Skoda Karoq Latest Updates

Skoda Auto India has confirmed that the Karoq will arrive in India by mid-2020. It will initally be brought in as a CBU unit as it allows for 2500 cars per year without any homologation. Skoda does plan to localise manufacturing for the Karoq by 2021. The Karoq looks like a younger Kodiaq with similar styling elements. The SUV is right up there with its competition when it comes to size. The carmaker has also confirmed a variety of powertrain options for the India-spec Karoq. However, they will be petrol-only BS6 compliant motors. It is likely to get the 1.5-litre TSI petrol engine that makes 150PS and 250Nm of torque that is expected to be mated to manual and automatic transmissions.

Rivals for the Karoq include the Jeep Compass, and the MG Hector in India. The SUV in India is expected to come in at a price between Rs 20 lakh and Rs 25 lakh (ex-showroom India).

  • Outside India, the Karoq is available with two diesel engines - 1.6-litre and 2.0-litre - and 2 petrol engines - 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI. Skoda hasn't disclosed its petrol version for Indian spec. However, we are expecting Skoda to opt for the 2.0-litre TDi engine for India with 150PS on tap. That said, Skoda could also opt for the lower-spec 1.6 TDi just to ensure that the Karoq isn't as powerful as the big Kodiaq. Transmission options globally include a 6-speed manual and the slick-shifting DSG. For more clarification, we would suggest you to wait for its launch in India.
