A new report states Skoda will unveil its seven-seat SUV towards the end of this year, likely at a special event organized in Czech Republic.

Believed to be called Snowman or Polar, Skoda's high-riding model will use an adaptation of the MQB B platform of the new Superb while the design will reportedly have a few similarities with the upcoming Superb Combi. It will allegedly be 4.6 meters long and as standard it will have five seats but at an additional cost an extra two rear seats will be available, likely tailored only to children.

A front-wheel drive layout is going to be standard on lesser versions whereas the more expensive ones with beefier engines will benefit from an AWD configuration. Expect the SUV to provide class-leading space just like most of the other Skoda models, along with a full-size spare wheel, great towing capacity and "lots of off-road capability."

A reveal to the large audience is expected in March 2016 at the Geneva Motor Show, with sales likely to commence shortly thereafter.
