Skoda – a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group stepped inIndia in the year 2001 and by now has earned a good name in the premium cars segment. The company’s portfolio in India currently comprises of four products – Rapid, Octavia, Yeti and Superb.The Skoda cars are known for its looks and advanced technology. Skoda’s popularity in the country has been rising steadily and the company is trying hard to see more growth in its sales charts. In addition to the new cars and face-lifts, Skoda has also introduced attractive financialoffers for a limited period across its entire current Rapid, Yeti and the Superb modelsto woo its potential customers. Some of the cars which Skoda may launch in the Indian car market soon are discussed in this feature.

Skoda Superb has been one of the flagship models of the company. The premium mid-size sedan is ready with a face-lift and the new model is expected to be launched at the Delhi Auto Expo next year. The exterior gets little make-over, the interiors get more features and the engine will be more frugal now. Skoda already enjoys goodwill in the sedan segment and hopefully the new Superb will add more fame to its name.


Skoda is planning to bring a new car into the hatchback segment as it a more popular segment here. The new car named Citigo will be one of the best city cars around and it will go up against rivals such as the Honda Brio, Fiat Punto, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Hyundai Grand i10, etc. It is getting manufactured at Skoda’s Aurangabad plant and hopefully might reach the markets by the end of this year. This launch is very important given that Skoda has virtually no cars in the hatchback segment here.

The third generation of Skoda Octavia, which was launched in the international markets a couple of years ago, might also find its way to India by the end of the year. The new Octavia vRS looks sportier and offers more comfort and convenience inside. It will be offered in both petrol and diesel engine options.

With the new 2014 Skoda Yeti already in market, the company is planning on another one now. Skoda Snowman is a distant possible arrival here in the SUV segment. It will be the most expensive car in Skoda’s portfolio and will be a premium SUV with first-in-class features and design. It is yet to make its appearance in the global markets and might take a good two more years to reach our country.

Skoda Roomster in the MPV segment, Joyster in the hatchback segment and SK125 in the sedan segment are other expected new arrivals here, but at a much later date.
