Amidst much speculation, Skoda Fabia Scout, the hatchback offering from the German Auto giant is finally ready to enter the Indian market by August end. Few models are already undergoing road tests in and around Pune, by the team of Skoda India. The exact date of launch is however yet to be officially announced. The model has grabbed everyone's attention in a short span and many await its launch.

With the launch of this model in the Indian market, Skoda will join the likes of the Mahindra Xylo Mini MPV and the Premier Rio, both of which are targeted at the Mini SUV segment. Mini SUVs are considered suitable by experts for India as many roads still are broken. Moreover, with 16-17 inches taller wheels and increased ground clearance, the model is aimed to be a treat for the potholed Indian roads.

Scout is offered with a 1.6 TD engine in the markets abroad and is expected to follow the same suit in India as well. The price range however still remains unknown. Although the model may not be as spacious when pitched against Mahindra Xylo Mini, it definitely offers rigid built and sleek interiors. This makes Skoda Fabia Scout an ideal choice for anyone looking for style with sturdiness.

As the official website of Skoda Auto quotes, “You don’t want to live like others; you don’t want to merge with the crowd. You want to stand out, to be seen. When you are tired of the city, nothing and nobody can prevent you from enjoying extraordinary experiences in the Fabia Scout”. The model can turn out to be a game changer for Indian mini SUV market. With its robust and dynamic appearance, the Indian model can swiftly maintain a higher average speed without crashing into potholes.

The passenger compartment of this crossover version has also been distinctively styled. Moreover, the upholstery in international models is made of hard-wearing and comfortable material. Besides, the floor mats bear the Scout logo, which also appears on the boot to underline the Fabia Scout’s identity. All in all, the Scout’s Indian variant will be more rugged and bolder variant of Fabia. Needless to say, it would be more expensive too.

The model will find willing takers in those who do not mind shelling out extra money to own a SUV from world's smart car makers. However, keeping in sync with its international versions, the Indian model is expected to have a bigger engine option. As far as looks of the car are concerned, Skoda Fabia Scout appears quite different from standard edition of Skoda Fabia. Skoda India is definitely looking forward to create a difference with this new all-terrain vehicle. The company has utilised scratch- and gravel-resistant cladding at the door undersides and wheel arches. Furthermore, to ensure better safety, there is cladding used around the rear of the car as well. Moreover, experts opine that Skoda Fabia Scout will attract consumers looking for spacious, stylish, decent handling, reliable and fuel efficient car.
