Skoda Auto India has become the latest and a growing list of car makers who have announced a price hike effective January 1 of the new year. Skoda offers models like the recently-launched Kushaq SUV, Rapid, Octavia, Kodiaq and Superb.

The price hike on Skoda models from January will be by up to three per cent, as per an official communication from the company.
