Rob Tracey, Skoda UK director, believes the 21-derivative Octavia range is back in the value-for-money sector following a 13% price reduction. The 1.4 Classic saloon costs £9,800.
Skoda dropped its three-year servicing package to achieve the new pricing points but retained the three years unlimited mileage warranty.
Rob Tracey, Skoda director, predicted 40,000 annual Skoda sales in the UK by 2004. This year was on target for 30,000 sales.
Mr Tracey said the Fabia estate, due in March, was “a star car” and 7,000 were allocated next year.
