Live at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show Skoda brought some lovely ladies to back up the couple of hot models on display. The Skoda VisionD Concept is on show but its technical details haven’t been released. It’s a glimpse at the design future of the Skoda C segment vehicles and seems to take some inheritance from the 1999 Seat Leon (particularly in the squared-off headlights and front design), but with a number of modern touches including the trendy, coupé-like rear.
The VisionD Concept is an attractive mix of striking angles and curves and its wheels, with their propeller design, contribute to the minimalist look. It appears next to the Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo edition which celebrates 110 years of racing and sports activity for the company. It’s got a hot-hatch style with twin-tone black and red colours. It will go on sale with two engine options: the 1.2 TSI with 105 hp and the 1.6 TDI with 105 hp. They cost 16,040 and 18,700 euros respectively and come with a five-speed manual gearbox. The new Skoda logo was also revealed live at the Geneva Show, adorning the front of the VisionD Concept.
