Among the most dramatic of the new cars will be executive-class Seats and Skodas, and V12 Volkswagens to rival Mercedes-Benz in the luxury sector. Speaking at the Geneva Motor Show, a senior company spokesman said there was no reason why each of the four brands (Volkswagen, Audi, Seat and Skoda) should not be present in every major sector of the market.
Aside from a new coupe and minicar from Volkswagen, an eight-cylinder Passat is expected soon. This will be followed by a V12 limousine, which Volkswagen will base on the Audi A8 structure. Among the many other products, a new upper medium Seat is due later this year.
