Skoda Karoq was recently showcased at 2020 Auto Expo and scheduled to launch later in March 2020.

Although, we also expect a 7-speed manual.
Skoda Karoq features Panoramic Sunroof, a virtual cockpit along with 9 airbags. The Skoda Karoq will rival against Volkswagen T-Roc and Jeep compass. The Skoda Karoq is expected to be priced from 18 lakhs.

Skoda Auto India’s bestseller Skoda Rapid is being offered with 1.0 Litre TSI (Turbocharged Stratified Injection) Engine. The Sporty variant will be based on the Top of the line Style variant and will feature the 1.0 L TSI which we have seen earlier with the Polo and Vento. The BS6 compliant 1.0 Litre TSI petrol motor will produce 115PS and 200 Nm of peak torque and mated to a six-speed manual and six-speed Torque converter automatic transmission.
Mr. Zac Hollis, Brand Director – ŠKODA AUTO India, said: “Our SUV model range caters to a growing class of discerning customers with the taste for luxury as well as the right ‘value for money’ proposition. While retaining its strong family characteristics, the much-anticipated KAROQ will continue to drive ŠKODA AUTO’s success in India.”
