Skoda will reportedly start production of its SUV towards the end of next year at the Kvasiny factory in Czech Republic.

Last December Skoda boss Winfried Vahland said an SUV will arrive in 2016, and it seems they will live up to this promise as local media in Czech Republic says production of the model will commence towards the end of next year. The model in question will allegedly receive the "Snowman" moniker and will be produced at the firm's factory in Kvasiny where they currently make the Roomster, Yeti and Superb.

It is believed that in the first half of 2016 at the same assembly plant workers will start putting together Seat's crossover. Chances are both models will ride on a modified variant of Volkswagen Group's MQB platform and will help the automotive giant reach its bold objective of becoming the largest automaker by 2018.
