Skoda has come up with an all-new design concept named Vision X which would be showcased in 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Skoda is increasing its market in India and European countries with its all-new models. Its first ever SUV Yeti though didn’t get much appreciation but the all-new Kodiaq SUV is receiving very much applause. This was what the company was waiting for from many years. This even opened doors for newly designed models like Skoda Octavia and Superb.
In 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Skoda has made it’s with the all-new Vision X concept for Compact SUV segment. Now, Skoda has decided to showcase its Vision X compact SUV concept based production- spec model in 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
In 2019, Skoda would be launching this model and it would also compete with its sister company Volkswagen. Volkswagen has introduced it T-cross compact SUV concept in 206 Geneva Motor Show. It is believed that both the compact SUVs would be sharing the same MQB (Modularer Quer Baukasten) platform. Both of these models would get MQB-A0 which is the smallest version of Volkswagen group.
Though the design has not been finalized, the showcase pictures reveal that the model would have a crisp design with high ground clearance and there would all LED light units. Though it can be appreciable, there are questions that the design would be adaptable for Indian roads or the company would alter the design.
On the inside, the cabin is very unique with the X-mark. the dashboard is very sleek with that sits quite low and there is also a touchscreen display. The model would be obviously coming with a 5 member seating capacity as it is a compact SUV. There would obvious specifications like ambient lighting system, climate control and many more. But, the final list of specifications is yet to be decided.
The Vision X concept would feature two engine options. A CNG and 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine, there would also be an electric motor at the rear axle. The engine would churn 130PS power, 200Nm torque and there would be belt driven starter generator that would ease the starting of the engine. This is just like the SHVS system in Suzuki Ciaz and ertiga. There is also a diesel version expected for this model.
This car may enter in India by 2020 and it is evident that this compact SUV would enter immediately after the launch. The new compact SUV would be competing with Hyundai Creta, Renault Captur and its very own sister T-cross from Volkswagen. The price range is yet to be fixed for this model. We can expect that the company would probably announce at 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
