We had earlier reported that Skoda will be launching its mid-size SUV, the Karoq, in India by mid-2020. Well, the Czech carmaker has unveiled the SUV at the ongoing auto expo and will launch it in April this year.

The Karoq comes with only a BS6-compliant 1.5-litre TSi petrol engine that makes 150PS of power and 250Nm of torque. This unit comes mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch option. As Skoda Auto Volkswagen India has no plans to sell diesel vehicles in the BS6 era, the Karoq will be a petrol-only product in our country like all its other offerings.
