2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe Release Date
Volkswagen’s subsidiary Skoda Auto has announced the launch of several new models. Most of these premieres will happen within the increasingly popular SUV segment. The brand new crossover to join the existing Skoda Yeti will be the Snowman SUV model. Moreover, the Snowman family is expected to be joined by two new models. One of them is the 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe, which is expected to go on sale by 2017.
By introducing these all-new vehicles, the Czech automaker plans to boost the sales figures up to 1.5 million units per year. In addition to the aforementioned Snowman and the 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe, expect to see the new-generation Yeti SUV as well as the brand new Skoda Polar SUV. Whereas the Yeti II is due to go on sale in 2017, the Polar SUV is expected to make its debut by 2019. As for the new Polar, it will be based on the Fabia as the smallest model in the company’s SUV range.
The 2016 Skoda Snowman is expected to be premiered at a special event that should take place in late 2015 in Czech Republic. The rest of the public will have to wait for the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Not long after the Snowman’s premiere, we expect the 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe to be unwrapped. It is expected to hit the dealerships in early 2017.
2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe Specs
The Snowman will come as the largest model offered by Skoda, featuring a spacious and exceptionally comfortable cabin. Of course, it will be available with a large number of gasoline and diesel engines provided by the Volkswagen Group. With its 4,700 mm in length, the model will bear a great resemblance to the Superb Combi model. Also, there will be two seating configurations to choose between. Apart from the standard five-seat version, the 5+2 configuration will be available as well.
Now, the 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe will be available exclusively as a five-seat. Compared to the standard model, the coupe version will feature a smaller cabin and less cargo space. However, the 2017 Snowman Coupe should come more richly appointed and with a more powerful engine range. There will be both FWD and AWD configurations, and the model is expected to provide superb off-road capabilities. It will resemble the BMW X4 and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe to some extent. Of course, the 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe will come as more of a low-end version of these vehicles.
2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe Price
The 2017 Skoda Snowman Coupe is expected to come with a higher pricing compared to the the standard Snowman SUV. As for the 2016 Skoda Snowman, it is announced to start at €25,000.
