Meet Skoda VisionC CNG Concept that reminds of Audi A7
VW Group’s Czech car maker, Skoda Auto revealed the first official sketch of their VisionC Concept car, that is due for a debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. Powered by a 1.4l TSI four cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, that can also run on CNG, the VisionC study delivers 110 PS power and meets Europe’s stringent 2020 emission norms.
Built on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, Skoda says that the VisionC is their five door coupe. A look at the car and you will have no trouble relating the VisionC to it’s distant cousin, which goes by the name Audi A7 sportback. Speaking about the new car, their CEO, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland, says, “We are signaling the next stage in the evolution of ŠKODA’s design language with ‘ŠKODA VisionC’, and thus highlighting the dawn of the brand. The vehicle demonstrates the company’s outstanding design and engineering expertise, and underpins the dynamism and value of one of the world’s longest-established automotive companies.”
As far as feasibility is concerned, the car can easily sit between the existing Octavia and Superb nameplate. We are yet to see the car from inside, but the images do make us feel that there is plenty of room on the inside for at least four people. Boot too looks big, and should be enough to carry the luggage of 4.
Skoda adds, “As a five-door Coupé, the ‘ŠKODA VisionC’ features a new expressive, dynamic and emotional design language. The interplay of soft, slightly contoured, concave and convex surfaces, as well as sharp, precise lines creates an immediate impact. The surfaces and proportions demonstrate clear arrangement and a striking interaction of light and shadow. The front has an air of confidence and energy, and the tailgate adds an element of surprise, accentuated with a radical conclusion.”
