Skoda’s Vision RS Hot Hatch Concept Looks Slick Inside Too

Offense sells tickets, they say in (American) football, but defense wins games. You extend that sentiment to automotive design as well – only replace “offense” with “exterior,” and “defense” with “interior.”

Skoda, for one, knows that the design of its vehicles’ interiors are as important as their exterior appearance. Maybe even more so, given that it’s the part that comes in most direct contact with the driver/customer. So it’s clearly investing as much time and effort on its latest concept‘s cabin as it is on its outward shape. And it’s provided this glimpse to show just that.

The image and video preview us what the interior of its Vision RS concept will look like. The show car is designed to preview both a new hatchback (ostensibly to replace the current Rapid) and all its forthcoming RS performance models in one racy concept, set to debut at the Paris show next month.

As you can see, the interior design adopts wide expansive forms and accents of red and white to contrast with the black and carbon. The bucket seats look well bolstered, the steering wheel (complete with red center mark at the top) beefy and grippy, and loops for door handles. There’s a big wide infotainment screen protruding from the dashboard, which interacts with the digital instrument cluster. It’s all crafted from environmentally friendly materials, with vegan Alcantara, recycled polyester carbon trim, and specially cut crystal from Czech glass manufacturer Lasvit.

In short, it looks like just the right environment from which to summon the performance capabilities of the Czech automaker’s sportiest offerings, and we’re looking forward to seeing the complete package once it’s fully revealed.
