Skoda’s raised the cover on its brand-new Vision E Idea– a car that’s anticipated to inspire the upcoming 2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe. The Idea’s advanced electrical drive system could also make its way into the brand-new, more elegant Kodiaq variant when it goes on sale prior to 2020.
2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe Styling
The Vision E Concept’s sharp, stylish styling is expected to be carried over mainly unchanged to the 2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe. The most obvious adjustment could be the addition of a front grille– to transport air to the Kodiaq’s engine and radiator– thicker roofing pillars to offer greater crash security and traditional doors in location of the concept’s pillarless items.
Our special render, above, pictures what the Vision E’s features might look like in production-ready Kodiaq Coupe type. Significant changes over the standard, rather blocky Kodiaq could consist of slimmer, more aggressive headlights, a classy sloping roofline and renovated front bumpers.
2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe Interior
Unlike the Vision E, the 2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe must boast five functional seats and an useful, family-oriented cabin. In spite of its slinky styling, it’s anticipated to boast more head and legroom than rivals from BMW and Mercedes and ought to feature a more capacious boot, too. Unlike the basic car, the coupe’s not anticipated to be offered with a practical seven-seat alternative.
The brand-new coupe’s control panel must look nearly identical to the standard Kodiaq’s. A similar choice of elegant gloss-black trim pieces, a minimalist button layout and impressive construct quality must all help it feel appropriately upmarket without making it any less useful. The Kodiaq’s touchscreen infotainment system need to also receive a couple of tweaks and updates by the time the coupe goes on sale.
2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe Engines and Driving
Entry-level models could be powered by a brand-new 1.5-litre four-cylinder gas engine producing 148hp while more effective 190hp 2.0-litre diesel models will likely be used, too. As requirement, the coupe might be fitted with front-wheel drive and a manual transmission while higher-spec models must include both four-wheel drive and a DSG automatic ‘box.
The Vision E Concept points to Skoda offering a completely electric or hybrid variation of the upcoming coupe, too. Using a mix of a frugal petrol engine driving the front wheels and a compact electric motor powering the backs, this model should provide both four-wheel-drive grip and outstanding fuel economy figures.
2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe Price and Release Date
The 2020 Skoda Kodiaq Coupe will be launched after a set of other brand-new models. As an outcome, Skoda’s brand-new flagship SUV may not go on sale up until 2020. When it does strike display rooms in the UK, we expect it to carry a sizeable premium over the standard ₤ 12,495 Kodiaq.
