Skoda will be arriving at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show with an electric concept, new variants and packages of the current cars, and public debut of their supermini. The Czech carmaker will also showcase its all-digital instrument cluster for its premium cars at the Geneva stage.
Firstly, Skoda will showcase another Vision concept this time, called the Vision X. It previews a new crossover which will be positioned below the Karoq. This is the fourth Vision Concept from Skoda and teases the new SUV design language from the Czech carmaker.
The new-generation Fabia supermini will make its first public appearance after a reveal earlier this month. The new Fabia gets restyled front and rear sections with a dash of the LED head and tail lights. The cabin is heavily revised as well. It now sits on larger 18-inch wheels and gets all the goodies on the inside. Under the hood, there are choices of four three-cylinder engines both in diesel and petrol.
The Kodiaq SUV will get the famous L&K treatment. With the L&K spec, the SUV will come with 19-inch Sirius wheels, cosmetic trims on the grille and bumpers along with stylish interiors. The powertrain will remain the same.
The Superb sedan will debut a new 2.0-litre TSI producing 270bhp mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Meanwhile, the Octavia RS will be seen with the optional Challenge Plus package. The top-of-the-line variant of the 245bhp sedan will pack in an electronically controlled VAQ limited-slip differential.
Skoda’s all-new digital instrument cluster which was first introduced in the Karoq will make its way to the Octavia, Superb and the Kodiaq as well. The all-digital instrument panel is similar to Audi’s Virtual Cockpit and displays all the details such as speed, rpm, fuel gauge, navigation, music sound system, telephone or assistance systems. The size and positioning of the information displayed can also be freely configured. Skoda says that the panel’s displays can be individually programmed and there’s a choice of different layouts as well.
The 88th edition of the Geneva Motor Show opens its gates on 6 March. Stay tuned to CarWale for an in-depth coverage of the Swiss auto show.
