Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

Since 2000, the legendary Skoda RS badge has adorned the sportiest Octavia versions. The current Skoda Octavia RS features traditional gloss black detailing and LED Matrix beam headlights as standard.

Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

Skoda India to make broader premium push with Superb and Octavia, diesels may return.

Alongside laying out the plan for its new compact SUV slated for launch in March 2025, Skoda India has also reworked its premium car strategy. The firm will now make for a wider role for the Skoda Superb and Skoda Octavia, making for a two-pronged line-up.


- New-gen Skoda Superb launch pushed to mid 2025.

- The Superb, as before, will continue to be sold as a CKD, rolling out of Skoda Volkswagen's Aurangabad facility. The major powertrain choice will be the 2.0-litre TSI with 201PS and 330 Nm.

-Skoda India is also studying a comeback for its 2.0-litre TDI motor with the new Superb. Although, this will be in limited numbers as a CBU.

-The company could also take this further and add this engine option to the new-gen Skoda Kodiaq that will eventually also launch in India.

-Skoda India now seems to be more open to bringing back the Octavia

- One of the options being discussed, on the backdrop of the less-than-expected enthusiasm towards EVs from buyers generally, is to bring back the recently refreshed Skoda Octavia as a hybrid.

-This could be a plug-in hybrid with a 150PS 1.5-litre engine paired with a 25.7 kWh battery pack. This should make for a combined 204PS and be good for 100 km of electric-only range.

-The company is also open to bringing back the Skoda Octavia RS. But this will be in limited numbers as a CBU while the standard Octavia could be a CKD.

Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

Do they have the Octavia Hybrid in other markets? That would be a phenomenal option if priced right. The icing would be more rational taxes from the govt. for PHEVs.

Only concern is the DSG. Hope there will be no issues with heating as the electric motor will be working at stop and go traffic.

This is BIG news! Never really thought that Skoda will bring back the diesels. Gives me a glimmer of hope that the Diesels aren't dead yet.

Aah, tell me about it! All this hype around the EV's is slowly subsiding , thankfully.

I won't be surprised if the other cars manufacture re-work their EV plans soon , just like Merc and now Skoda.

And the French division of the Czech brand today unveils its base price, set at €29,880 for the 116-horsepower TSI petrol version with the six-speed manual gearbox in "Selection" trim.

Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

Is there any new update by when Octavia will be back? Eagerly waiting to see the price point.

Very low confidence after Superb prices.

Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

New Skoda Octavia under evaluation for local assembly in India.

Quote:
Not just the regular Octavia, but the sportier RS version is also understood to be on the cards.
Quote:
“We are exploring the Octavia for India because this car must come back. This could exactly be up to Rs 30 lakh, where we currently have no offering,” said Janeba.
Quote:
Currently, Skoda assembles the Kodiaq here, whose next-gen model is due for entry in the second quarter of 2025. Introducing the new Octavia will only be possible after that, as it typically takes 12-18 months to prepare a car for parts and components assembly. One also has to factor in various emissions and regulatory norms and extensive testing to meet those parameters.

Also saw this:

Synopsis

Skoda India is planning an aggressive expansion over the next 12-14 months. Alongside the new Kodiaq, the brand will introduce a compact SUV, the Octavia vRS, and updates to the Kushaq and Slavia (which won’t be facelifts). However, the most significant launches will be two new electric vehicles.

Re: 2024 Skoda Octavia Facelift teased

It is a welcome move. VAG is the clear leader in Sedan segment now. Their value luxury Sedans can easily carve out some niche in this market. This also helps in increasing footfall in showrooms.
