Skoda Auto India has launched the new sporty looking Monte Carlo
sedan in India for an ex- showroom price of Rs. 10.75 lakh. The new 2017 Monte
Carlo will be available with a unique Flash Red with black roof and Candy White
with black roof dual tone colour scheme. The Monte Carlo design has been
inspired by Skoda's motorsport heritage.
The Skoda Monte Carlo has been built on the Rapid sedan with
aesthetic changes and added features. Skoda has given the Monte Carlo a blacked
out front grille, 16 inch black tone alloys wheels, black roof, blacked out tailgate
spoiler and black grained diffuser. The interior theme has been inspired by Skoda's
motorsport heritage and features a new Super Sports Flat Bottom steering wheel,
new red and black leatherette Monte Carlo trademark seats, black interior decor,
ribbed sporty stainless steel foot pedals and an all black Dashboard.
In terms of technology, Skoda
has added a new 6.5 inch, colour touch screen infotainment setup with SmartLink
which is also compatible with MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Monte Carlo is powered by new generation
petrol and diesel engines which have been borrowed by the Rapid's model range.
The 1.5L TDI diesel mill produces 108.4hp and 250Nm of torque. It also returns
21.72kmpl when mated to the Automatic (DSG) transmission and 21.13kmpl when
mated to the Manual Transmission. The 1.6L MPI petrol engine delivers 103.5hp and
a peak torque of 153Nm. The petrol motor returns 15.41kmpl when mated to the

airbags and hill hold control with the automatic petrol and diesel variants.
