A chassis testing mule of the next generation Skoda Roomster was spied in the Swiss Alps.

The second batch of spy shots with the all-new Roomster has arrived at our office and once again the car is hiding under the body of the outgoing Touran. The new model won't have anything in common with the outgoing car since it will make the switch to Volkswagen Group's MQB platform that will also be utilized by the Touran.

Little else is known about the model right now but thanks to the new architecture it will go through a considerable diet and should borrow the engine lineup from the seventh-generation Golf. Despite losing some weight, expect both the Roomster and Touran to grow in size and offer more rear legroom as well as a more spacious trunk.

The Skoda Roomster is expected to reach European showrooms most likely in the second half of 2015 while the Touran will probably be out a few months earlier and it is believed Volkswagen will sell it in United States.
