Skoda has revealed interior sketches of its upcoming Vision RS concept car, thought to give an early hint at the next-generation Rapid hatchback.
Last week, the Czech brand showed the exterior of the car and has now revealed futuristic sketches of the inside.
The centre console is a “space-frame design with integrated shift-by-wire operation of the DSG” made entirely from carbon. Carbon is also used for door panels, seats and decorate elements.
Skoda has revealed a video (below) that shows the process of designing the interior.
At 4356mm long, 1810mm wide and 1431mm tall, the Vision RS is longer, narrower and lower than the current Rapid Spaceback and signposts what that model's indirect hatchback replacement will look like on its arrival in early 2019. However, it won’t be called Rapid, and will instead get a new nomenclature. The liftback version of the current Rapid will not continue in the new generation.
Sales and marketing boss Alain Favey previously confirmed to Autocar that the upcoming Rapid will have “completely new technology, completely new styling”.
