According to a media report, Skoda is planning to launch the Karoq, Superb facelift, and the Rapid 1.0-litre TSI on May 26, 2020.

The Karoq was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. The SUV will be positioned below the Kodiaq in Skoda’s line-up. It will be imported as a completely built unit (CBU). It is expected to be powered by a 1.5-litre, turbo petrol engine mated with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

The Superb facelift features minor cosmetic changes like a revised chrome grille and LED headlamps, redesigned tail lights and new bumpers with chrome inserts. The car gets Skoda lettering on the boot lid instead of the circular logo. It will be offered with a BS6 compliant, 2.0-litre, turbocharged petrol engine paired with a 7-speed DSG gearbox.

The Rapid will be available with a 1.0-litre, turbocharged petrol engine producing 108 BHP and 175 Nm. At launch, the car is likely to come with a 6-speed manual transmission, while a 6-speed automatic could be introduced at a later date.
