New Skoda Octavia: rivals

The executive sedan segment has shrunk in the past few years, and with the Toyota Corolla and Honda Civic exiting the market, the Octavia has only one direct rival – the Hyundai Elantra. However, in terms of pricing, the Elantra is notably more affordable, with the Hyundai priced between Rs 17.85-21.12 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The carmaker is now gearing towards the launch of its all-new Kushaq midsize SUV. Skoda recently announced that it had commenced production of the Kushaq, with a launch expected soon. The carmaker is also expected to launch the petrol Kodiaq in India later this year, as well as debut its all-new midsize sedan that will replace the current Rapid.
