2014 Geneva: Skoda debuts VisionC Concept five-door coupe [Live Photos]

Article by Christian A., on March 4, 2014

It appears that Skoda aims to boost its image even further with the unveiling of the new VisionC Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. The new five-door coupe features an emotionally-charged design as well as ultra-modern technical features, low emissions, light weight and optimized aerodynamics.

Skoda Chief designer Jozef Kaba and his team managed to achieve unique combination of soft, light contours, concave and convex surfaces as well as sharp, precise lines. The concept car’s front end features a wide radiator grille, distinctive LED headlights, triangular fog lights. In the lower area we see a large air inlet, while the bonnet is elongated and accentuated with longitudinal chamfering to the right and left.

From the side, the VisionC Concept shows a high tornado line, low-lying front windscreen, while the short overhangs emphasise the vehicle’s dynamic distinctiveness. Typically for a Skoda, the lower side window line slopes gradually backwards, sweeping down to the rear side window of the back door. Meanwhile, the designers made the handle ‘disappear’, as these are found directly under the tornado line.

The rear end emphasizes the dynamic aspiration of the concept as well as the long wheelbase. The C-shaped taillights are divided into two parts, with the C being separated horizontally through the middle. The exterior design is completed by the 19-inch aluminum wheels.

In addition, state-of-the-art MQB technology, a close-to-production drive system, light weight and optimised aerodynamics all demonstrate great potential for ‘sensible’ individual mobility with optimized environmental values and the best possible value for money. Under the hood we find a 1.4 TSI engine that delivers 110 hp (81 kW) and offers a top speed of 214 km/h or 133 mph.

Fuel consumption is just 3.4 kg or 5.1 m3 natural gas per 100 kilometres, corresponding to a CO2 output of just 91 g. Inside, the Skoda VisionC Concept offers a glimpse of Skoda’s interior design of the future.

Striking interior features include a recurrent elegant interplay of convex and concave surfaces, precise lines and the use of top quality, state-of-the-art materials. In front of the driver there is a fully-programmable combined unit with a large 3D display.
