2013 Skoda Octavia Coupe Rendered
Kaustubh Shinde, They say sooner or later your passion finds you. Sometime in late 2009, I started writing for IAB and ever since then it has been a roller coaster ride for me. An amazing experience that has taught me a lot, taken me to new places, driven some great cars and met some amazing people. When you don't find me on IAB (very rarely), you will find me either at a coffee shop or an eatery or at the nearest gadget store. Hope you enjoy IAB as much as we do!
We saw the 2013 Skoda Octavia sedan, we saw the station wagon, we also saw the vRS model. Now it is time to get a glimpse of what the coupe model might look like.
Our second favorite rendering specialist TheophilusChin from Malaysia has rendered the 2013 Skoda Octavia in Coupe avatar. Sitting on the new MQB platform, the Skoda Octavia coupe looks too sober and sophisticated.
The whole point of a two door coupe should be the sex appeal. It should be a red blood saucy pole dancer with some whipped cream and a cherry on top. This one is a bit too ‘coffee with a librarian’ type.
The roofline of this coupe slopes down beautifully at the rear. Clearly, the rear will be a notchback design. The small kink at the rear windows is absolutely exquisite. The alloy wheel design is very sporty.
Skoda’s identity in the market as ‘a low cost Volkswagen’ hinders Skoda from building coupes. I mean a low cost coupe is an absolute antithesis of a coupe. However, looking at Volkswagen Group’s new product strategy, there is a good chance that Skoda will be put the Octavia Coupe in production.
Even if it does head to production, there is almost no chance of this body style heading towards the Indian shores.
