As previously reported, the second generation Skoda Roomster will be launched in 2016. A new rendering from X-Tomi Design previews the 2016 Skoda Roomster, unofficially. The rendering seems to have been created from the new generation model’s test mules that have been recently spied wearing a production body. The design appears to be very close to what the production version would look like, as it takes cues from the spy shots as well as the fourth generation VW Caddy on which it will be based.
The 2016 Roomster is said to get larger in size and offer an even roomier cabin than it already does. The rear doors with integrated vertical door handlers will be replaced by new sliding doors offered on the VW Caddy. While the overall body structure will be similar to the VW Caddy, styling cues will be borrowed from the third generation Superb. Prototype spy shots have already revealed that the front will feature new headlamps, radiator grille and air dam grille similar to the all-new flagship saloon. The all-new Roomster should get new, more efficient EU6-compliant TSI petrol and TDI diesel engines.
For those expecting a commercial version, Skoda is not going to do that. Jozef Kaban, chief of Skoda Auto Design, has said that the next-gen Roomster will be offered only as a passenger vehicle.
