New Skoda Vision GT Concept Teased, Could Preview Kamiq GT For China

China can’t get enough of Skoda SUVs, apparently. The Czech brand sells four different models in the world’s largest car market and plans to expand the lineup further.

Currently, Chinese customers can buy the Kamiq, Karoq, Kodiaq, and Kodiaq GT. In the future, they will also be able to purchase an all-electric crossover based on the Vision iV Concept that has just had its Asian debut at the Shanghai Auto Show.

Announced in Shanghai

As it turns out, more SUVs are on the way. At the ongoing Shanghai show, Skoda released two sketches of yet another concept SUV called the Vision GT. The new crossover study will debut at the 2019 Shenzhen Motor Show at the beginning of June. For now, the automaker only says the Vision GT is “the modern urban car and the new sporty Skoda SUV for China.”

That’s not much but it allows us to learn two or three things about the upcoming model. First of all, we’re dealing with a compact or maybe even small crossover. Secondly, it should be a sporty coupe-SUV model, just like the Kodiaq GT.

Looking at the sketches it’s obvious that the Vision GT features Skoda’s latest design language. The taillights and 3D grille remind of the Euro-spec Kamiq and Scala, while the headlights seem somewhat similar to those of the Chinese-spec Kamiq. Taking all these things into account, we’re inclined to say the Vision GT Concept previews a Kamiq GT.

We’ll definitely learn more about the study in the coming weeks as Skoda starts to offer more clues. Here’s hoping the production model will stick to the design of the concept because the Vision GT promises to be quite a looker.
