PostHeaderIcon 2020 Toyota Camry arrives in Europe – What are its chances against the Skoda Superb?

.split798712

The Toyota Camry is available in Europe for the first time in decades, sold as a luxury sedan that undercuts the usual luxury sedan suspects on price. The model is a firm favorite not only in America, but also in Russia, yet it has not been available for European buyers who where offered the Avensis sedan instead.

Now that the Avensis was phased out in mid-2018, there is space in Toyota’s Euro range for a large-ish sedan and the global Camry seems like a perfect fit. It is bigger and more expensive than the Avensis, though, and it will not really face off against the Ford Mondeos and VW Passats, but instead a different car that’s very similar to it in terms of formula: the very talented and much loved Skoda Superb, a car that offers the space of a limousine and almost limo-like levels of luxury for a fraction of what an equivalent premium car of the same size would cost.

The Superb is definitely the Camry’s biggest European rival, and once buyers do get accustomed to the Camry being available, these two models will undeniably be cross-shopped. The only problem is the Camry is only sold as a hybrid in Europe and it can’t really compete with the strong powertrain lineup of the Superb – the big Czech sedan even gained a plug-in hybrid version along with the recent mid lifecycle refresh.

PostHeaderIcon 2020 Skoda Octavia: All We Know so Far

The Octavia is unquestionably a money maker for Skoda, a Europe-wide phenomenon that has been sweeping the continent since the original debuted in 1996. The latest (third) generation model has also proven highly popular and is still selling well today, despite the fact that it was actually launched way back in 2013. Now an all-new model is on the verge of being launched and we don’t expect it to be a misstep for Skoda. The Czech automaker will want to put its best foot forward with the fourth-gen Octavia since, even though it is not a high-riding crossover, Skoda sells nearly 400,000 units per year in Europe, among its different versions.

However, Skoda has changed its model structure with the release of the new Scala hatchback, and it’s this model that now occupies the spot in the range that was previously taken up by the Octavia. Well, they’re sold alongside right now, but that’s only until the new Octavia arrives. All information seems to point to the fact that it will be sold as a more expensive and more upmarket offering – this is a formula change compared to before when it had to fill the range now occupied by the Scala.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Octavia Dynamic +

split693222

Think about the Skoda Octavia Dynamic+ package the same way as you’d think about the Hyundai Elantra GT N-line. The new styling package revealed for the aging Skoda Octavia brings a few RS-inspired design cues for the hatchback and wagon versions of the Octavia. Counting last moments among the living, the latest Skoda Octavia is expected to be replaced by an all-new model at the 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show this year. Freshly revealed with the Dynamic+ Package, the Czech brand managed to introduce a bit of pizzazz to a car that is widely criticized for the shape of its headlights. Now, the Dynamic+ Package is a swan song for the popular compact sedan.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Will Turn the Kodiaq into a Pickup Truck – Well, Kind Of

For six years, the Skoda Vocational School for Mechanical Engineering has become the playground for aspiring automotive design students who are looking to break into the auto industry. For six years, the Skoda Vocational School for Mechanical Engineering has given birth to several one-off concepts, one more unique than the other. This time, 35 students from the institution took part in the designing, developing, and building the latest one-off concept: the Kodiaq pickup. It’s highly unlikely that the Kodiaq concept will make it to production — none of the other five one-off concepts have ever reached that point — but it does point to a nice “what if?” on the part of the Czech automaker. It’s been almost 20 years since we last saw Skoda offer a pickup in the market. It might not be a production version of this concept, but who knows, maybe we could see one again sooner than later.

PostHeaderIcon 2019 Skoda Kamiq Shows its Unusual Face Before Geneva Debut

Many people gasped when Skoda showed off the facelift for its Octavia model, but now that’s no longer the model with the boldest face – that distinction goes to the all-new2019 Skoda Kamiq, the company’s brand new but also smallest crossover offering for Europe. Last year Skoda revealed a China-only crossover that is also called the Kamiq, but it’s quite a different vehicle that looks nowhere near as funky or as posh as the Euro model.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Kamiq

The Skoda Kamiq is the company’s third crossover and its smallest SUV yet. Designed for the subcompact market, the Kamiq was created and built in China by the SAIC Volkswagen joint venture. Unveiled at the 2018 Beijing Auto Show and launched on the Chinese market in June 2018, the Kamiq is finally coming to Europe. The crossover will break cover at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. As the company’s third SUV since 2016, the Kamiq joins the midsize Kodiaq and the compact Karoq on the European market. The Kamiq replaces the Yeti, which was discontinued back in 2017, and shares underpinnings with the Volkswagen T-Roc and the Seat Arona, among other Volkswagen vehicles. It will compete with the successful Nissan Juke and its upcoming successor. Until the crossover debuts in Geneva, here’s what we already know about it.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Vision iV Concept

The Skoda Vision iV is a concept vehicle that previews the company’s entry on the electric car market with a vehicle built on Volkswagen’s Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) platform. Although it’s aggressive and futuristic exterior looks familiar, drawing cues from previous Skoda concepts, the interior is unique and innovative for the Czech brand. Power comes from a pair of electric motors that generate more than 300 horsepower. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Vision iV is part of Skoda’s recently announced plans to invest around €2 billion in electrification and launch 10 EV and hybrid vehicles by 2022. The Vision iV won’t make it into production as is, but it provides hints as to how future Skoda cars will look inside and out.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Karoq RS

Introduced in 2017 to replace the Yeti, the Karoq is Skoda’s first authentic foray into the compact crossover market. Already available in variety of trims, including the rugged Scout and the sportier Sportline, the Karoq is about to enter the performance market with an RS badge.

Set to break cover in 2019, the Karoq RS will most likely share underpinnings with the hot Cupra Ateca, built by Seat’s recently founded performance division. This means that unlike the Kodiaq RS, which features a diesel engine, the Karoq RS will deliver solid performance. Expect it to boast a more aggressive exterior and unique features inside the cabin. Until the actual SUV breaks cover, we created a rendering that previews its exterior design.

PostHeaderIcon Will the 2021 Skoda Karoq RS Fill in a Niche that Volkswagen Doesn’t Touch?

Skoda has shown it is willing and able to make hot RS-badged versions of its high-riding models, so after the Kodiaq RS, a report now suggests the Czech automaker is also considering applying a similar treatment to the smaller Karoq crossover. It is also believed that it will not be motivated by a diesel engine, like the larger Kodiaq RS, running a 2.0-liter turbo found in other high-performance VW group products.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Scala

Skoda announced the Rapid’s replacement in July this year, and now, the company has launched its successor under the nameplate “Scala.” That was quick! Although we crib and cry when a car is teased for ages and not launched, we must admit that we missed that phase with the Scala. We saw just a couple of spy shots before the company released a few teasers and technical specs, and the car itself, all in quick succession.

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

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.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Kodiaq GT

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.

PostHeaderIcon The Next-Gen Skoda Rapid will go by the Name ’Scala’

Every Tom, Dick, and Harry was coming up with a name for the new Skoda hatchback that was going to replace the Skoda Rapid. After all the random guesses, Skoda revealed the name, and it’s “Scala.” The automaker chose to go with this word which means ‘stairs’, or ‘ladder’ in Latin.

PostHeaderIcon Meet the Not-So-Rugged Skoka Fabia Combi Scoutline

Skoda has unveiled the rugged-looking Fabia Combi Scoutline. It comes with all the features that the new Fabia hatchback has but, even though the car seems loaded, it does not come with what a rugged car is supposed to have – an all-terrain drive system and a strong engine.

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

Looks like Skoda has finally realized the benefits of having a subcompact SUV on the market.
With people opting for small SUVs these days, the Czech automaker has decided to snatch its share of the pie with a product that will be on sale by next year. This rumoured small SUV will be placed below the Kodiaq and the Karoq in Skoda’s lineup.

PostHeaderIcon Here are Offical Shots of the China-Only Kodiaq GT and Leaked Images of its Interior

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.

PostHeaderIcon This Teaser for the Chinese-Only Skoda Kodiaq GT Makes us Jealous

Skoda is on a roll with launches and announcements these days, especially vehicles with raised stances. This time, the Czech automaker has released the first teaser images of the Kodiaq GT. Oh yes, it gets the GT moniker. The Kodiaq GT is like the super-sexy, alter-ego version of the Kodiaq, but there’s a catch; the SUV is exclusive to China only.

PostHeaderIcon Skoda Vision RS

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).
