ŠKODA has unveiled its ‘Vision S’ concept SUV at the Geneva Motor Show. It’s an almost production-ready preview of the seven-seater Kodiaq SUV that’s due in showrooms early next year.
The name of the long-anticipated large SUV was revealed when ŠKODA officially registered it as a trademark earlier this year, although it hasn’t been used for the show concept. Still, the Vision S is expected to translate with minimal changes into production.
The concept is 4.7 metres long, gets three rows of two seats (instead of the production car’s expected seven-seat layout) and gives a clear idea of how ŠKODA’s line-up of new SUVs could look as it’s rolled out over the next four years. The process will start with this model, the largest, which will take the fight to theLand Rover Discovery Sport when it hits showrooms.
It also indicates the production version of the Vision S will be slightly longer than a Nissan X-Trail. It’ll be 1.91m wide and 1.68m tall, so significantly wider and higher than the new SEAT Ateca, too.
