In the production model, the interior of Skoda Vision IN will get more premium features than rivals. So, there are chances that Skoda could use some soft-touch materials on dashboard and door pads. It will get a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay connectivity. The smartlink+ smartphone technology will also be provided by Skoda. Instead of conventional dials for the instrument cluster, the higher variants of the Vision IN will get a completely customized digital virtual cockpit.
