Skoda Vision RS unveiled


The Skoda Vision RS plug-in hybrid concept hatch has been unveiled ahead of the 2018 Paris motor show.

Squint and imagine the car with a more comfortable wheel/tyre combination, a toned down bumper design, proper door handles, framed windows, and larger wing mirrors, and the Vision RS looks suspiciously like a production car.

We already know the car measures 4356mm long, 1810mm wide, 1431mm tall, and rides on a 2650mm wheelbase, meaning the Vision RS likely previews the next-generation Rapid.

If so, the new car will be a far more attractive proposition, at least in terms of looks, than today’s rather utilitarian model. The new Rapid will reportedly be based on the cheaper-to-produce MQB-A0, which is used by the Volkswagen Polo and other vehicles.

The concept car is fitted with many parts which fit with the sport RS sub-brand, including 20-inch alloy wheels, a rear diffuser and spoiler, and sports seats with floating backrests.

Concept-only features include illuminated crystal logos and interior trim, and an illuminated grille. Interestingly the company has opted for Skoda script on the tailgate and steering wheel rather than its arrowhead logo.
