Czech car manufacturer Skoda has been on a roll these days, producing some truly brilliant cars for different segments of the automotive market. The latest effort by the Volkswagen group-owned company is a 5 door coupe concept called the Vision C.
Most of the complaints received by Skoda were regarding the rather tame styling of their cars and by the looks of things, they have done something to redress that issue. The Vision C concept looks dignified but devilish with its angry, triangular headlamp and fog lamp clusters. The front grille has the butterfly design that is now part of Skoda’s design philosophy for all their new cars. Look at the sides of the car and one thing that strikes you immediately is the absence of the door handles. The handles are, in fact, hidden underneath the high tornado line that runs the entire length of the car. To open the doors, one simply has to touch the recessed door handles and the door will pop open.
Power is provided by a combination of a turbocharged petrol engine and a CNG system that works in tandem to push the Vision C all the way to a top speed of 214 kph. Being a Skoda, practicality is still given high priority in this car and 4 people can be taken comfortably, along with things that need to be stored. The rear passengers get multimedia screens that can be folded away when not in use. Even the boot is extremely capacious, proving that Skoda can very well build great cars that are immensely sensible and good looking at the same time.
