Article by Christian A., on December 21, 2013

According to Skoda chief Winfried Vahland, the Czech carmaker is planning to launch a large SUV in 2016. As expected, the new model sill use Volkswagen Group’s well-known MQB platform. What’s more interesting is that the new SUV from Skoda will actually be a version of the Volkswagen CrossBlue SUV, that will be launched in 2015.

Autocar says that the Skoda SUV has no name for the moment, but what we know is that it will be a class up from the Volkswagen Tiguan, with a length of around 4.6 meters. Skoda will offer five-seat and seven-seat configuration, as well as front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

Skoda technical chief Frank Welsch said that the SUV will be the right concept for Skoda as it works perfectly with company’s brand values.

Under the hood, we will find the well-known 2.0-liter four-cylinder engines but also a diesel-electric configuration. A smaller 1.6-liter turbodiesel engine will also be available. The good news is that Skoda is planning a third SUV, with a similar size to the Yeti. More details to be revealed!
