Skoda is planning a coupe SUV to sit alongside its forthcoming five- and seven- seat crossover that's due on sale early in 2017.
The 4.7m-long SUV - as yet unnamed but not likely to be called Snowman, according to Skoda insiders - has now been finalised. It features a clamshell bonnet, slim rectangular headlights, LED daytime running lights that incorporate indicators, and a sharp horizontal crease just before its window line.
Cabin space in the new model is on a par with the Superb's, according to sources - and the substantial boot can be extended further by moving either or both parts of the 60/40 split rear seat forwards by about 17cm.
The car will be offered as a five- or a seven-seat model, with UK prices likely to start from around £24,000.
Skoda is also considering a more sporty five-door model, sitting on the same wheelbase but with around 12cm less overhang than on the regular model. It also features a more rakish roofline and more compromised rear packaging - factors which are likely to lead to Skoda waiting for Western European reaction to the regular SUV before deciding whether its traditional buyers are ready to accept a more style-focused model.
