In this post, I shall go through the upcoming Skoda cars in India in 2024. Skoda is a prominent carmaker in India. With its latest Slavia and Kushaq, the Czech carmaker has become successful at an unprecedented level in the Indian market. Going forward, we are expecting it to expand its portfolio even further. Being a premium brand, it will focus more on the higher segments of the market. Here are the details of the new cars from Skoda in 2024.

Skoda Superb Re-Launch
Skoda is set to reintroduce the previous-gen Superb sedan in limited numbers to the Indian market, following its discontinuation due to the BS6.2 implementation. The company plans to bring it back with a revamped 190hp, 2.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine, paired with a sole 7-speed DSG gearbox. Notably, the Superb will transition from local assembly to being imported as a CBU (completely built-up unit). Skoda will reintroduce it exclusively in the top-spec L&K trim, featuring new additions like ADAS with lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera, an updated infotainment system, adaptive chassis control technology, an active tire pressure monitoring system, and a comprehensive nine-airbag setup. Meanwhile there is no official confirmation, expectations are high for the new-gen Superb to eventually make its way to the Indian market.

Skoda might introduce the updated iteration of its flagship SUV to the Indian market in 2024. Presently, the Kodiaq holds the top position in our market. In 2024, Skoda may unveil the international version in India, featuring aesthetic enhancements and cabin improvements. However, the powertrain options will likely stay unchanged, with a 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine generating 190 PS and 320 Nm of peak power and torque. The transmission setup will include a 7-speed automatic gearbox, distributing power to all four wheels.

Although there is no official confirmation yet, we anticipate that the Enyaq iV will be offered in its sportiest configurations. This may include a 77 kWh battery pack that powers two electric motors—one on each axle—resulting in an all-wheel-drive setup. This configuration is expected to deliver a robust peak power of 265 hp, enabling a swift 0-100 km/h acceleration time of just 6.9 seconds. Notably, it is projected to boast an impressive WLTP range of 513 km. In terms of charging capabilities, the Enyaq iV is set to feature a 125 kW DC fast charging system. We eagerly look forward to the prospect of experiencing this in dealership showrooms, with a potential launch in the first half of 2024.

Skoda Octavia RS
The Skoda Octavia RS 245, the high-performance variant of the standard premium sedan, has consistently garnered attention from buyers in our market for several years. It remains to be seen whether Skoda opts to introduce the 2024 Octavia RS in India. In the international market, this model is equipped with a robust 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine that delivers an impressive 242 hp and 370 Nm of peak power and torque. Buyers can choose between a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.

Skoda wants to carry on its success in India beyond Slavia and Kushaq as well. Hence, these products will ensure that it can offer some additional products in its portfolio for Indian buyers. Sure, it is catering to the niche segments. For instance, the Octavia RS will be imported to India in limited numbers. Only the true performance enthusiasts with deep pockets will be its customers. Similarly, the Enyaq EV will be a rival to the Volvo XC40 Recharge and Kia EV6 in our market. Kodiaq is already a premium SUV which sells in smaller numbers. Hence, these products have more to do with the brand image rather than volume. Finally, we might also see minor updates to the Slavia and Kushaq too.
