Škoda Joyster Rendered, Launch In Early 2012

Volkswagen will launch their new city car called either Lupo or Up! later this year. Skoda is also getting their version of this small city car, that will be called the Joyster.

The Joyster will be almost identical to the Up!/Lupo, with some styling changes to fit with the rest of Skoda range, including different bumpers, grille, and headlights.

Skoda’s version is expected to use the same engines as its German cousin, including 1.0 litre 3 cylinder petrol engine and a 1.2 litre Bluemotion diesel both producing 74 bhp. A 1.2 litre TSI with 84 bhp will be offered as well.

All-electric version is also expected to follow in 2013 with a 60 kW electric motor. The Joyster will be built in Bratislava, Slovakia with prices expected to start from around £7,700.

Above is a purely speculative rendering on how the Joyster could potentially look like when it arrives in early 2012.

    if the skoda joyster and Vw up! city car are to take on the aygo/c1/107 then they should start at below £6,499 as a new c1 is £6499.
    Wake up vw and price the cars properly, and make sure they are reliable this time!!

    Don’t forget the 3rd variation – the new SEAT Arosa. Hope VW releases the SEAT and Skoda around the same time as the UP!

    Turns out that the eventual car from Skoda is a bit more sober and mature to look at, but better specced… http://www.skoda-auto.com/COM/about/info/news/news/Pages/2011_106_citigo.aspx

  • The starting cost of this car is estimated to be EUR 19,000
    which is quite affordable, I would say. A powerful version of this car,
    dubbed VRS might be introduced as well, somewhere in 2012. Along With Joyster, Skoda might also be presenting the Fabia
    Monte Carlo special edition in Geneva Auto Show, but it isn’t yet
    confirmed.
