Upcoming Skoda Cars in India


Perhaps the most awaited car on our list of the upcoming Skoda cars in India is the Kodiaq SUV. It is a seven seater SUV that will rival the likes of the Hyundai Santa Fe in India. Other rivals will also include the new Fortuner and Endeavour. A 2.0 L Diesel will be the mainstay of the Kodiaq’s engine lineup. Skoda will launch the SUV in India around the 2017 festive season.


Expected Launch DateDiwali 2017
Estimated PriceRs 25-30 lakh
Engine Options2.0 L Diesel

Octavia RS

The Octavia RS is all set to make a comeback in India! Unlike the previous Octavia RS, which was powered by the same 1.8-litre engine used in the regular 1.8-litre variant, the new Octavia vRS will employ a new four-cylinder 2.0-litre petrol unit. The upcoming Octavia variant is based on the facelift that was unveiled recently. We’re expecting the Skoda Octavia RS India launch to take place in the second half of 2017.

Skoda Karoq (Yeti Replacement)

Rounding off the list of upcoming Skoda Cars in India is the Karoq, which will replace the Yeti. Skoda will officially unveil the upcoming Karoq SUV in May. In India, the Yeti never really gained much popularity thanks to relatively smaller dimensions and a high price tag. However, if Skoda decides to bring the Karoq to India, it might consider localising production, which will help reduce costs. If and when the Karoq aka next generation Yeti comes to India, it will slot in below the Kodiaq SUV.
