Under the ‘India 2.0 strategy’, the Volkswagen-Skoda group aims to increase its network in the country rapidly. New showrooms have now come up in Bhopal, Gurgaon, Faridabad and Patna.
Skoda’s Upcoming Mid-Size Sedan
The carmaker had earlier teased its upcoming mid-size sedan that will sit above the Rapid and below the Octavia. As per rumours, this sedan will be based on the MQB-A0-IN platform, on which the Kushaq is also based. This mid-size sedan will very likely use the current Volkswagen group’s 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI engine.
Skoda’s Independence Day Campaign
Starting from 15th August 2021 to 15th September 2021, Skoda will run the Independence Day Campaign’. This will entitle the customers to a 15 per cent discount on select parts, a 10% discount on select accessories, a 20% discount on RSA and a free 40 point check-up. The carmaker confirmed that all these offers are applicable across Skoda India’s range of products.
Skoda Planning To Lauch 1.5L-TSI Ambition Variant
Currently, the 1.5-litre engine is only offered with the top-spec Style and GT trim. But now, as per rumours, Skoda might offer the 1.5-litre trim with the mid-spec Ambition trim. And interestingly, rumours also suggest that this trim will get both the 6-speed manual as well as the DSG automatic gearbox. Once launched, this trim will surely offer a great value for money proposition for potential buyers. Skoda Kushaq has created a positive impact in the market, with more customers flocking to showrooms.
