Skoda has been teased its all-new hatchback model in a new picture ahead of its world debut.
The car will make its public debut before the end of 2018 and ahead of that, the firm has released a picture of it online.
The new image of the vehicle shows the car’s silhouette which resembles both the Skoda Fabia and VW Golf.
The picture seems to also resemble the Skoda Vision RS which was on display at the Paris Motor Show 2018 last week.
Skoda unveiled the plug-in hybrid Vision RS at the event displaying its youthful and sporty looks.
It is also relatively speedy and is powered by a 150PS 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine and and electric motor which produces 102PS.
Together the 145PS powertrain allows the car to sprint from 0-62mph in 7.1 seconds.
On battery power alone the car will be able to travel 43 miles and the 13kWh can be recharged in just 2.5 hours.
It is likely that many elements on the Vision RS will inform the firm’s future compact model in terms of its design and potentially the powertrain.
What we do know bout the new car is that it will be derived from the AO VW Group’s MQB platform.
This is the same platform that the company uses to produce the VW Polo on among other vehicles produced by there VW Group.
The car is replacing the Rapid, but it won’t necessarily be as compact as that vehicle and could be as big as the Golf.
The same platform it will be built on is shared with compact crossovers such as the T-Roc.
It is likely to sit between the new Fabia and Octavia in the company’s line-up alluding to perhaps a Golf-sized hatchback.
Skoda will launch the vehicle towards the end of the year before it goes on sale in 2019.
