The India Octavia face-lift is coming next year but towards the end (don't understand SKODA's strategy to do so in India)..probably they still see a life in the OCTY in India.
With minor changes to facelift the major diff is gonna be the engine...
The SKODA India head has confirmed this and the trick is to launch a lower capacity engine probably 1.4 and 1.6 delivering 120/130 BHP..
I have read this not only in autocar but in other car mags as well.

but if you are waiting for this..its gonna be some time only towards Q3/Q4 in 2009 and not earlier..

From the SKODA's garage is gonna be the below cars for India.(read the 50 new cars in Auto car Nov 08 edition)
1. Fabia with 1.9 engine delivering 105BHP (same engine as that of laura) and this is in Q1 2009.
2. New Superb - Q1 2009
3. Fabia combi - Sometime next year.
4. New Laura - mid 2009
5. Face-lift Octy - End 2009
