At the moment, the prices of new cars intended for the home market have been announced, and even there the range has been cut down. The full-scale launch of new products is scheduled for next year.
The world premiere of the second-generation Skoda Kodiaq crossover was held in October, and a month later the new liftback and Superb station wagon debuted. The full launch of both models on the European market will take place only in the second quarter of 2024, but in Skoda’s native Czech Republic, applications have already been accepted and prices have been announced. True, the SUV is still available in a single configuration, and the Superb can only be ordered as a “barn” Combi. And both models at the first stage are offered with one motor.
