The Skoda Monte Carlo has made the Indian debut at an ex-showroom price of INR 10,75,000. The Monte Carlo follows Skoda’s claim of ‘One Nation. One Price’ and is inspired from Skoda‘s long heritage of motorsports. The Monte Carlo will be available in two select dual- colour options: Flash Red with black roof and Candy White with black roof.
“The new Monte Carlo is an integral part of our model offensive strategy in India. The Monte Carlo offers a compelling combination of the brand’s emotional design, exquisite interiors, and host of convenience features, leading safety as well as intelligent connectivity features. The Monte Carlo is positioned at the top end of the segment and is targeted at the discerning customer who wants a premium experience,” said Ashutosh Dixit, Director: Sales, Service and Marketing, Skoda Auto India.
The Monte Carlo will come with new-generation petrol and diesel engines from the Rapid’s model
