Skoda VisionC concept details and image gallery released ahead of Geneva debut
Skoda will premiere its design debut concept called the VisionC at the Geneva Motor Show 2014. This five door coupe chassis, a first for Skoda, hints at the design of future sedans to come out of its stables. This concept will eventually give rise to a model slated to fill the gap between the Octavia and the Superb sedans. The VisionC is based on Skoda's MQB design architecture. The company says that the car is quite spacious and can carry five occupants in comfort along with their luggage.
The front is characterized by the Skoda family grille and those triangular fog and headlamps.

KODA VISIONC' DESIGN CONCEPT press release
|Evolution: KODA VisionC the next stage in the development of KODA design language Design: Expressive, dynamic, confident, emotional Concept: KODA develops its first five-door coupé chassis Characteristic of KODA: Design meets functionality - Coupé with large hatch Technology: Modern modular technology, low weight and optimised aerodynamics for responsible individual mobility Environment: already meet the stringent EU2020 emissions standard using conventional technology - 91g CO2/km Mladá Boleslav, 27 February 2014 As a part of the most comprehensive model campaign in the brand's history, KODA is renewing and expanding its model range. The design language of the dynamic and elegant five-door coupé 'KODA VisionC' introduces the next evolutionary step in KODA design: The design is becoming more expressive, dynamic and emotional and underpins the dawn of the brand. At the same time the five-door coupé concept demonstrates the possibilities in innovative and emotional chassis design. For more than 100 years, KODA has been manufacturing cars with high demands on design. KODA is once again emphasising the traditional brand's expertise in design and engineering through the 'KODA VisionC' design concept. "We are signalling the next stage in the evolution of KODA's design language with 'KODA 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," says Prof. Dr. h.c. Windried Vahland, KODA CEO. As a five-door coupé, the 'KODA 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. In addition to its creative ambition, the 'KODA VisionC' impressively demonstrates the KODA engineers' concept of ingenuity; design, engineering, space, functionality and the emotional coupé shape combine in compelling unity. The 'KODA VisionC' provides plenty of room for four people and their luggage. The large boot and excellent loading capacity are characteristic of KODA. Modern MQB technology, approaching series-produced drive systems, low weight and optimised aerodynamics also demonstrate the high potential of responsible individual mobility. Under the bonnet, we find a CNG/petrol bivalent 1.4 TSI/81 kW turbo engine. On natural gas, the vehicle consumes a mere 3.4 kg or 5.1 m3 CNG per kilometre, equating to CO2 emissions of only 91 g/km. KODA has made a huge leap in demonstrating that even attractive mid-class vehicles can meet the stringent EU2020 CO2 emissions standard with today's conventional drive technology.|
