Skoda recently introduced the facelifted Superb but that hasn't stopped the company's chief designer from talking about the next-generation model.

Speaking to Auto Express, Jozef Kaban said the car will have a striking design with universal appeal. He declined to go into specifics but said he was inspired by how the iPhone changed market from ”gimmicky flip fronts and lots of buttons to being sleek, simple and blending form and function with nothing superfluous.”

Kaban also revealed future Skodas will have hidden tailpipes, on non RS models, because he believes the cars should “remain focused on space and value for money, rather than pretending to be performance cars.”

The styling guru also confirmed the next-generation Fabia will be introduced next year and will be a "really good-looking car."
