Skoda will unveil the Octavia Coupe Concept at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show

Article by Christian Andrei, on December 11, 2013

Skoda is preparing to surprise us with an Octavia Coupe Concept in March, at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show. According to AutoExpress, the new Octavia Coupe Concept will be based on the same MQB platform as the Octavia, featuring the same 1,868 mm wheelbase.

With a sleeker profile, just like the Volkswagen CC, Octavia Coupe will keep its booth space and will offer around 1,500 litres with the rear seats down. This would be an advantage comparing it with the premium four-door coupe such as the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe or the Mercedes-Benz CLS.

This new concept will actually preview a production version as Skoda aims to surpass one million units sold in 2013. Two new Skoda factories are currently being built in China as Skoda wants to sell 500,000 cars per year in this country, up from 235,700 in 2012.

As expected, Skoda will also offer a vRS version of the new Octavia Coupe, with a choice of 2.0 TSI or 2.0 TDI engines, and either a six-speed manual or a six-speed DSG gearbox.
