Car Skoda VisionS – era of high technology

Car Skoda VisionS – era of high technology

03.06.2016
Here's a review of the Skoda VisionS – a spacious prototype for the future model. In the interior, there are a lot of liquid crystal displays and electronic gadgets. Due to this prototype, we can understand what cars Skoda will produce in the future.

The VisionS is a conceptual design and prototype, but the Czech group plans to create something similar to this prototype for sale soon. How can this model surprise us?

According to the automaker, the VisionS crossover should become a new flagship of the Skoda. The car will be built on the platform of the new Volkswagen Tiguan, but it will have a long base. The Czechs didn't want to copy the German SUV, so they decided to make an original car. Let's rent a car to examine this model.

Exterior

The concept looks impressive and a bit aggressive. Of course, the model won't have retractable door handles or a strange front bumper. However, the model will definitely have an angular silhouette and narrow headlights. The VisionS will be more prestigious than Yeti. The Kia Sorento Primeand the Hyundai Grand Santa Fe will be its main competitors.

Interior

In the interior, there are a lot of liquid crystal displays and electronic gadgets. According to the Skoda's managers, an animated screen on the dashboard will be installed into the new model. However, its design won't be that bright. But displays on the dashboard near the passenger side and multimedia will appear only in 5-10 years.

Driver's bucket seat is perfect for any driver although the seat is a bit tough. The rear seat is spacious, so even tall passengers will feel comfortable. The third row can be adjusted in the longitudinal direction. The trunk is 460 liters (the serial car will have about 600 liters). The lithium-ion battery is hidden under the raised floor, and its is capacity 12.4kW.

Driving performance

VisionS оснащается:

  • a 1.4-liter, 156bhp TSI turbocharged engine;
  • a 6-speed DSG robotized gearbox with an 54bhp electric motor;
  • a rear axle is controlled by an electric machine that capacity 116bhp.

It's difficult to expect any sensations from a concept car because it's just a prototype for a future model. However, we can see some advantages and disadvantages. For example, the start is smooth and soft, and the acceleration is linear. But the car isn't designed for active driving. Steering isn't excellent although the braking system works perfectly.

The result of car rental without a driver

The VisionS gives only a rough idea of what a crossover will look like. If they change the exterior and interior design and keep a petrol engine with a robotic gearbox, it will be a typical crossover of the VAG group – a practical car with good handling. At the same time, due to this prototype, we can understand what cars Skoda will produce in the future.
