Skoda, which is at the cusp of a major car launch offensive will begin 2013 with a big bang. This year’s Geneva Motor Show will see the official global premiere of the 2013 Octavia sedan. After the launch of the 2013 Octavia, Skoda will launch no less than five new car models over the course of 2013. Skoda France has teased these car launches in an image posted to its Facebook page.
After the launch of the 2013 Octavia, Skoda will follow it up with a high performance vRS variant of the car. The vRS variant, which will be launched in March, will come with high performance turbo petrol and turbo diesel engines. The vRS variant will also get revised styling. In June 2013, the Octavia will get a Combi variant. The Combi variant is expected to be built mainly with the European market in consideration. The sedan and vRS variants of the 2013 Octavia will eventually be launched. The 2013 Octavia sedan is expected to make its India debut in the second half of this year.
In the second half of 2013, Skoda will launch the facelifted Superb internationally. The Superb’s facelift will be an end of life refresh given the fact that Skoda is a readying a next generation model of the Superb for launch after a couple of years. The 2013 Superb will replace the current model in India by the end of this year. There seems to be a mystery Skoda hatchback lined up for a 2013 launch and we expect that it could be the facelifted version of the Fabia. Like the Superb facelift, the refresh for the Fabia will be an end of life upgrade as the Fabia is also expected to get a next generation model in the coming years.
2013 will end with the launch of the facelifted Yeti crossover. The Yeti facelift is expected to arrive into India in 2014. Skoda is a big part of Volkswagen’s global domination plans. The upcoming car launches from Skoda are a step in this direction, even as the Czech car maker aims to boost sales across the world. So, 2013 is expected to see the launch of two new Skoda car models in India, in the form of the 2013 Octavia and the 2013 Superb facelift.
