Skoda Octavia RS, Rapid Monte Carlo, Kodiaq SUV India launch confirmed

Skoda Octavia RS, Rapid Monte Carlo, Kodiaq SUV India launch confirmed”

Both variations of the engine come with a 6-speed manual transmission. On the other hand, Kodiaq is the flagship SUV of the brand. The four full-LED headlights, as well as the LED side-mounted headlights, are improvements on the previous version.

At its core, the line-up has hardly changed, with 113bhp 1.6-litre and 148bhp 2.0-litre diesels, and equivalent petrol engines notable because they offer near-identical Carbon dioxide emissions. The auto will feature an aggressive looking body kit, blacked-out trim bits and larger alloy wheels. A great all-round package which has hardly changed, save for its distinctive new quad-lamp headlights and some updated technology on board. All UK cars get at least an 8.0-inch touchscreen and a new-generation infotainment setup, with Apple and Android connectivity and intuitive, quick-to-respond pinch and swipe inputs, while data-connected versions offer live weather, traffic and parking information. Safety features will include nine airbags, ESP and a park-assist system.

Before the Octavia RS hits the showrooms, the Rapid Monte Carlo will be launched in the country.

Skoda India will soon start accepting the bookings for the Rapid Monte Carlo edition and prices will be revealed by mid-August.

Though based on the Indian Rapid, the sedan will borrow bits from the global Monte Carlo. The India-spec auto will get a red exterior and an all-black interior, grille and wing mirrors, along with 16-inch alloy wheels and a tailgate spoiler, also in black. Not just this, Skoda has lined up two more launches in India this year - Rapid Monte Carlo and the Kodiaq.

Under the bonnet, the Rapid is expected to carry forward the same 110hp 1.5-litre engine that is also found on the Ameo.

The new Skoda gets a 2.0-litre TSI motor, which can produce 230bhp of power roll out a top torque of 350Nm.

In addition to the three launches, Skoda, in a bid to make its aftersales and service process more transparent, has announced new service initiatives that can be used by customers via the new MySkoda app.
