Skoda Karoq has been on the list of new car launches for the manufacturer for quite some time now. BS6 Skodas were supposed to launch in March but the fact that the coronavirus lockdown has thrown plans off track for nearly all of the global population is not really news anymore. The original launch plan for the Karoq has had to be updated as well and now it will launch after 17 May when the nationwide lockdown is expected to lift. It will be a digital launch and bookings have been open for Rs 50,000.
2020 Skoda Karoq will retail in India through the CBU (completely built-up) route and will only sell in one fully-loaded variant like Volkswagen T-Roc. It’ll have six colour options – Candy White, Magnetic Brown, Lava Blue, Magic Black, Brilliant Silver and Quartz Grey.
