Seven-seat Skoda SUV on the way

We've got all the details on a big new Skoda 4x4 due on sale by 2016

A seven-seat Skoda SUV is in the pipeline, and should be on sale within the next couple of years. Production hasn’t yet been confirmed, but a Skoda insider told Carbuyer’s deputy editor, Graham Hope, it is “very close, if not yet finalised.”

The Skoda SUV is expected to rival cars like the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento, and will be available with a choice of five or seven seats. It will sit above the current Skoda Yeti, and be the most expensive car in the maker’s range.

Although no pictures have been released, we can tell from Skoda’s current design direction that the new model will feature a familiar grille and headlights, as well as a logical and well-laid out dashboard, including the latest infotainment stereo and sat-nav system.

We expect the new Skoda SUV to feature a range of economical TDI diesels, as well as a selection of turbocharged TSI petrol engines. It will be available with a choice of two or four-wheel drive, with the latter designed to rival off-road vehicles from Land Rover and Toyota.

The new model will play a big part in the manufacturer’s bid to sell 1.5 million cars globally by 2018. For context, Skoda sold 522,500 cars in the first six months of 2014 – the first time it has exceeded half a million units over any six month period.
