Skoda SUV planned

Skoda is a company that always faced competition and lately it defied the economical crises, too. The name of the brand hides a passion for sensible engineering, a great design and an awesome precision. And taking into account the quality- price report we might say it is one of the most affordable brand on the market. It is also constantly improving its image. Therefore it plans on introducing a new SUV model by 2016.

The SUV segment in the auto field is at its peak and more and more people are attracted to buying such a vehicle. So, Skoda needs to reinforce its name in the segment, especially because its current SUV model, the Skoda Yeti, has had plenty of success. The new model that the Czech company is planning will be using the MQB platform fro m Volkswagen. The German Volkswagen CrossBlue concept will be the inspiring element for the future SUV.

The new Skoda SUV will most likely be 4.6 meters long and will be available with five and seven-seat configurations. To satisfy all clients, standard FWD and optional AWD can be ordered. Among the engine configurations we might get to see a diesel electric hybrid setup. Besides this brand new model, Skoda is also working on improving the Yeti, to turn it into a more SUV like vehicle.
