Skoda India released a teaser video to announce the launch date for its upcoming compact SUV - Skoda Karoq. The SUV is slated to go on sale in India on May 26, alongside the Skoda Rapid 1.0 and the Superb facelift, and all 3 cars will be launched digitally. The Karoq is the spiritual successor to the Skoda Yeti, and it has been on sale in the global markets for a few years now and India is finally set to get it. Like the Volkswagen T-Roc, which was launched earlier this year, the Skoda Karoq too will come as a CBU model, and it will only be offered in one, top-of-the-line variant, with all the bells and whistles.

The Skoda Karoq will come as part of the 2,500 units that carmakers are allowed to import without homologation so we expect it to be sold in limited numbers. However, that will allow the carmaker to price it more attractively, possibly around ₹ 20 lakh (ex-showroom, India). Built on the versatile MQB platform, the Skoda Karoq was will be powered by a 1.5-litre TSI turbo petrol engine tuned to make 148 bhp and 250 Nm of peak torque. The engine will come mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox as standard. We drove the Skoda Karoq in May last year and have already told you a fair deal about it.
