Skoda is all set to reveal their new concept, the Skoda Vision RS at the Paris Motor Show. Our first glimpse at the car previewed as a sketch shows a brilliant looking car. The design conveys Skoda’s vRS design taste. It features sharp lines all over and an extremely aerodynamic design. The Vision RS concept will also be the basis of the design for its future compact car line-up from the manufacturer.
The car sports sharp looking headlights up front. It complements well with the big front grille and sharp body skirts. The rear features very big tail lamps and attention-grabbing Skoda logo placed in a unique position. It also gets aerodynamic spoilers at the rear. The car will be 4,356mm long, 1,810mm wide, 1,431mm tall and it’ll have a wheelbase of 2,650mm. This will put the new concept in the leagues of the VW Golf, Vauxhall Astra, and the Ford Focus.
The Skoda Vision RS is unofficially expected to replace the Skoda Rapid as a hatchback. Although it is extremely unlikely to be monikered as Rapid. The car will use the MQB A0 platform as seen in Seat Ibiza, Volkswagen Polo, and Seat Arona. This will improve the handling of the car vastly. This will also be the first car from the Czech manufacturer to utilize this platform.
Inside Skoda Auto Technical Development Centre:
Audi has also released a video that shows inside the Skoda Auto Technical Development Centre in Mlada Boleslav, Czech Republic. It shows Skoda’s lead designer Oliver Stefani sitting across a Skoda 130 RS and sketching the Vison RS. This signifies Skoda attention to the motorsport pedigree. The 130 RS is a legendary car is their history which boasts of a double victory in the 1970s WRC 2.
Skoda also plans to launch the fastest 7-seater car yet, The Kodiaq vRS along with the Skoda Vision RS. The Kodiaq vRS features a 2.0-liter engine pumping out 236BHP. This takes the 1.7-tonne car from 0 to 100kmoh in just 6.5 secs. Read our coverage of the Skoda Kodiaq vRS. Both the cars will debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 2019.
