Skoda to Release a Low-Cost Variant of the Kliq

Skoda is preparing to launch its new SUV, which will be produced in India.

Journalists have found documents for the registration of the Kliq brand in the Ministry of Commerce and Industry of India. Most likely, it is about Skoda’s new SUV. Besides, this model will become the cheapest SUV of the company.

The name itself confirms that the new model will be an SUV. Traditionally, the company names SUVs so that the first letter in the name is a “K” and the last is a “Q”. This name also conveys the idea of the “digital” concept. This SUV was previously presented as the Vision IN concept.

Finally, Skoda has already confirmed that the company is working on a project, which will be produced in India. Therefore, it makes sense to register the name there. However, Skoda also plans to sell this model outside of India. The new car will be based the MQB-A0 platform, which was used for the low-cost Volkswagen Nivus.

According to unconfirmed information, the Kliq will be equipped with TSI petrol engines for 110 hp and 150 hp. The less powerful engine will be paired with a six-speed transmission (manual or automatic). The second one will come with a seven-speed automatic gearbox.
