Skoda has been showcasing different design concepts to potray its future design language and the Czech automaker has been updating designs often. The Skoda Mission L was the last concept showcased at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, on which the current generation is based on. Now, the company ihas revealed the images of the Skoda VisionC, which is a five-door coupé with expressive styling and dynamic elegance. Its design language is a striking development of the new design line adopted three years ago. Elegant lines accentuate the vehicle's exciting proportions. Skoda Chief designer Jozef Kabaň and his team have achieved a unique combination of soft, light contours, concave and convex surfaces as well as sharp, precise lines. Surfaces and proportions convince with a clear structure, the interplay of light and shade is crisp, the edges are clearly defined. For Kabaň, "avoiding all ornament and frills is essential."
The coupé's front has a self-assured and dynamic look. The wide radiator grille and distinctive shape of the headlamps with their tapering triangular form dominate the powerful front end. The headlamp contours are sharp-edged, like cut glass crystals. In combination with the fog lamps, also triangular, they give the car an expressive, three-dimensional four-eyed look.
From the side view, Škoda VisionC appears neat with clean lines. "The form is intended to look attractive. We have dispensed with superfluous corners and edges," says Kabaň. The high tornado line, the low-lying front windscreen and the short overhangs emphasise the vehicle's dynamic distinctiveness. The same goes also in particular for the sharp waistline which starts on the elegant bonnet at the wings, snugly and naturally hugging the sides.
The grille retains its slightly curving form, it is however somewhat flatter and broader than in current Škoda models. The vertical fins are a distinguishing feature. In the design study, they are hand-made crystal elements with discreet indirect illumination.
In the lower area of the front view, a large air inlet - extending over the entire width of the vehicle - emphasises the vehicle's elegant dynamism.
The bonnet is elongated and is accentuated with longitudinal chamfering to the right and left, extending in a slight arc from the A pillar through to the transition between headlamps and radiator grille. Jozef Kabaň describes it as "an expression of emotion, form and movement." This reinterpreted bonnet bears the Škoda logo as its dominating centrepiece, on a harmoniously-rounded bonnet nose stretching into the radiator grille.
Additional visual accents are provided in the doors with backlit crystal decorative elements. Nevertheless, functional aspects are by no means neglected, including storage compartments for one-litre bottles.
Each rear passenger also has a foldaway multimedia screen. A screen integrated into the back section of the central arm rest shows basic information on vehicle operation.
