Skoda India has revised pricing across its product line-up in the country. The Czech car manufacturer claims that the new prices are in line with the revised tax structure which has been defined by GST effective from 1 July 2017. The Superb model witnesses the maximum change with a revision ranging between 4.10 percent - 7.30 per cent, thereby resulting in a price benefit of up to Rs 2.4 lakhs.
The Octavia on the other hand witnesses a price revision ranging between 1.6 per cent - 7.40 per cent, thereby offering a maximum benefit of Rs 1.75 lakh. The revised price is however for the current model which will soon be replaced by the 2017 model on 13 July 2017 and it is unclear for now if the new model will also attract discount. In Delhi, the petrol top automatic variant of Rapid is now cheaper by Rs 10,000, while the diesel top spec automatic diesel is expensive by Rs 4,000.
The revised prices vary in each city and across the car range depending on the earlier VAT rates. Given the popularity of the Octavia in India, it will be interesting to see how Skoda prices the new model in the country.
