Skoda to focus on India markets

With automobile giants now focusing on the Indian market, more and more companies are launching newer and better models in order to leave their mark on consumers. Now, Skoda seems to be more focused on the Indian market than ever before. The Czech automaker has a couple of moves in its sleeves for the market; it has already announced the launch of its first-ever seven-seater SUV – The Kodiaq and is also coming up with a major update of the Rapid this year. In fact, the company is planning to re-introduce go-fast Octavia – the vRS version – back in India.

Our readers need to know what makes this car so special. Volkswagen’s 2.0-litre TSI turbocharged petrol motor. This international specified model comes with a motor that puts out a whopping 220PS of max power and 350Nm of peak torque. In lay man terms this means 0-to-100kmph time of 6.8 seconds.

The vRS also comes in a diesel option, available with the 2.0-litre TDI motor. The diesel sprints from 0 to 100kmph in 8.1 seconds. Both engines comes with manual or a DSG dual clutch automatic variants, each being six-speed transmissions.
