First Sketch Up Date: Skoda VisionC Concept

Skoda’s recent sales success has largely been founded on sensible virtues but things could be about to get sporty, if the new Skoda VisionC concept is anything to go by.

The Skoda VisionC concept previews a new five-door hatchback coupe that’s due to enter the Skoda line-up by 2016 to rival the Mercedes CLA. We’ll get to see the VisionC in all its glory at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next week but in the meantime these official images give a great indication of the car’s sharply sculpted lines.

Destined to slot into the Skoda range between the popular Octavia and Superb models, the VisionC is based on the Volkswagen Group’s increasingly ubiquitous MQB platform, which also underpins the Octavia as well as the Volkswagen Golf and SEAT Leon.

Among the stand out design features of the VisionC exterior is the razor-sharp swage line connecting the triangular-themed light clusters at the nose and tail. The long, flowing roofline of the car ends at the pinched rear that echoes the looks of recent Audi’s four-door coupes - the A7 and A5 Sportback.
The VisionC is powered by an advanced 1.4-litre direct-injection petrol engine that can also run on natural gas. Computer data on this cutting-edge new unit indicates that combined cycle fuel economy equivalent to 72mpg would be possible while in natural gas mode. CO2 emissions would be in the region of 91g/km.

The eventual production version of the new Skoda will be powered by a more traditional engine range of petrol and diesel units with capacities between 1.4 and 2.0 litres. But the car will get an all-wheel-drive transmission fitted as standard. A vRS version with 2.0-litre turbo power and around 280hp would provide the new flagship model in the Skoda range.
