Czechs officially announced that the Mission L (under the same name concept debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show) fits into the gap between the small Fabia and solid Octavia A5.
Organised our “family” photo shooting immediately questioned the forthcoming hoax: a novice in length simply can not be the golden mean, then it would be Golf’a format.
The size and the silhouette of the hatchback is more inclined to the Octavia, which at its 4.57 m only seven centimeters longer than his.
2018-2019 Skoda started a designer and began to attack her unconventionally – a budget model.
For example 2018-2019 Skoda Mission L looks as if Octavia smoothed wrinkles on the skin: it has clearly defined grille, flat lights, branded emblem stands on a metal base, sidewalls lost swollen impact protection – here they are equal, as the shooter on his trousers.
It seems that the Mission L – is the Octavia, a dip in the fountain of youth.
So it should be, since its design strategy guided the Czechs to the survey, during which they found that customers miss it for the size of the first Octavia.
Indirect evidence can serve as a fact that the first model for six years was produced in parallel with the successor version of Tour and yet popular.
We transplanted from the current Octavia A5 in Mission L.
Surprisingly, both cars seem very spacious – and shoulder width apart, and behind the knees where to enjoy the comfort and freedom.
And it is no coincidence, because the 2018-2019 Skoda Rapid structurally almost identical to the forthcoming three-volume Seat’u that should grab a taxi in Spain the local market.
In the trunk 2018-2019 Skoda necessarily fit all the family stuff, no matter how big it might be – well, maybe one bag less than the Octavia.
Another surprise move by 2018-2019 Skoda: preparing for the future Rapid’a very modest price tag, as evidenced by simple hinges rear seats extending back cover lock and a simple regulator Ratchet for front seat backrests.
With this pragmatic approach Mission L manufacturer is no longer perceived as an impossible dream, but as a production car, which in March 2012 in Geneva, will demonstrate a new quality of “recyclable” parts in the VW concern.
As part of the chassis 2018-2019 Skoda Rapid will get a lot from the Polo and the Golf VI – on the same principle of creating a cheap Renault Dacia.
Reduce costs by borrowing units are quite possible and under the hood.
The new petrol turbo help save fuel on all the VW brands.
TSI units are replacing aspirated with a large working volume.
Letter T is turbocharged, SI – gasoline direct injection.
Both techniques are designed to reduce power consumption when the same.
For example, 1.2 TSI 105 to replace the same force for 1.6-liter capacity.
But the biggest surprise is the price: if 2018-2019 Skoda to readjust claimed for Europe € 13 500, and only the bare bait will not hide behind them, then Rapid simply doomed to success.
Including and at home, because who then tempted to Octavia?
Therefore, it is the next generation will grow slightly in 2013, to keep the distance within the brand. Very attractive packages of 2018-2019 Skoda familiar technique.
If the new 2018-2019 Skoda Rapid in fact will cost between € 13 500 will make it to worry not only Koreans.
Then Octavia may become superfluous, as well as the VW the Jetta .
Some buyers will think, so whether they need expensive Golf.
