First Real Photos of New Skoda VisionC Five-Door Coupe Concept

When we first laid eyes on the initial computer renderings of the new Skoda VisionC Concept, we immediately thought of it as an affordable and smaller Czech iteration of the Audi A7 Sportback, and we’ll stick to that after seeing these real life images of the car, released before its world premiere in Geneva.

If you ask Skoda, it’s a “five-door coupé”, thanks to the rear lift gate, and a car that “represents the next stage in Skoda’s design language” while also highlighting the brand’s intentions to enter more segments and niches to “consolidate its position as an international high-volume manufacturer”.

There’s also a lot of talk about the whats and hows of the VisionC’s design and styling elements both inside and out in Skoda’s release, but no so much about the car’s technical details.

Skoda does say that the four-seater model is built on the VW Group’s modular MQB platform and draws power from a 109 hp (110PS) 1.4-liter turbocharged bi-fuel engine running on either petrol or CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), which allows for a top speed of 214km/h (133mph). In CNG mode, the concept consumes 3.4 kg or 5.1 m3 of natural gas per 100 kilometers, corresponding to a CO2 output of 91 g.

While no exterior dimensions were shared, we suspect from Skoda’s words that the VisionC was designed to fill the gap between the more mundane 4.66m-long Octavia and 4.84m-long Superb models, so that should give you an idea of its size.
