Upcoming Skoda SUV: What to Expect

Skoda Auto India's success story continues as it gears up for expansion with an upcoming addition to its lineup. The Czech automaker is rumoured to be in the works of crafting a fresh addition to its fleet - a subcompact SUV. This move aligns with Skoda's strategic vision for the next phase of its India 2.0 Initiative.

With a focus on the thriving sub-four-metre SUV market and a more price-conscious approach, the new SUV is set to resonate with a broader audience, offering versatility in a more compact package.

Let’s see what we can expect from the ‘Upcoming Skoda Compact SUV’:

Scaled-Down Version of MQB A0 IN Platform

The new sub-4 meter SUV will use a smaller version of the MQB A0 IN platform. This platform is known for its flexibility and proven effectiveness. In addition, it also has been used in other Skoda models like the Slavia and Kushaq. For that reason, the design of the upcoming SUV is expected to look similar to other Skoda cars. Since this platform has already been successful in achieving high levels of localization, Skoda feels confident using it for this SUV.

Skoda Kushaq-Like Exterior Design

The upcoming vehicle is likely to be a smaller version of the Kushaq. So, it is obvious that it will provide elements like the classic Skoda grille and sharp headlights. Overall, it will boast a stylish and premium appearance on the outside, with plenty of cool features.

Premium Interior with Advanced Tech

Like other Skoda cars, the interior of the upcoming SUV will be premium too. It is likely to feature a large 10-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. Other noteworthy equipment could include automatic climate control, ventilated seats, and an electric sunroof. Plus, you can expect nice touches like leatherette seats for a classy feel.

Turbocharged Petrol Engine

Skoda’s new four-wheeler is expected to come equipped with just one engine choice. It will be a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, the same one found in the Kushaq. However, it cannot be said that it will be tuned the same way, though. As for the transmission, you will have the option to choose between a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic gearbox.

Launch Date, Price and Rivals in India

The brand is getting ready to release the new SUV in India around late 2024 or early 2025. The upcoming model will use a lot of parts made locally and take advantage of tax breaks for small vehicles under four meters long. This will help them offer the vehicle at a good price. Talking about its rivals, the car will jump into fierce competition with popular SUVs like the Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, and the Kia Sonet. Let the battle for the best subcompact SUV begin!
