Now, if we take a look at the company past strategy, Skoda has mostly used this format of naming - words starting with K and ending with Q - only for its SUV and crossover models. Case in point, the Skoda Kodiaq, Karoq, and Kamiq. So, one of these names could be used for the production version of the upcoming SUV, which will be based on the company's new MQB A0 IN platform. It's also possible that the company might end up not using most of these names, on the flip side, we also cannot disregard the possibility that Skoda might be planning to introduce more new SUVs as part of its product offensive for India. A subcompact SUV to rival the likes of the Hyundai Venue and Kia Sonet doesn't seem so farfetched, does it? But even if that becomes a reality, it won't happen anytime soon.

While the Karoq comes with the 7-speed DSG automatic transmission as standard, the new SUV might additionally also get a manual gearbox to keep the pricing competitive.
