  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Skoda VisionS Concept Provides Glimpse of VW’s Three-Row SUV

Recommended Posts

Details about Volkswagen’s upcoming, Tennessee-built mid-size crossover are scarce, but for a view through a Czech lens at what it could look like, peep Skoda’s VisionS concept. Just like VW’s upcoming crossover, it’s based on the MQB modular-transversal architecture, it’s quite large (185.0 inches long, 75.2 inches wide, 66.1 inches tall), and it is fitted with a psychologically indispensable feature to those shopping in the huge family-crossover market: Three rows of seating.

-

The VisionS is powered by VW’s 1.4-liter TSI engine, rated at 156 horsepower and driving the front wheels. A six-speed dual-clutch transmission incorporates a small electric motor that produces up to 64 additional horsepower. There is more electrification, as all-wheel drive is enabled by an additional 115-hp electric motor that powers the rear wheels. Total system output with all power sources up and running comes in at 225 horsepower.

To provide enough juice for the electric motors and “up to 19 miles” of fully electric range, the VisionS is fitted with a large lithium-ion battery pack ahead of the rear axle. Fuel economy on the European plug-in-hybrid test cycle—which is quite favorable to vehicles of this type, to say the least—is 124 mpg. The sprint from 0 to 62 mph is said to take 7.4 seconds, while top speed is rated at 124 mph. We do expect something like this powertrain to be offered, or at least considered, for the eventual three-row VW.

The VisionS is designed in typical Skoda fashion, with angular and horizontal lines, and less chrome than you might see on the models from corporate parent VW. The tackiest element is the pair of massive exhaust pipes, which look as if they were taken straight from the old Audi Q7 V12 TDI. Otherwise, this is a supremely clean and good-looking crossover, which might portend good things for its U.S.-market VW sibling.
