Skoda has recently launched the Kodiaq Scout variant at a price tag of INR 34 lakhs (ex-showroom India). The all-new variant of the SUV has been specifically designed for offering better off-road capabilities while getting a position between the L&K and Style variant of the SUV.

Coming to the cosmetic updates, the SUV now features off-road centric equipment which offers it a more muscular look while at the same time offers better performance. The front and rear bumper of the SUV now features plastic cladding while the brand has equipped the Kodiaq Scout with skid plates as well as “Scout” badging on the body panels.

The silver roof rails, as well as, silver brushed ORVMs further enhances its off-road looks while the 18-inch anthracite alloy wheels add to its rugged profile. Coming to the interiors, the SUV now features an all-black cabin with black leather upholstery that offers it a much premium look while other comfort features offered to the SUV includes ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, ventilated front seats, fully digital instrument panel as well as a touchscreen infotainment system compatible with Skoda Connect, Android Auto, and Apple CarPlay.

In terms of mechanical updates, the Kodiaq Scout variant comes with an additional off-road driving mode that tunes the engine and transmission of the SUV and further offers better off-roading performance. The Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) allows the rider to monitor the tyre pressure in case of rugged terrains while the full underbody protection layer protects the hardware in case of the tarmac. The all-new SUV variant also features 9 airbags as standard for extra protection.

Powering the Skoda Kodiaq Scout is the same 2-litre turbo diesel engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 150 HP and a peak torque of 340 Nm. The engine is mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox while the power is offered to all four wheels at once. The customers can avail the Skoda Kodiaq Scout in Lava Blue, Magic Black, Moon White, and Quartz Grey colour options. The recently launched SUV variant competes in the market with the likes of Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner, Isuzu MU-X, Mahindra Alturas G4, VW Tiguan, and the Honda CR-V.

Skoda Kamiq has been officially revealed by the brand. The car is not to be confused with the China-spec Kamiq as that one will stay exclusive to the Chinese market. The international-spec Kamiq comes with a different architecture, a compact footprint and a different set of engines on offer. The model will arrive in India in 2020 and expecting the same to carry similar dimensions is possible due to Creta-rivalling stance. Skoda Kamiq measures 4241mm in length and carries 2651mm of healthy wheelbase. The availability of a bigger wheelbase than Octavia and Karoq confirms that price placement will fall in the Jeep Compass-rivalling segment for sure.

The Kamiq comes with optional LED daytime running lights that double as dynamic indicators on the road. The design lines are matching to the Skoda SUV family while features like 400-litre boot space and extended legroom make Kamiq a compact yet practical option. The engine options include 1.0L petrol (95 HP and 115 HP), 1.5L petrol (150 HP) and 1.6L diesel (115 HP). For India, the engine selection will depend on the placement of the car as putting 1.5L diesel will place the same against Hyundai Creta while the 2.0L engine will increase the overall cost and target the Jeep Compass buyers.

Skoda is presently selling Rapid, Octavia, Superb and Kodiaq in the country. The design lines and front fascia of all these cars feel similar and surprisingly, Skoda Rapid has regained the pace by posting decent sales number almost every month. Superb is a full-length sedan that challenges cars priced double its own tag. After Kodiaq, bringing more SUVs to India will affect the brand value of Skoda and attract more buyers than ever. Kamiq is actually a Hyundai Creta rival while the Karoq will target bigger cars like Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson. Skoda Octavia is a potential rival to the upcoming Honda Civic.

Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo Edition has been launched in India for INR 11.16 lakh. The variant can be had in four different engine-gearbox combinations and the price mentioned here is for the most basic petrol manual setup. Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo is the first car from the brand to feature the special edition name as two years back, the brand went into a legal fight with Monte Carlo apparels and had to rename the same to Edition X in India. It seems like the problem is now solved and the brand can place their Monte Carlo variants parallel to the normal ones. Here is the detailed price list for Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo Edition in India.

Rapid Monte Carlo Price List

  • Rapid 1.5 TDI: INR 12,99,599
  • Rapid 1.5 TDI AT: INR 14,25,999
Above Mentioned Prices Are Ex-Showroom India

The price difference from the regular variants is INR 26,000 for both petrol and diesel engine options, including their automatic variants. The car is available in special Flash Red shade for the Indian market. The chrome elements on the top-spec variants turn black in the Monte Carlo Edition, bringing gloss black into action for additional sporty feel from the variants. Apart from these differences, the car comes with 16-inch Clubber alloy wheel design. The pillars now flaunt Monte Carlo branding while black diffuser and roof finish completes the package.

Speaking about the launch, Mr Zac Hollis, Director – Sales, Service, and Marketing, Skoda India said, “We are glad to re-introduce the Monte Carlo marque in India. The RAPID Monte Carlo offers a compelling combination of the brand’s emotive design, exquisite interiors, leading safety as well as intelligent connectivity features. It is positioned at the upper end of its segment and targets discerning customers who want a premium experience.”

All-New Skoda Scala hatchback is now official, all-set to replace the Rapid hatchback from the concerned markets. The Rapid is available in sedan body-type in India, based on the Volkswagen Vento frame and getting the same engine options. Internationally, Skoda Rapid hatchback is a different car and will now feature the MQB A0 platform under the Skoda Scala name plate. The next-generation compact car from the company is built by taking inspiration from Vision RS concept. The design idea for Scala was first seen at the Paris Motor Show through this concept, bringing quite a lot of changes to the car.

The standard version comes with a decent rear end while optional features include an all-glass window with Skoda lettering on the same. The move is smart for improving brand presence in countries where Skoda is not a household name. The interior update includes optional 10.25-inch virtual cockpit, floating touchscreen infotainment system and soft touch elements. Skoda Scala measures 4362 mm in length and offers 2649 mm in wheelbase. The 467-liter boot space is very impressive for the hatchback use, also being the largest available among other cars in this segment.

Skoda is still retaining the ice scraper and umbrella space in the car. Scala comes with a 1.0L engine, producing 99 HP and 115 HP in two different versions. The 1.5L engine is good for 150 HP. All three versions are petrol powered while diesel 1.6L engine is good for 115 HP. The engines are available with 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual and 7-speed dual clutch gearbox. The sport chassis option will reduce the ride height by 15mm. It even adds driving modes to the car. Standard safety features include autonomous emergency braking and lane keep assist while optional features like rear view camera and adaptive cruise control.

Skoda has officially listed the Superb Sportline for INR 28.99 lakh. The diesel engine for the Sportline variant costs INR 31.49 lakh. Even at the first glance, it is clear that the variant is just a sportier looking but essentially the same luxury sedan that is offered by Skoda. The style is a bit sharper and some of the parts of the exterior have been finished in black, which gives quite a fiery look combined with the red paint job. It can also be had in the White and Grey exterior shade.

On the outside, we can see that the chrome on the car has been replaced with black finishes to give the sedan a sportier look. This is the same style of changes that we saw on the Octavia vRS in the international markets. The grille has been finished in gloss black, and the headlamp inserts also see the new blackened styling. The sporty look of the car is accented by the mirror caps, side skirts, and the boot lid spoiler, all of which follow the same black finishing as the grille. Also adding to the sportiness of the car is the 19-inch alloy wheels, finished in black and grey.

Superb-SL-002

On the inside, the Skoda Superb Sportline follows the sportier styling, getting an all-black interior with red stitching. The seats are sportier and have Alcantara inserts in them. The sports variant of the car includes the aluminum pedals and carbon-fibre inserts on the dashboard as well.

However, all the changes are cosmetic in nature. There are no mechanical differences in the variant when compared to the ones that are already available in the Indian market. The engine and transmission options remain the same, the 1.8-liter TSI petrol engine coupled with a 7-speed DSG or the 2.0-liter TDI diesel engine coupled with the 6-speed DSG. The former produces a maximum power of 178 hp and a peak torque of 250 Nm, while the latter produces a maximum power of 175 hp and a peak torque of 350 Nm.

Skoda Rapid Onyx Edition is now officially available in India from INR 9.75 lakh. The base price for this model is applicable for 1.6L petrol variant with manual gearbox while same with an automatic gearbox costs INR 10.99 lakh. Buyers looking for a diesel engine can get their hands on the Onyx Edition with manual and automatic gearbox for INR 11.58 lakh and INR 12.73 lakh respectively. The shades available under this name are Blue and White, both available with 16-inch clubber alloy wheels and matching black wing mirrors as well as grille finish. The projector headlights (smoked) with LED DRLs are available as standard.

Skoda offers light brown interior finish with beige leatherette seats and Smartlink enabled touchscreen infotainment system on the car. Onyx branding can be found on scuff plates of this typical variant. The rivals for Skoda Rapid remains Honda City, Hyundai Verna, Maruti Ciaz, Toyota Yaris and Volkswagen Vento. As Volkswagen group has already announced the launch of next-generation Vento and Rapid model in 2021, one can safely assume Onyx to be the smartest looking Rapid model on-road for next couple of years. The powerful engine set and tank-like built quality make Skoda a great option for Indian roads.

Rapid comes with a 1598cc, 4-cylinder petrol engine, producing 105PS at 5200 rpm and 153 Nm at 3750 rpm. The engine can either be had with a 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Those looking for real power will prefer the 1498cc, 4-cylinder diesel engine, producing 110PS at 4000 rpm and 250 Nm at 1500 rpm. This one also comes with the same gearbox options as the petrol engine. Not just that, diesel engine returns an astonishing 21.72 kmpl of mileage with the automatic gearbox. All models are sold with a 55-liter fuel tank and 460-liters of boot capacity.

Skoda India has launched a new variant in their lineup of the Superb. This new variant has been named the Superb Corporate Edition, and it is aimed at bringing the sedan at a price for the corporate employees. The electronics and mechanical are the same as the one we see on the Style variant of the Superb, and the price has been brought down to INR 23.49 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

Like the Superb Style, the Superb Corporate Edition draws its power from a 1.8-liter TSI petrol engine that produces a maximum power of 177.5 hp in the 4200-6200 rpm rev range, and a peak torque of 320 Nm in the 1450-3900 rpm rev range. The engine comes with a turbocharger which brings in the increased torque across a wide rev band. However, the transmission on the Superb Corporate Edition is a 6-speed manual unit and if you want an automatic gearbox, you will have to opt for the Superb Style AT variant.

Like the Style variant, the Superb Corporate Edition has features like a multi-functioning steering wheel, projector headlamps, ABS, and multiple airbags. There are electronic stability controls on the car as well, including the traction control system and the anti-slip regulation. For the convenience of the driver, there are reverse parking sensors and a reverse parking camera as well.

The Skoda Superb Corporate Edition has been designed for the employees who are on a budget but want the luxury and space offered in the Superb. The design of the car remains the same, and with its lower price tag, it becomes all the more appealing car to have. The sedan will be preferred by the people who want a chauffeur driven car, wanting the luxury of the rear seats without having to spend unnecessarily on features which will be more driver-centric.

The Skoda Kodiaq GT Coupe is planned for its debut later this year. But, the first shots of the SUV coupe have already been leaked. It is the first ever production SUV Coupe from Skoda Auto, and for now, it will be exclusive only to China. The GT is quite different from the standard Kodiaq, both in looks and performance.

On the exterior, the first thing that you will notice is that the GT sits quite low as compared to the standard model, and also that it has a sloping roof-line, making it look like a traditional coupe. On the front, the lower air intake is also slightly tweaked and the outer ends of the bumper feature new contours for an even more aggressive look.

The rear is where you will notice more differences than anywhere else. The windshield on the rear is more rakish; the roof spoiler is sportier; there is a presence of dual exhaust pipes; the reflector on the back runs along the width of the SUV, and there are completely redesigned tail-lamps. Overall, it is slightly shorter in length and height as compared to the regular Kodiaq, while the wheelbase is the same for both the variants.

Inside, you will notice that the Coupe is a strict five-seater as compared to the seven people seating in the regular Kodiaq. The rest of the interior remains the same, except for the lower headroom for the passengers and a smaller boot space.

Skoda Kodiaq GT CoupeThere are two engine options that are expected from the Kodiaq GT Coupe, a 184 hp 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol and a 217 hp 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol. The 7-Speed Dual Clutch Transmission is expected to be standard on both the engine trims, while there are reports of an optional all-wheel-drive system with the 217 hp 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged engine. If the Coupe ever arrives at the Indian shores, it will feature the same engine as the regular Kodiaq with some tweaks for added performance.

For now, it will only be produced in and for China since the company’s plant in the Czech Republic for the worldwide sales is running at its maximum capacity, and adding another vehicle to the lineup would require them to invest more into the plant.
