A programme of improvements has been announced across the Skoda range.

All Skoda models will include the steering wheel recently introduced in the Octavia.  The two and three-spoke steering wheels feature infotainment operating buttons and knurled wheels.

Additionally, all petrol and diesel engines will become Euro 6d emissions compliant, which is now the standard across all Skoda model lines.

The flagship Superb model has seen its engines improved too.  The top-of-the-range 2.0 TDI diesel gets a 10bhp boost to 197bhp, while an enhanced exhaust cuts nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 80%.  The 2.0 TSI gets an 8bhp boost to 276bhp.  The other major change to the Superb is the announcement that the 360-degree Area View parking assist system piloted in the Superb iV plug-in hybrid model is now an option across the whole range, as is trailer assist.

On the Skoda Kodiaq, the Predictive Cruise Control system is now standard and the 2.0 TDI engine sees its output boosted to 276bhp, while Karoq gains the options of tri-zone Climatronic air conditioning, Area View, and Trailer Assist.

All Scala and Kamiq models are now equipped with an activated carbon filter that can also remove allergens from the air, while a new trim, ScoutLine, is added to the Kamiq in the UK for the first time.

Black polished 17-inch Blade alloy wheels will be added to the Skoda Fabia’s portfolio, as well as an activated carbon filter.
