Skoda told Motor about the timing of the appearance of new models on the Russian market in 2020. In the next 12 months, we will begin selling the compact crossover Karoq, the updated Rapid liftback, as well as the fourth-generation Octavia.
The first novelty of the Russian market will be the Karoq all-terrain vehicle: for a front-wheel drive car of the Nizhny Novgorod assembly in the middle configuration with a 150-horsepower 1.4 TSI turbo engine and an eight-speed automatic, they will ask for 1 million 515 thousand rubles. Sales will begin in the first quarter. Later, the basic version with an “aspirated” 1.6 and manual gearbox, as well as an all-wheel drive version with a turbo engine and a “robot” DSG-7 will supplement the gamut.
Also in the first quarter, dealers will have deeply upgraded Rapid liftbacks. The model retained the range of power units, consisting of a naturally aspirated 1.6 engine (90 or 110 horsepower) and a turbocharged 125-horsepower unit with a volume of 1.4 liters. “Atmosphere” is combined with “mechanics” or a six-speed “automatic” Aisin, the turbo engine only needs the “robot” DSG-7.
With the change of generation, Rapid went up by 32 thousand rubles, but the initial equipment of the liftback became richer and acquired air conditioning and diode optics. Prices start at around 829 thousand rubles.
By the end of the year, the Skoda office promises to localize the fourth-generation Octavia in Russia. It is likely that the bestseller of the company will keep the current line of power units in our country, but this information has not been officially confirmed. The novelty is distinguished by a new technological interior and an expanded list of options. In addition, Skoda plans to officially sell both liftbacks and station wagons in Russia.
Skoda does not intend to resume sales of “charged” RS-line models in Russia. So neither Kodiaq RS, nor the sports version of the new Octavia will come to our country.
