Skoda's existing model range is to get even more exciting with the addition of a unique and totally original fourth model. The Skoda Roomster will go on sale in the UK this September. Bringing the Roomster concept car, shown at the IAA in Frankfurt three years ago represented a special challenge for Skoda Auto. Even at the concept stage, the form and proportions of the Roomster met with widespread approval. One of the main reasons for this was the strong exterior design - the Roomster conveys its inner values outwards and, in doing so, also displays its identity for all to see.

The Skoda Roomster today is a modern expansion of the model range offered by Skoda Auto. In the recent past, the brand has become known for cars of a more classical design, which, in addition to the high level of technology, exceptional reliability and quality, also exhibit an excellent price -performance ratio. The Skoda Roomster fits these values, too. The Roomster follows the lines of a compact MPV but differs from its competitors in this segment thanks to its unconventional design. Despite measuring just 4,205 millimetres in length, by means of its movable rear seats, the Roomster provides a variable boot volume of between 450 and 530 litres, which is among the largest in the class.
