While retaining its strong family characteristics, the much-anticipated KAROQ will continue to drive ŠKODA AUTO’s success in India. The state of the art 1.0 TSI (Turbocharged Stratified Injection) petrol engine, to be introduced with the ŠKODA RAPID, is central to our BS-6 powertrain and fuel strategy – offering an exceptional power output as well as excellent fuel economy. ŠKODA brand loyalists and auto enthusiasts, from across the nation, now have the opportunity to pre-book our latest offerings and secure a priority status.”
The new ŠKODA KAROQ is an integral part of the Czech marque’s SUV campaign in India.

Introduced in 2011, the RAPID marked ŠKODA AUTO’s foray into the popular C segment, in India, and garnered much appreciation from customers across the nation. It soon proved its mettle as a perfect blend of the brand’s timeless design ideals, superior build quality, and European craftsmanship, all at a competitive price point.
