Skoda Aims to Dethrone The Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus ST by Hybridizing the Octavia vRS in 2021

Skoda will take the hybrid route for the 2021 Octavia by electrifying the RS

According to Christian Strube, Skoda’s head of research and development, the fourth-generation Octavia might go hybrid; and since Octavia has been one of the longest and the strongest selling models in the company’s line-up for quite some time, it’ll be the vRS version that gets its electric digs first.

2019 Skoda Kodiaq GT

A powerful car for the masses of China

Skoda recently launched the Kodiaq GT and announced that it is destined to serve as the automaker’s flagship product on the Chinese market. With a "GT" badge, one would assume that the Kodiaq GT would be about extreme performance but, in its best form, it pumps out just 217 horsepower. It does feature some enhancements inside, though, so at least it has that going for it. All four Skoda products currently offered in China are SUVs – the Kamiq, Karoq, Kodiaq, and Kodiaq GT.

Skoda’s Offering In The Subcompact SUV Segment To Be Launched Within 12 Months

Skoda says chances of seeing one sold outside of China are zero

Skoda unveiled the Kodiaq GT, a mid-size crossover SUV with sportier styling that will only be available in China. The 7-speed DSG gearbox will be standard and, judging by the leaked interior shots, Skoda is targeting a wealthier clientele with this new model.

Czech automaker Skoda, part of the VAG Group, has been on a roll lately. They barely took the wraps off the menacing Kodiaq vRS that claims to be the fastest ever seven-seater SUV to lap the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. Now, they’re back with a new model, the Kodiaq GT, Skoda’s first Coupe SUV.

It features the same sloped rear window like the ’creator’ of this niche, BMW’s X6, but, unlike the Bimmer, you won’t be able to get it unless you live in China.

2018 Skoda Vision RS

2018 Skoda Vision RS

A sporty path to the future for Skoda

Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, the Skoda Vision RS shows the path the Czech manufacturer is likely to take for the next generation of its cars. This is a hatchback, sized like a Volkswagen Golf, but sharpened up to the level of a hot-hatch. The Vision RS, a concept car, rolled under the Paris Motor Show lights with a 1.5-liter turbocharged gas engine producing 148 horsepower but assisted with an additional electric motor good for 100 horsepower. As a hybrid, the Vision RS demonstrates Volkswagen’s uncanny ability to craft modern compact cars and transform them into hot hatchbacks - a type of a car the company is definitely versed in (just remember the Golf GTI, the Leon Cupra, the Audi S3, and the Octavia, among others).

13 Crossover Wagons You Could Buy Instead of an SUV

13 Crossover Wagons You Could Buy Instead of an SUV

Buck the trend, get a wagon!

High-riding vehicles, like crossovers and SUVs are at the height of popularity right now, but they’re not the only way to go if you want practicality and some off-road capability. Crossover style raised wagons are a great alternative and while they can still drive you over a rough field or rutted road with ease, they’re better to drive on road and actually pretty stylish.

They are essentially the wagon versions of different cars which have gained extra ride height and plastic cladding on the outside to protect them from scratches in their most vulnerable points. These vehicles usually have standard all-wheel drive and are usually a higher trim level, so they are not cheap (compared to the vehicle they’re based on) but they also come with a lot of equipment.

Here’s a list of the 13 coolest crossover-style wagons you can buy today.

2019 Skoda Rapid

2019 Skoda Rapid

Skoda is due to reveal an all-new generation of Rapid hatch next year. It should grow in size to match that of the VW Golf or Ford Focus, effectively moving it away from its current position between the Fabia city car and the Octavia. On that note, the new-gen model may not even be called Rapid. Since there is a lot of reshuffling within the Skoda range, the whole lineup could change, and the similarly-sized Octavia will be moved upmarket for its next generation.
