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).

Q. Is it has automatic transmission?? What is the seating capacity - Karoq?
  • Skoda Karoq would be a 5-seater SUV. In addition to the 1.5-litre TSI (150PS) petrol engine with a 7-speed DSG that powers the standard Karoq, the Karoq Scout will also get a 2.0-litre diesel engine in two states of tune. The 2.0-litre diesel engine will produce 150PS with a 6-speed MT and a 7-speed DSG in the lower state of tune. In the higher tune, it will churn out 190PS of maximum power with a 7-speed DSG gearbox. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
Q. Is Karoq expected to be sold in a Petrol variant in 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. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
Q. Can we expect expect launch of Skoda Karoq 2.0-litre diesel auto transmission in Dec 2018? i wanted to buy VW Tiguan but willing to wait to see Karoq and decide after that.
  • Skoda has revealed that it will showcase a sportier version of its Karoq SUV at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Called the Karoq Sportline, it features a 2.0-litre TSI engine that puts out 190PS of power, making it the most powerful petrol variant of the Karoq when it goes on sale in various global markets later this year. The 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine in the Karoq is the same unit that powers the Octavia RS in India. However, the engine on the sedan is tuned to produce a maximum power 230PS and is paired to a 6-speed DSG automatic. The Czech-based carmaker is yet to reveal the transmission options for the Karoq Sportline. While the Sportline will only be available with a petrol engine, the standard Karoq can be had with a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine which produces as much power as the 2.0-litre TSI (190PS). This version is available with a 4x4 setup. Skoda also offers this engine with an output of 150PS as well. Other than these engines, the Karoq is also available with a host of other motors. In the UK, it gets a 1.0-litre TSI engine with an output of 115PS. There’s a bigger 1.5-litre TSI engine as well that makes 150PS of maximum power. Apart from the 2.0-litre TDI engine that’s available in two states of tune, Skoda also offers a 1.6-litre TDI engine with an output of 115PS. In India, we expect Skoda to offer the Karoq with the 2.0-litre diesel engine. It remains to be seen if the Czech carmaker also offers it with a petrol unit. However, we don’t expect the Sportline to make its way to our market when Karoq is launched. The Karoq is a mid-size SUV that will rival the Hyundai Tucson upon its India launch in 2019. The Volkswagen Tiguan is a very well packaged SUV with an extensive equipment list and superb driving dynamics. Yes, it isn’t an SUV in the traditional sense of the word but then again it isn’t gunning the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and the Ford Endeavour anyway. Volkswagen has set its sights higher and is pitting the Tiguan against entry-level luxury models such as the BMW X1, Audi Q3 and the Mercedes-Benz GLA. : By Zigwheels | 1 year ago
