Guys, the camouflaged vehicles are the real Skoda Kliq (a.k.a. Vision IN) on test. The exposed ones are the EU-spec Skoda Kamiq (CBU import for testing purposes only) which is being used to test various components. It is NOT the Kliq.

The Kliq is a more 'upright' crossover. Refer to the actual patent images in the following articles:

ŠKODA to follow the trend of naming ceremony, followed by the reveal before the launch:

- ŠKODA Vision IN Name Reveal In The First Week Of January '21

- The Vision IN will globally debut in March and launch in mid-2021.

- Could be called KLIQ or KOSMIQ as both are trademarked by the car maker

- Starting price likely to be in sub ₹10 lakhs range, range topping at ₹ 17 lakhs.

More info. on the ŠKODA's SUV:

- Skoda Readies Production Line For New Compact SUV

- 'Specialist technicians' arrive from Europe to make sure that the production line is ready.

- Assures that the model will be at par with the brand's other line-up as far as quality and reliability are concerned

- It will be priced right and will have all the virtues that one can expect from Skoda

- Quality, styling and safety will have the DNA of Skoda.

- This year Skoda is tipped to sell around 11,000 cars and the plan next year is to go to over 30,000 ( ~ 3000+ planned /month for this SUV)

To be honest, I personally feel Skoda Vision sounds a lot better, feels up market and progressive than the names mentioned above. However, Skoda wants all their SUV names to start with a K. Eagerly waiting for this car. The 1.5 TSI with a DSG, sorted handling, chilling AC, good seats and legroom, 6/7 airbags with typical VW build quality is all I need. Wireless Apple CarPlay and digital cockpit would be icing on the cake. Skoda, please give us a 10 year DSG warranty. Id pay for it, given its priced reasonably.

Cheers!

My money is on the name Kosmiq. Sounds good, has a good meaning - distinct. It will go well with the Indian junta. Kliq is too small for a csuv. It might be good name for a smaller vehicle which is a city pounder and easy to drive through crowded roads. The other 2 names Karmiq and Konarq are not very inspiring
Kramiq - maybe loosely referred to Kramig (Swedish) which means huggable. I dont think Skoda will want to call it a huggable car !!!
Konarq - Konar means kind... so again not too sure
Kosmik - this means Cosmic in Swedish
Kliq - i couldnt find much about it

Cheers

I think Konarq may also work. This is a car developed in India and Konarq can also construed as a reference to Konark - top notch masonry / construction. Simply clever?

Although Kosmiq seems to be the most likely candidate. Sounds right.

If you are in the market for a new car in this price range, just wait! Just wait for 6 months and then make an informed decision, it's going to be worth it
I am in the market to buy a mid-size/Compact SUV. Looked at many options - The Kias, Hector, Nexon; but love the design of the Vision IN (Kliq/Kosmiq/Konarq or whatever the brand decides to call it). Many thanks to this forum and especially to you for all the inside scoops.

A few questions:
- what kind of ground clearance do you expect from this car
- Suspension and ride quality - I used to own Duster earlier before being out of the country for 4 years. Duster really spoils you in terms of the ride quality. I have driven the Karoq and found the ride quality to be fairly good too. Do you think the Vision IN will handle equally well. Especially given the Mumbai roads with Craters, ride quality is a big deal (primary reason for me to not go with the Seltos)
- Interior Quality: Skoda did a fantastic job in managing the interior quality of Rapid at a very competitive pricing. How does Vision IN score there as per your friend? Hopefully no cheap/hard plastics on the dashboard

The vision will follow the quality standards which Skoda is famous for, you don't have to worry about any quality issues. It will have the same kind of road manners and ride quality which is found in other skoda cars.

The ground clearance will be around 190mm,which is more than enough for our road conditions. I have mentioned other features as well, you can read about them in the previous threads.

Whilst the render looks like a typical Skoda, I sincerely hope that the reflector strip isn't there on the actual production model. It looks beyond hideous and totally out of place.

All the names start with 'K' and ends with 'Q', inline with Skoda's other SUVs KodiaQ and KaroQ. It would be interesting to know the reason behind choosing these two alphabets for SUV.
