The upcoming Skoda Vision IN's patent images have surfaced the internet. The new drawing gives a clear picture of how the car would look like when it goes on sale next year.
The Czech automaker, Skoda showcased the Vision IN concept at the Auto Expo 2020. The production-spec Vision IN is expected to hit the Indian shores by the first half of next year. Once launched, it’ll compete with the likes of Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and Nissan Kicks. However, recently, we’ve got our hands on the patent images of the Vision IN in its production-ready avatar. The leaked patent drawings showcase how the exterior of the upcoming Vision IN will look like. The upcoming SUV will be based on the company’s MQB AO IN platform. The new leaked images suggest that the production-spec Vision IN will look quite similar to that of the concept model. Upfront, it gets conventional Skoda grille with vertical slats. Illumination duties will be done by projector headlamps along with trapezoidal fog lamps employed just below the headlamp cluster. Moreover, the dual-tone bumper also features a chunky faux skid plate. The rear profile of the SUV gets L-shaped LED taillights along with Skoda lettering on the boot lid.

There’s also a light bar that extends across the width of the car. The SUV gets blacked-out cladding around the wheel arches and the door sills. The patent images also reveal that the all-new Skoda Vision IN will also feature a panoramic sunroof along with two-tone alloy wheels. The production-spec Skoda Vision IN will have a different name. In terms of dimensions, the Skoda Vision IN concept showcased early this year was 4,256 mm long and had a wheelbase of 2,671 mm. It had 19-inch alloy wheels and featured a 1.5-litre four-cylinder, TSI EVO turbocharged gasoline engine that produces 150 PS of peak power and 250 Nm of peak torque.

The production-spec model will have similar dimensions and will roll on 17-inch alloy wheels. Due to the poor road condition of India, no carmaker across the country offers a premium B-SUV with 18-inch or even bigger alloy wheels. Along with the 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine, the production-spec Vision IN will also be propelled by a 1.0-litre turbocharged, 3-pot petrol motor that produces power and torque outputs of 110 PS and 175 Nm, respectively. Both the engine options will come paired to a 6-speed MT as standard. However, a 7-speed DCT gearbox is expected to be offered as an option.
