Skoda Karoq, Rapid 1.0 TSI bookings open

Skoda Auto India has opened the order books for its upcoming Karoq SUV as well as the BS-VI compliant Rapid. Both these models were on display at the 2020 Auto Expo (Indian debut of the Karoq).

The bookings can either be made online or at Skoda dealerships across the country, against a refundable amount of Rs 50,000.

Pre-booked units of the Rapid 1.0 TSI will be handed over to customers starting 14th April, whereas the Karoq's deliveries will start from 6th May 2020.

A launch date for both cars is yet to be announced.

Like the recently-launched VW Vento, the Rapid will also ditch all its old engine options (1.5-litre diesel and 1.6-litre petrol units) for the brand's 1.0-litre TSI petrol motor (good for 108bhp & 175Nm).
