First Skoda Compact SUV - The VisionS Concept
|   Monday, February 15, 2016
The Volkswagen Tiguan will finally have a brother in the Skoda range. The model will be launched this autumn and will be based on the design concept presented by the VisionS, which will see the light of day in March at the Geneva Motor Show.

How would a Skoda SUV which keeps the current design language of the brand, but grows in size compared to the Yeti version thus providing sufficient space for customers who are moving towards a compact SUV the size of a Volkswagen Tiguan, for example, look like? That is one question that was on everyone's lips, especially Skoda fans, for several years, during which the priorities and strategy of the Volkswagen Group have left the Czechs with a range in a B segment crossover appeared, the Yeti.


But 2016 is the year of awakening for the Volkswagen Group's brands from this point of view. In the Volkswagen range we will see a new Tiguan generation, Seat will get the new Aran, the first SUV in the history of the Iberian brand, and at Skoda will get to see in the fall a model that will take the skills and items from the Tiguan and Aran reconfigured in a Skoda aesthetic format.

Skoda unveiled its new design language in 2014, presenting the VisionC study. Now the brand has transferred this language in the SUV segment. The VisionS (S stands for SUV) shows how the future SUV brand could look like – it will be bigger than the successful Skoda Yeti model: with a length of 4.70 meters and width of 1.91 meters, and a height 1.68 meters, it is a strong presence on the roads. The classic interior also been recreated, the one that made the brand so popular: Skoda VisionS has three rows of seats, giving generous space for six passengers.

The exterior design of the Skoda VisionS concept reflects the new emotional brand approach: all edges and lines are clear, precise and sharp and crystalline design elements accentuate the exterior. Interference between light and shadow creates forceful effects on striking the refined surfaces at the same time.
The engine hood benefits from the creative use of plastic materials, the contours flowing towards the brand logo. The wide radiator grille and conical four LED headlights with high position define the front of the car, emphasizing the car's SUV character. The emblem and vertical grille slats are marked by crystalline elements – this being the Skoda tribute to the Czech art of crystal processing.

From a design standpoint, the VisionS finds a sort of reinterpretation of the Skoda Octavia something that is normal and logical: if the Tiguan is the Golf representative, the future SUV Skoda - whose official name will apparently be Kodiak - is the SUV version of the Octavia.

But we do note the disappearance of a symbol of Czech brand: the taillights, shaped like the letter C, are missing. We will see in the future if this new direction focuses exclusively on the SUV area, or if Skoda's complete rejection of this feature will carry onto future generations of the sedan and hatchback.
