Czech car manufacturer Skoda has a reputation of being a premium brand with superior and luxurious models. With just under 20 years of experience under their belt, Skoda already has a lot on offer in the Indian market and is gearing up to release a handful of new cars in the coming months. What can you expect from Skoda in the near future? Here are the upcoming Skoda cars in India in 2021-22.
|Skoda Rapid 2021||Rs. 10.00 Lakh|
|Skoda Kodiaq 2022||Rs. 33.00 Lakh|
|Skoda Fabia 2022||Rs. 7.00 Lakh|
|Expected Launch||10 October 2021|
|Transmission||6-Speed Manual, 7-Speed DSG|
Skoda has mostly been recognized as a premium sedan manufacturer and the Rapid 2021 is a clear example of why. While the Rapid 2021 has already been released outside India, it is set to enter the country in October. Although not much has been discussed about the upcoming premium sedan, the Rapid 2021 has gained a lot of attention. The upgraded Rapid will now come with a BSVI-compliant 1.0L Turbocharged-petrol engine that is expected to generate 115Ps of power and 200Nm of torque which is the same kind of engine that is expected to feature on the Kamiq and Vision IN later this year. Similar to the Vision IN, the Rapid 2021 will come with either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox to choose from. Given that Skoda and Volkswagen are teaming up to introduce CNG variants of their popular cars, Skoda could also introduce a CNG variant of the Rapid 2021 in the future.
|Expected Launch||15 January 2022|
|Transmission||7-Speed DSG Automatic|
The Skoda Kodiaq 2022 was set to launch in December of 2021 but the company has pushed back the launch date to January of 2022. When Skoda first released the Kodiaq, it gained a lot of attention and now the facelifted variant is gathering a lot of excitement as well. The Kodiaq 2022 retains the design found on the previous iteration with a few subtle changes. The body now comes with sharper lines and a new sleeker look to it. The front grille, headlamps, and rear of the car are still the same while the interior of the car comes with some upgrades to the instrument cluster and infotainment system. Powering the new Kodiaq 2022 will be a 2.0L Turbo-petrol engine that is expected to generate 190Ps of power and 320Nm of torque. The 7-seater SUV will be mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission system that will also come with All-Wheel-Drive. Some of the features of the Kodiaq 2022 will be a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive LED headlamps, adjustable and ventilated front seats, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, and a 360-degree camera. In terms of safety, the Kodiaq 2022 is expected to feature 9 airbags, ABS with EBD, and parking assistance.
|Expected Launch||15 December 2022|
|Engine||1.0L MPI, 1.0L Turbo-Petrol, 1.5L Turbo-Petrol|
|Transmission||5-Speed Manual, 6-Speed Manual, 7-Speed DSG|
Although most people would think that the Skoda Fabia 2022 is a brand new car being launched in India, it is actually the 4th-generation hatchback from the manufacturer. Skoda did launch the 2nd-generation Fabia in India but decidedly skipped out on the 3rd-gen model. The new Fabia 2022 is quite a bit larger than the previous iteration and also comes with new engine/transmission options. Powering the upcoming Fabia 2022 will either be a 1.0L MPI engine that generates 65 or 80 Ps of power and 93Nm of torque, a 1.0L Turbo-petrol engine in 2 tunes – 95Ps/175Nm or 110Ps/200Nm, or a 1.5L Turbo-petrol unit that produces 150Ps of power and 250Nm of torque. In the transmission department, the MPI engine will be paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox while the 1.0L Turbo-petrol engine will get a 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, and a 7-speed DSG option. The large 1.5L engine will be mated to a 7-speed DSG gearbox only. In terms of looks, the new Fabia 2022 will get sharper lines and an overall sportier exterior. There will also be new LED headlamps, wraparound LED taillights, a mesh air intake grille, and new alloy wheels. Inside, the Fabia 2022 will also come with some major upgrades including a 2-spoke steering wheel, a 9.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster, automatic air-conditioning, a panoramic sunroof, smartphone charging sockets, gesture control, ambient lighting, and a heated steering wheel. There are also some new safety features included on the Fabia 2022 such as blind-spot detection, 9 airbags, adaptive cruise control, travel assist, parking sensors, a parking camera, lane assist, brake assist, and park assist.
