Skoda is likely to unveil its ‘Made in India’ concept compact SUV - VISION IN - today, just days before the Auto Expo 2020 kicks off. The vehicle will be showcased at the biennial auto show scheduled to begin on February 7.
Skoda has given a glimpse into what the interior of its new compact SUV VISION IN will look like. The company will unveil the concept vehicle at the Auto Expo in February 2020 in Greater Noida.
The 4.26-metre long study offers a foretaste of a compact SUV specially developed for the Indian market.
The sketch shows a wide dashboard arranged on several levels, which echoes the symmetrical contours of the Skoda grille in the centre. The colour orange, which - Skoda says - inspires vitality and creativity, is used extensively throughout the interior, for example, on the centre armrest and door panels.
The chrome-plated ventilation nozzles on the side are also eye-catching, with fine ventilation louvres spanning almost the entire width of the instrument panel. In addition to the large, free-standing central screen and virtual cockpit, a new crystalline element on the instrument panel creates an optical highlight.
The three-spoke multifunction steering wheel features buttons and knurl wheels following Skoda's new operating concept. The reduced and clearly structured centre console has a small control lever for gear selection.
The Skoda VISION IN is the first vehicle to be based on the new localised sub-compact platform of the MQB A0 IN modular transverse matrix, which also forms the inter-brand basis of various Skoda and Volkswagen models.
In developing the model, the Czech manufacturer has explicitly focused on meeting the wishes and requirements of customers in the Indian market.
The production of the car is likely to begin towards the end of next year and when launched, it would take on other compact SUVs in India like Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport.
