Skoda has released the first sketch of its Vision C design study, which will be officially unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show next month. The five-door coupe concept shows off Skoda’s new design language as it moves on into the next stage.
Skoda is in the process of broadening its range of models and renewing the existing ones, in what it claims is the most comprehensive model campaign in its history.The design study shows us what can be expected from the future cars from the Czech manufacturer’s stable. The front of the car features Skoda’s new logo on an elongated hood. The headlamp assembly contains three projectors each. We expect the grille to be similar to the one on Skoda’s own Vision D concept. The lower bumper is split into two by a slat and integrates triangular fog lamps at its ends. The side profile particularly is interesting as the swooping roofline flows into the rear to give it a fastback like appearance and theflared wheel arches house massive 10-spoke alloy wheels.
A closer look at the design study shows us similarities between this car and the Volkswagen CC, a D-segment car sold in VW’s other global markets. Keeping in mind Volkswagen’s strategy of maintaining a common thread between the cars under its ownership, we can expect the final product emerging from the Vision C to be based on the CC. Obviously it will take a long time for this car to materialise and we expect it to retain the overall design in a toned down demeanour.
