The Skoda Vision IN Crossover version is not far from being launched on the market.
Skoda’s response to the enormously popular Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta is a crossover similar in size. It comes mainly from the Europe-specific Kamiq. In Skoda India, leading the VW Group’s R&D operations in the countries, the modular MQB A0 IN platform has been intensively localised.
A number of vehicles from both brands are supported. The first products of this architecture are VW Taigun and the manufacturing version of Vision IN. Although the test mules have been camouflaged, the key Skoda design language can be clearly identified with an immediately recognisable grill. In addition, a simple bumper. The Indian SUV has two-part headlamp design but the upper element is larger in comparison with the Kamiq. The crossover features several design elements from India, including exclusive exterior colours and interior trims for local tastes.
At a glance
When we talk about the interior, the spy shots give us a quick look at the dashboard of the prototype. While under the cloak are hidden the manufacturing panels, we can create a stand-alone touch screen display over the centre console. The overall arrangement is consistent with the concept, inspired by the Kamiq in Europe. Skoda aims to position Vision IN as a premium product, and therefore we hope that all the bells and whistles will come with this product. Just like Kamiq would give the Skoda SUV an edge over their rivals, a colour configurable TFT instrument console is. Certainly, the car offers such features such as:
- Automatic climate control
- Cutting-edge connection features
- A variety of airbags and so forth, including ABS, EBD, alloy wheels and LED headlamps.
A 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine of 150 hp will power the new Skoda Vision IN SUV for India. The automatic transmission options both manual and DSG are expected to be available. The crossover can accelerate in less than 9 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. In order to reach an aggressive starting price point, Skoda could also offer the smaller 1.0-liter turbo petroleum engine on the entry-level. The launch of the Skoda Vision IN SUV in 2021 is scheduled, and things are progressing according to the timetable.
