Skoda has revealed what its version of a Volkswagen Golf GTI rival might look like.

Releasing sketches of the Vision RS concept car, due to be unveiled at the Paris motor show in October, the Czech brand’s hot hatch concept is a preview of the likely replacement for the Rapid Spaceback.

The sketches show typical concept car styling – oversized alloy wheels, a roof-mounted spoiler, aggressive lower front and rear carbon-fibre splitters with a centrally-mounted exhaust as well as pinched front and rear LED lights in-line with Skoda’s new styling direction.

Growing larger than the Rapid Spaceback - or the Fabia that it might also succeed - the five-door Vision RS concept measures 4356mm long, 1810mm wide and 1431mm tall with a 2650mm wheelbase.

No engine details have been released but if it is a rival for the Golf GTI we can expect it to utilise the same 2.0-litre turbocharged four-pot producing around 180kW and 370Nm through a seven-speed wet dual-clutch automatic transmission.

And who knows, it might even take a leap into electrification.

Full details will be announced when the Vision RS debuts at the Paris motor show October 2. Tune in to Drive.com.au then for all of the details live from the show.
