Skoda Australia has confirmed additional technology will feature in a significant number of models arriving from the fourth quarter – including its three-model Kamiq, Karoq and Kodiaq SUV range, the Scala and the Octavia.
These additions mean that every model in the entire range will feature side assist with rear traffic alert as standard. In addition, the Kamiq scores a powered tailgate on every variant, while a premium sound system becomes optional (via the Travel Pack) in the Monte Carlo.
The Karoq adds lane assist as standard across the two-tier Style and SportLine 4×4 range. The former now offers a new Leather Seats Pack, featuring black or ivory comfort leather seats with power front adjustment and memory.
The pack also includes auto-dimming foldable door mirrors, ambient lighting, front and rear LED reading lights and interior footwell lighting. The larger Kodiaq gains auto dimming exterior mirrors and power child locks.
A Canton premium audio system is standard on Kodiaq RS 4×4 and optional (via the Tech Pack) on Style 4×4 and SportLine 4×4. The Scala’s flagship Signature variant now also adds a power tailgate.
The Octavia scores plenty, including park assist, power child locks, an auto dimming interior mirror and driver’s exterior mirror on Style and RS. The Canton premium audio system also returns to the Octavia RS with the optional Premium Pack.
As an option on the Octavia Style, the separate Tech Pack and Luxury Pack will be bundled into a new, single Tech & Luxury Pack with everything from both packs minus the previous head-up display and dynamic chassis control.
While there are no technology changes for the Fabia and Superb, the flagship Superb lift back and wagon will singularly continue in SportLine 4×4 guise.
Skoda has significant current stock available across the model range, with further information available from your local dealer. Pricing for the updated Skoda range will be announced shortly. If you’re keen on one and need finance, talk to CreditOne.
