about Skoda’s Logan fighter

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Skoda has revealed new details about a low-cost family sedan set to rival the Logan, which is produced by Renault's Dacia subsidiary. In the union's weekly newsletter, Skoda union chief Jaroslav Povsik sid that a mock-up of the new car, which is dubbed A Entry, has been presented.

The Mlada Fronta Dnes Czech daily newspaper said that the model could have a price tag of about 260,000 crowns ($13,650), which places it at a notch somewhere between Skoda's Fabia subcompact and the Octavia sedan.

The newspaper thinks that the car would be targeting lower-income customers looking for a larger family car.

The date for the production launch of the new model was not reported. During last November's conference organized by Automobilwoche, a German language sister publication of Automotive News Europe, Skoda CEO Reinhard Jung disclosed that the car would launch in two to three years. He also said that Skoda, the Czech unit of Volkswagen AG, aims to strengthen its product lineup.

To do that, it plans to increase the rising sales of low-cost cars. While Skoda is moving its car more upscale in the past few years, Jung said that it also aims to produce attractive new cars for entry-level buyers.

Components from the Fabia and Octavia will be used by Skoda's Logan fighter. Priced at about 7,300 euros in Germany, this model is said to be more expensive and upscale then the Logan.
