Škoda VisionD Autosalon Nitra 29.9.2011
V prípade auta Škoda VisionD ide o štúdiu, ktorá má ponúknuť ľuďom pohľad do budúcnosti značky. Takto podobne budú vyzerať všetky nové modely mladoboleslavskej firmy.Autá by malo charakterizovať niekoľko vlastností: dlhý rázvor, krátke previsy, veľký vnútorný priestor a ostro rezané svetlomety. Koncept Vision D dostal do vienka karosériu, ktorá je v Európe veľmi žiadaná - päťdverový hatchback.Nová Škoda nevyniká žiadnymi veľkými módnymi výstrelkami. Ide o skutočnú štúdii tvarov a línií, ktoré sa neskôr budú požívať.Rovnako tak by sme sa mohli dočkať aj nového interiéru, aký sa tu prezentoval. Napokon, korporátne unifikované prístrojové dosky už mnohým ľuďom lezú na nervy.Nové sú aj mriežky chladiča, ktoré majú symbolizovať struny harfy. V nich je umiestnené nové logo.Od budúceho roka sa budú objavovať nové okrídlené šípy na kapote. Najdôležitejšia zmena prebehla na hlavnej časti loga - okrídlenom šípe. Ten bude v novom prevedení podstatne väčší a tým aj lepšie viditeľný.
Skoda shows Vision D design concept
Five-door Vision D concept reveals future design direction for Skoda and offers glimpse of new family car.Skoda is readying a bold new look for the Octavia. After top brass toasted best-ever sales of 750,000-plus cars in 2010, they have signalled an all-new design direction at the Geneva show in a hatch that paves the way for the next family model, and the look of all future Skodas to come.The striking white five-door Vision D concept features an enlarged front grille flanked by smaller, simpler headlights than we've seen on previous Skoda models. Clean, unadorned surfaces provide a look of solidity that's similar to the latest cars from stablemate VW. At the rear, the concept features a stubby tail with a series of horizontal lines, giving the appearance of extra width, and stylised C-shaped tail-lights.Jozef Kaban, chief exterior designer for Skoda said: "This new design language is about simplifying surfaces and using great proportions to make an attractive car. There are lots of cars out there that use fancy details to mask poor design, a Skoda will never be one of them."On the inside, the vents and dash-top mirror mimic the angular shapes of the exterior, while the futuristic feel is enhanced by the use of crystal glass on the centre console. A tablet computer doubles up as the touchscreen display and can be removed when your journey is over.The interior has also been conceived with space in mind, with the designers making use of the newcomer's long wheelbase to maximise room for passengers and luggage.Elements of the concept will dictate the look of the firm's next generation of cars, including the fresh logo, which will adorn all models by 2012. The newcomer is most likely a glimpse at the new Octavia, which will be key to Skoda's move into emerging Russian and Chinese markets, as bosses plan to double sales by 2018. It's also a celebration of ownership by the VW Group, which first bought into the Czech firm 20 years ago this month.By www.autoexpress.co.uk
