These are official sketches of the Skoda Vision X, which previews a concept car that will be shown at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The showcar will in turn preview a compact ‘urban SUV’ that will sit below Skoda’s Karoq and Kodiaq SUVs.

Skoda describes the Vision X as an ideal companion for an active, urban lifestyle (then again, which SUV is not). The sketch sports FlexGreen paint with a contrasting black roof, and 20-inch alloys. The VW brand says that the X’s sharp design was inspired by traditional Czech glasswork.

The interior of the Vision X shows a new design language for the brand. The wide, contoured dashboard with freestanding colour display dominates the visual impression. Illuminated elements made of cut crystal glass in conjunction with the colour display create atmospheric lighting effects, Skoda says.

According to Autocar, the production Vision X won’t be based on the Fabia, but the MQB A0 platform that also underpins similarly sized VW Group stablemates – the Seat Arona and Volkswagen T-Roc. The concept car will propose a hybrid powertrain. The report adds that the names ‘Amiq’ and ‘Anuq’ have been trademarked, but those would buck Skoda’s SUV naming convention starting with ‘K’.
