Czech Auto major Skoda has added VW Group’s seven-speed dual clutch gearbox to the Laura (known there as Octavia).

The Skoda Laura also gets the renowned 105bhp 1.2-litre TSI engine which is used on the Yeti. This engine is coupled to either the six-speed manual or the new seven speed DSG gearbox. The new TSI engine is capable of delivering great performance like the 0-60 time - takes less than 11 seconds to achieve.

The Laura's 105 bhp 1.6-liter TDI engine also comes coupled to the seven-speed DSG transmission.

Will the DSG or the 1.2-liter TSI engine accompany the Indian range? Skoda's always bringing in new variants, and like they did on the Superb, they should bring these Laura variants to India too.
