Skoda Snowman to be unveiled by the end of 2015 image

The Czech based automaker Skoda is getting ready to add an entirely new model in its range, a large SUV with the Snowman moniker, by the end of this year.

Rumors on Skoda working on an SUV larger than the current Yeti have been around for quite some time and it seems that the car manufacturer is getting ready to officially pull the wraps off the model in question. According to the guys from Car Advice, the new Skoda Snowman will be unveiled by the end of this year at a special event which will be taking place in the Czech Republic.

Keep in mind that the Snowman name hasn’t been confirmed at this time and it seems that this vehicle might also roll off under the Polar moniker. The large SUV will be using an adaptation of the MQB B platform from the new Skoda Superb generation and it will be getting a few similarities in design with the Combi version of the Superb.

The new Skoda Snowman / Polar is said to stand at about 4.6 meters in length and to get a 5-seat layout in standard, with two additional seats at the rear, but these will most likely be tailored only to children. In the entry-level variant, it will come with two-wheel drive, but more expensive versions will also get the all-wheel drive configuration. A public debut of the model is expected to be made next year, during the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, in March.
