The upcoming 2021 Skoda Vision IN is the latest company’s concept. It is an SUV that should be released in the first quarter of 2021. This model features plenty of interesting illuminated elements. Moreover, crystalline details are also visible at first glance. The interior will get a fully digital instrument cluster with a large touchscreen.
The exterior wears a lot of muscles, and its Vision IN will be the first vehicle to ride on the MQB-A0-IN platform. We don’t know if the Vision IN name will remain once this SUV goes on sales. Lastly, we can expect two engine options but don’t expect a lot of power from these two units.
2021 Vision IN Concept Wears a Promising Design
One of the highlights is a twin-rib grille pattern with an illuminated logo. Simply, the first time you look at the 2021 Skoda Vision IN, this is the first thing that you will notice. Besides that, LED headlights, roof rails, and LED taillights are all available as standard. The illuminated crystalline elements on the grille are looking fantastic. The Vision IN SUV looks muscular and extremely modern. We like the LED DRLs below the headlights and the high-mounted fog lamps as well. Similar styling cues can be found on the Skoda Karoq model.
To the sides, rearview mirrors are also available with LED lamps. The very same bulbs are turning into turn indicators. In the back, taillamps are also very similar to the ones on the Karoq model. Clearly, we are looking at the company’s new design language, and we are impressed. The concept comes with a single LED strip that runs across the full width of the tailgate. We are not sure if the production model will wear the same styling cue.
Very Modern Interior
We don’t know that much about interior design. The all-new 2021 Skoda Vision IN will surely look very modern and stylish on the inside. The cabin will feature plenty of chrome trims, including the “SOS” button. This also indicates that the Vision IN SUV will have on-board telematics. Thanks to that, Skoda will offer the very first connected car in India.
The steering wheel hosts Skoda lettering instead of the traditional emblem. A large digital instrument cluster is perhaps the highlight of the interior. Skoda tried its best to deliver a virtual cockpit with a floating touchscreen. You can see the same display on the new Skoda Octavia.
Engine Department Might Disappoint You
Under the hood, brand-new 2021 Skoda Vision IN will offer a 1.0-liter petrol engine. The second engine option should be a 1.5-liter TSI engine, but this engine is not certain at the moment. The first unit will provide around 115 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. The optional 1.5-liter output could produce up to 147 hp.
Moreover, we can expect a 6-speed manual transmission to be the standard on the base trim level. However, a DSG gearbox will be optional and standard on the upper trim levels. Unfortunately, we don’t know the fuel economy ratings at the moment. Skoda will release full specs closer to the release date.
2021 Skoda Vision IN Price and Release Date
Undoubtedly, the concept will share a lot of components with the production model. However, the number of shared elements will determine the price of the new 2021 Skoda Vision IN. This SUV will look to rival Kia Seltos and the new Hyundai Creta on the Asian markets.
Interestingly, Skoda will release its newest model in India before Europe. The ultimate goal is to reach American soil. The price will start at $15,000 for the base model, and sales will begin at the beginning of 2021.
