Skoda is considering making a medium-to-large MPV with more space and practicality than the small, five-seater Roomster.
'We are talking a lot about this and also about a 4x4,' says the company's technical chief, Dr Eckhard Scholz.
'It is one of the next product lines for us, for sure. It fits in with what Skoda is all about.'
It won't just be a rebadged version of the Volkswagen Sharan or Seat Alhambra twins if Skoda decides to go ahead, however.
'We have so many design ideas. Look at the Roomster or the Yeti (the small 4x4 Skoda plans to introduce next year). They are our own designs and use our own technical solutions,' says Scholz.
He also believes Skoda should introduce a car smaller than the Fabia supermini, the current baby of the range, but it won't be a style-led fashion car like the Mini or the Fiat 500.
'They are for Western countries and we have to think about all our markets, so it would be more practical,' says Scholz.
If it goes ahead, the likely starting price would be around £4500.
