Design sketches show off exterior of Skoda concept study for India

By CARSIFU | 10 January 2020

NEW DELHI: Two design sketches gave a first impression of the exterior of the new Škoda Vision IN. The 4.26-metre-long concept study is a forerunner of a compact SUV designed especially for the Indian market, the production of which will start in 2020.

The Vision IN will make its first public appearance at the Feb 5-12 Auto Expo 2020 here.

The first design sketch shows the front of the visually compelling SUV concept study. In addition to a wide bonnet, a large Škoda grille with solid ribs shapes the visual impression. The upper, very flat units of the split headlights progress directly to the grille. Beneath is a robustly designed front apron with large side air intakes and a massive front spoiler made of aluminium.

The second sketch illustrates a clearly structured, distinctive rear with sharply contoured, three-dimensional rear lights; an additional horizontal light strip connects the reflectors.


Illuminated Škoda lettering is prominently positioned in the centre of the rear; an aluminium diffuser is integrated into the rear apron underneath.

As part of the India 2.0 project, Škoda is leading the activities of the Volkswagen Group brands on the Indian sub-continent.

Several cross-brand Škoda and Volkswagen models will be created based on the MQB A0 IN variant of the Modular Transverse Matrix, which the Czech car maker is developing with a focus on India and Indian customers.

The new localised sub-compact platform is being showcased for the first time in the Vision IN.
