Skoda plans large SUV
* Skoda rival to Hyundai Santa Fe * Five- and seven-seat versions * Could be based on VW Crossblue...
Skoda is planning to build a large SUV to rival the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe and Kia Sorento.
Skoda CEO Winfried Vahland told What Car?: 'We are looking at building a large SUV, and it will need to be available with both five and seven seats to reflect the demands of different markets.'
However, Vahland indicated that this would be the only seven-seat car in the Skoda line-up for some time to come.
'Our new products need to be internationally viable, and the worldwide MPV market is in decline,' he said.
