A new promotional event for Skoda's upcoming Rapid light sedan has revealed a first look at what could be the Czech brand's next production model.
The identity of the car is unclear, although it is possible that this image previews the next-generation Octavia, taking on a more traditional hatch appearance.
In its current form, now eight years old, the Octavia is offered as a sedan-like liftback hatch and as a wagon.
Skoda is also understood to be developing a five-door version of the Rapid sedan, although the unique front and rear tail-lights of this design, along with the clearly longer wheelbase, suggest this is an unrelated model.
The design of the rendering shown here, overlayed with details of the interior seating layout, also bears more than a few similarities to the VisionD concept revealed early last year.
For now, Skoda is saying nothing. Watch this space for more details in the coming months.
