3) Undisclosed
4) Undisclosed
One of those undisclosed upcoming model is most likely to be the C/SUV based on Fabia. A 2018 launch is what can be expected.

Sir this is what is wrong with Skoda. The VW group turbos are in the range of 42K per piece out of the box. Any other excess is purely cost of labour, pipes, small parts which are not provided by the OEM. Last week during my routine service at Kashyap Fiat I enquired about the price of a new turbo and SA mentioned 20K including fitting ( OEM price- 13K, so a margin of 7K for labour and minor parts,giving example as pure illustration), so now you know the uphill task Skoda faces to get customers to trust their product over a period of 5-6 years when they are keen to charge 3X prices for very routine parts replacement works.Changing turbo is not akin to fueling a Mars rover that you need a PhD in automobile engineering to get the work done. Skoda has to improve their service experience one dealer at a time for us to trust them with our hard earned money on a consistent basis.
