Some believe that since the event has got more glamorous and Indian beauty pageants have been able to make it to international beauty events, Skoda could think of presenting Skoda Laura. The present event will be the 48th show and each year, the event gathers even much more popularity with the divas participating in the event. Why Skoda could choose Skoda Rapid this time is due to the car being exclusively made for India keeping in mind Indian conditions. Available in the market at a start price of Rs 6.758 lakh the Skoda Rapid goes up to Rs 9.19 lakh for the top diesel model. It has an option of five speed manual or six speed automatic transmission.
