  • Skoda puts RCTA and BSM back on the menu as standard items
  • Various price changes applied to models across the range

Skoda has made blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert standard features across its passenger car and SUV range as the Czech manufacturer leaves semiconductor shortages behind.

Model changes apply to Kamiq, Scala, Octavia, Karoq, and Kodiaq with price increases reflecting the added equipment on most models.

Jump ahead to the model that interests you.

2024 Skoda Scala

A facelift is imminent, but Skoda has added rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring to its small car in the interim.

Skoda's raised the price of the entry-level Ambition 85TSI by a reasonable $500 for the privilege, now $33,990 drive-away.

Above that, the more luxurious Signature with its gruntier 110kW/250Nm four-cylinder, power tailgate, and leather/suedecloth upholstery now costs $42,490 drive-away.

2024 Skoda Kamiq

Twinned with the Scala in its update timing, the more popular Kamiq small SUV also gets treated to some extra kit. Skoda also promises us that a new variant is on the way – perhaps a price-leader Ambition trim.

Despite getting $1250 worth of blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist, the power tailgate-equipped Kamiq Style 85TSI remains at $37,990 drive-away.

The more powerful Monte Carlo and Signature variants with their 110kW/250Nm four-cylinder cylinders climb to $43,490 and $44,990 respectively – up $1000 and $1500.

2024 Skoda Octavia

Along with rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot monitoring, the Octavia style picks up power child locks, auto-dimming exterior mirrors and park assist for $42,490 drive-away – a $1500 increase – or $43,990 in wagon guise.

The mid-spec 140TSI Limited has been dropped, so the only other model is the sporty RS, commanding an additional $1000 at $56,990 drive-away in liftback form and $58,490 as a wagon.

Skoda has combined the Style's Tech and Luxury packs into a single bundle for $5200, a $2000 discount from before reflecting the loss of heads-up display and adaptive dampers. The RS's Premium pack gets an additional Canton sound system for $6600.
