Skoda is expected to launch the Kodiaq by the end of 2017. It will be the company's first SUV in India following the discontinuation of the Yeti in May 2017. The Karoq will be positioned below the Kodiaq. While, the Kodiaq will compete with the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour, the Karoq, which will be placed a segment below, can be expected to take on the recently launched Jeep Compass.

The Karoq is based on Volkswagen's MQB platform. It borrows styling cues from the Kodiaq, which comprises of a large trapezoidal grille with slim headlamp clusters and separate fog lamps placed below them. The rear features a sculpted tail gate with angular tail lamps.

It would be very interesting for a buyer like me if this Karoq would be launched and pitted against the JEEP Compass.

Skoda can see how a good product at right pricing can do for a relatively unknown brand in a India. For themselves, they're already established and only need to get pricing and customer satisfaction right (read, reliable everything).
