let’s face it, the segment brings dominated for years by the Fiat 500 and Panda. Are the favorite models of the public and thanks to its many qualities have earned their reputation. However, the big brands want to have a presence in this segment of the market and as it is logical to try to banish the Italian firm of its convenient location.
Volkswagen Group is one of the last who has tried it. For such a feat developed the Volkswagen Up!, Seat Mii and Skoda Citigo. Of these triplets, the first two have been defended fairly well in the sales charts, but the model of the house Czech with the passage of time has been losing bellows. It is not that his brothers sold much more, but for whatever reason they are eclipsing.
in this situation, and the difficult time that is going through the German consortium, Skoda would be coming up with a solution for the small Citigo. As has declared to several media Peter Solc, head of international sales of Skoda, the brand will focus on the models most in demand are. According to these words, there is to be a brilliant to understand that the signature Czech will focus on strengthening its position in the SUV segment and will be forgetting the Citigo.
therefore, and due to the demand more and more low has the Citigo, Skoda will not have a substitute in the range for this model. To supplement their lack, bolster their range in the upper segments and even released to the market a new model in the signature. It will not be other than a pick up as is logical, will be based at the technical level in the Volkswagen Amarok.
in Addition, another of the points that have been working at Skoda to keep growing it’s the number of markets in which they are present. According to Solc, must still improve its ranking in Latin America, or even get invested in the united States.
