Skoda Unveils VisionC Concept Five-Door Coupe

For decades, Skoda has been manufacturing models that offer practicality  as well as performance at the expense of good looks. But lately, the Czech Republic giant, who is also a part of the Volkswagen Group of companies, has started focusing equally on design as on other areas of the vehicle. A while ago the car maker came up with Skoda Mission L concept which greatly inspired the latest generation Skoda Octavia.

Today, the company has released a new concept called the Skoda VisionC which takes a new approach on concept car design. In fact, going by how effectively Skoda used the Mission L design, the VisionC could become the face of all new models or perhaps the next generation iterations of the outgoing models.

The VisionC is a five door coupe which features an even more expressive design language in comparison with the Mission L. Instead of using strong creases across the body for that attention-seeking look, Skoda has used plenty of mildly contoured convex and concave surfaces.

Despite being a five door model, Skoda engineers gave the concept a coupe look, hence striking a perfect balance between a sporty design and practicality. The car is based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform and therefore offers enough room for passengers without sacrificing on cargo space.

Powering the Skoda VisionC is a bifuel – CNG/petrol run 1.4 liter turbo engine which can produce a nice 81 kW. When running on compressed natural gas, the car consumes close to 3.4 kg of gas per kilometer, which converts to 91 g/km of CO2.
