Skoda, the Mladá Boleslav-based automaker, has confirmed that the new 7-seater SUV - based on the VisionS Concept - would make its global debut at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show. Just so you know, the company unveiled their new design language in 2014 with the VisionC design study. The VisionS (‘S’ stands for SUV) shows how the brand’s future SUV, which will be larger than the successful ŠKODA Yeti, could look.
The new SUV would measure 4.70 meters in length, 1.91 meters in width, and 1.68 meter in height. As for exterior styling, all the edges and lines would be clear, precise and sharp. There would be a wider front grille and four tapered, high-set LED headlights, which characterize the face of the show car, emphasizing the vehicle’s SUV character. The logo and the vertical struts in the grill are characterized by crystalline elements. The side view also illustrates the strong SUV character of ŠKODA’s VisionS. The wheel arches are angular, emphasizing the off-road character. The upper-shoulder contour forms a deep groove over the sills.
The rear of ŠKODA’s VisionS has been sculpturally designed. A strong diffuser insert borders the large exhaust pipes, giving the large SUV a visually powerful stance on the road. The ŠKODA logo and shallow rear lights with dynamically cut crystalline housings sit just beneath the low rear window. The C-graphic – characteristic of ŠKODA, beginning at the rear lights –runs into the flat reflectors in the bumper. For those asking, it would have three row seating configuration, while accommodating seven occupants comfortably.
