Skoda to launch new Laura on 15th April

After VW doing heart transplant to its Jetta and Passat its Skoda turn to give a heart transplant to its Laura.Skoda will be launching the Laura with a 2.0L diesel heart with common rail and will give away Pumpe-Duse diesel technology. The 1.9TDI will be phased out and the new TDI CR will take its place. The 1.8TSI and the 2.0TDi on the L&K will also be tweaked to meet BSIV emission norms.

Whats suprising is that the Skoda Laura Ambiente and Elegance trims will now also get the same engine as in the L&K. Another big change is that the manual transmissions in the diesel are 5 speed and the engine for these have 81 KW(110Ps)@4200 rpm and Torque of 250Nm @1500-2500 rpm.

The Automatic versions of the Laura get engines with 103Kw (140Ps)@4000 rpm and 320Nm @1750-2500 Torque.
