Skoda Rapid Monte Carlo re-launched in India


It seems like Skoda India has sorted out the differences with the Ludhiana-based garment company ‘Monte Carlo Fashions’. The Rapid Monte Carlo was originally launched in India on August 2017, and was later re-named to Edition X after an alleged trademark infringement.

Skoda has now re-launched the Rapid Monte Carlo in India, with prices starting at Rs 11,15,599 ex-showroom, Pan India.

Variant Petrol Diesel
Rapid Monte Carlo MT Rs 11,15,599 Rs 12,99,599
Rapid Monte Carlo AT Rs 12,35,599 Rs 14,25,599

As always, the visual treatment on the Monte Carlo’s exterior is tasteful and sexy. It gets a black grille, gloss black ORVMs, gloss black roof, Monte Carlo badge on the B-pillars, black boot lid spoiler, black diffuser, and 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels. Also included are projector headlamps with LED DRLs, and front & rear fog lamps.


As for the interiors, there are piano black accents, Monte Carlo upholstery with red contrast stitching, auto AC, 6.5-inch infotainment system with SmartLink, and stainless steel pedals. Dual front airbags and ABS are standard. The automatic variants get Hill Hold Control and ESC. Rain-sensing wipers are included as well.


No changes under the hood. The petrol engine is a 1.6-litre (1,598 cc) 4-cylinder naturally aspirated unit, producing 77 kW (103 bhp) between 5,200 – 5,250 rpm and 153 Nm of torque between 3,750 – 3,800 rpm. A 5-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic transmission sends power to the front wheels.

On the diesel side, a 1.5-litre (1,498 cc) 4-cylinder TDI is employed, which offers 81 kW (109 bhp) at 4,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque between 1,500 – 2,500 rpm. Transmission is a 5-speed manual or a 7-speed DSG automatic, sending power to the front wheels.
