The Czech car maker, Skoda unveiled the partially disguised production version of the Skoda VisionS concept at an event in Prague, that was showcased at the Geneva Motor Show 2016. The SUV has been codenamed as “A-Plus” and reportedly will get a Kodiak moniker. And we bring you a rendering of the second generation Skoda Yeti designed by Bernard Car Design.
Based on the Volkswagen’s MQB platform, the new Skoda Yeti could borrow some of the engine specs from the Volkswagen Tiguan, and it will be positioned in the same segment as that of the Tiguan, which is comes under a C-segment Compact SUV in Europe. While the Skoda Kodiaq will most likely be similar to the stretched Tiguan i.e. the XL version, which is a three-row version of the Volkswagen Tiguan.
As the engine details are not out yet, but it could be offered in both petrol and diesel engines, where the petrol unit is expected to be 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder unit and the diesel motor could be carried forward from its predecessor with some tweaks. Transmission options could be a 1.0-litre turbocharged three-cylinder unit. It will be available four-wheel drive system. Though, the company is planning to add a hybrid powertrain in its entire line-up.
