Skoda will unveil their third SUV at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. It will be the third model after Kodiaq and Karoq. Ahead of official debut, couple of teasers was released that gives us an idea regarding the front. Skoda promises to deliver new headlight styling with separate DRLs at the top and integrated dynamic turn signals. This subcompact SUV is previewed as Skoda Vision X Concept and is based on Volkswagen’s MQB A0 platform. Skoda Vision X Concept combines the advantage of a SUV with agility and handling of a compact car.
By offering these features, it doesn’t compromise on spacious interior and several other safety systems. Skoda even claims that Vision X is SEAT Arona and Volkswagen T-Cross cousin. Skoda Vision X is said to share most of the engine family from Arona and T-Cross. Just like the models, the subcompact SUV will be offered as front-wheel drive only. Skoda Vision X Concept is powered with turbocharged 1.5 liter engine combined with rear-mounted electric motor and a 48V system. It could run on petrol or CNG (Compressed Natural Gas) that makes it an all-wheel drivetrain.
Skoda Vision X Concept will compete against Hyundai Kona, Peugeot 2008, Ford EcoSport, Nissan Juke and others. There is also a slight chance it might be named as Kosmiq. This moniker was spotted last year on dealer document and follows Skoda’s SUV naming scheme that starts with “k” and ends with “q”. For instance, Kamiq, Kodiaq, and Karoq are few such names that follows the same methodology.
