Skoda is again at the center of rumors and this time is not about the future of their sport RS variants. According to point our colleagues from Auto Express, the Czech company’s senior leaders have declared that a Skoda Kodiaq Coupé has been approved for its development and commercialization in the old continent.
If true, the mark belongs to the Volkswagen Group would leave aside, by this time, their main bases of practicality and great habitability; a formula that has worked well for several years. As Skoda usually does precisely to these vehicles really spacious and practical, we assumed a real surprise that decides to enter the competitive segment of the SUV silhouette coupé with the Skoda Kodiaq Coupe.
“The SUV coupé is a wonderful diversion.” We will make the brand even more emotional”, stated Bernhard Maier, CEO of the brand. The truth is that Skoda had already authorized the development of a Kodiaq with aesthetic coupé for the Chinese market, but we did not expect that they egged on to market it in Europe, where the majority of these vehicles belong to Premium brands. However, in the ranks of Skoda wonder where produced, since they currently have a wide range of vehicles and failure to land the new Skoda Yeti.
If really this project materialize, can expect a similar to the Skoda Kodiaq aesthetic while introducing a few rasgyou slightly more sporting and a softer ceiling drop. In any case, it is more as anor the SUV coupé with better space in his cockpit, although he would lose the possibility of 7 squares and, in theory, would reduce the space in height for the rear seats. Even so, it would presumably be broader and would have a higher load capacity than its closest rivals.
