The first products, for both the Skoda as well Volkswagen brands will start rolling out by 2020-21, starting with a mid-sized SUV based on MQB A0 IN platform. A model campaign, led by SKODA, will follow. The mid-Size SUV will most likely take on the likes of the Hyundai Creta and will be a 5-seater. The group has hinted towards a bias to new generation TSI or turbocharged petrol engines as compared to offering both diesel and petrol engines to begin with. The new SUV will also be shared between both the Volkswagen and the Skoda brand - as is the case with most vehicles across the group.
