Skoda's upcoming plans: Kodiaq, Rapid Monte Carlo and Octavia RS launch soon

Big on space and value, without feeling cheap, it's been Skoda's best-seller since its 1996 launch, and a backbone of its fleet presence too. These vehicles will most likely be delivered to buyers from September.

Skoda is also going to launch the Rapid Monte Carlo in India with the launch set to happen in the upcoming days.

Now, this is commonly seen in all new generation Skoda cars like the Superb and the Octavia.

At its core, the line-up has hardly changed, with 113bhp 1.6-litre and 148bhp 2.0-litre diesels, and equivalent petrol engines notable because they offer near-identical Carbon dioxide emissions.

The Octavia RS will feature new front end with wider grille and air intakes and four full-LED headlight units. The 7-seater Skoda Kodiaq SUV will take on the market leaders in the segment including Ford Endeavour, Toyota Fortuner and even the Volkswagen Tiguan.

Mechanically, the Rapid Monte Carlo will remain the same and continue with the 1.5-litre diesel unit and 1.6-litre MPI petrol motor as well.

The 2-1 win also made it the 66th consecutive match that Real Madrid have scored in, with 181 goals scored in that fantastic run. Meanwhile, Bale said he has been ignoring the transfer speculation and has received no word from Real Madrid about his future.

Meanwhile, the Rapid Monte Carlo, which is meant as homage to racing legacy of Skoda, will come with changes to certain design elements of regular version like black grille, alloy wheels, interiors, boot lid spoiler, side-view mirrors, and flared side skirts to make it look sportier.

Czech vehicle manufacturer, Skoda is all set to reveal its first seven seater SUV Kodiaq in India.The limited edition market is already on sale in the global market.

The 2017 Skoda Octavia RS, previously retailed as "Octavia vRS", is the third-gen facelift avatar of the famous "vRS" badge Octavia that had left India drooling ever since the first-gen model.

These three launches will add a bit more variety to Skoda India's line-up that now doesn't even feature a SUV. The 2-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine will produce 177 bhp and peak torque of 320 Nm.

The new Skoda also comes with a mix of both petrol and diesel engines.
