Skoda Vision IN is the first vehicle to be based on the latest localised sub-compact platform of the MQB A0 IN modular transverse matrix, which also forms the inter-band basis of many Skoda and Volkswagen variants.
Speaking about the interior, the compact SUV of Skoda is expected to have a wide dashboard arranged on several levels. The colour orange is extensively used throughout the interior of the vehicle.
Skoda Vision IN will sport three-spoke multifunction steering wheel that would feature buttons and knurl wheels. The reduced and neatly structured centre console has a small control lever for gear selection.
The production of Skoda Vision IN is expected to commence towards the end of 2020 and once launched, it is expected to compete with other SUVs in India, including Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Tata Nexon and Ford Ecosport.
