As you probably know, this Czech manufacturer is considered as one of the fastest-growing companies in world’s car industry, especially in Europe. We all know for on some excellent models like Octavia, Superb or Fabia, which are considered as some of best models in their classes. However, Skoda constantly expands its offer. Recently, we finally saw one SUV, called Yeti. After this compact SUV, company confirmed that there is also one larger model in development. Although its exact name is still unknown, the name that is most often used is Snowman, so we will also use this one.
2016 Skoda Snowman specs
The 2016 Skoda Snowman will be an all-new model, which will borrow many solutions from models like Yeti or some VW SUVs, but it will also feature many unique characteristics. New model is expected to use VW’ versatile MQB platform, which is used for models like Touran, Golf, Passat, Octavia, Superb and many other. When it is about exterior look, it will follow company’s current design language, so expected to see similar look to Yeti’s, just in bigger pack. It is expected that 2016 Skoda Snowman will be for 15.7 inches longer than Yeti, which will definitely left enough space for third row of seats, so new model will be offered probably in two variants, with five or seven seats. When it is about interior, we expect very luxurious cabin, with not only just elegant styling, but also with plenty of advanced technologies for VW models such as Touareg.
2016 Skoda Snowman engine
Just like it is case with all VW/Skoda models, 2016 Snowman will be also offered in many variants when it is about engines. There will be both petrol and diesel units available. When it about petrol engines, we expect that base model will be powered by 1.4 liter engine with 150 horses. There will be 2.0 liter TSI engine in offer too, which will come in two versions – with 180 and 220 horsepower. When it is about diesel units, 2016 Skoda Snowman will come with 2.0 liter TDI engine, which outputs 150 horses. Although it is just a speculation for now, it also sounds very possible that we will see a hybrid version in years to come.
2016 Skoda Snowman release date and price
It is expected that 2016 Skoda Snowman will come by the end of year. Most likely, it will be presented at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show. Price is still unknown.
