Skoda has revealed China’s new crossover

The harbinger of the news was unveiled in early June, 2019 in the framework of the motor show in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.

The China division of Skoda has revealed the first few sketches of the concept Vision GT in April 2019 during the Shanghai motor show. At the end of last month was presented a new image of the future model. Then it was assumed that the novelty will be the version kupeobrazny crossover Kamiq, which entered the Chinese market in the past year. In early June, the world premiere of the car, however, until the status of a concept. It turned out that this is not a cross-coupe, a sporty version of Kamika.

The design of the concept SUV a Chinese joint venture SAIC-VW, which also launched production of Skoda Kamiq for the local market. Presented the show car and SUV Kamik similar design of the sidewalls, but the front part of the Vision GT looks more aggressive. The “sport” view of the novelty is also attached sloping roof, two tone bodywork and 20-inch wheels.

Already this year, closer to the end of 2019, presented at the auto show in Shenzhen, the concept will become a production model. According to local media, the basis of the future sports version Kamiq will be MQB platform. Note the usual “celestial” Kamik is based on the old “truck” PQ25 (got it from a Skoda Rapid). He also has a relatively modest design and poor equipment. While the European version Kamiq got a modular platform and, unlike the Chinese “brother,” bunk head optics and modern driver assistance systems.

We can assume that, if new to really put on the MQB, the new crossover unify with the European “namesake”. Then the model in future can go beyond the Chinese market.

Both cars have front-wheel drive only.
