An icon reloaded
The new Octavia is longer and wider than its predecessor, has an even larger boot and is even more emotive thanks to the new Škoda design language.
The new interior concept combines an excellent amount of space and outstanding functionality with high-quality materials and clever details.
Innovative connectivity and new assistance systems raise the comfort and safety of the brand’s icon to an even higher level.
With more than seven million units produced, the Octavia is the bestselling Škoda ever. It’s the fifth best-selling passenger car in Ireland and has been a real icon for many years.
Bigger and even more attractive
The new Octavia has grown further. At a length of 4,689 mm, the hatchback is 19 mm and the COMBI 22 mm longer than the third generation model.
The COMBI’s boot capacity has increased by 30 l to 640 l. The hatchback has a capacity of 600 l – 10 l more than the previous generation.
The new front apron and the razor-sharp, narrower, new headlights are a visual delight and feature LED technology for low beam, high beam and daytime running lights as standard. The tail lights, brake lights and fog lights make use of LED technology as well. The newly designed, shallow roof rails emphasise the elongated silhouette of the Octavia COMBI, while the hatchback looks almost like a coupé.
Alloy wheels measuring up to 19 inches lend all of the model variants a powerful appearance.
Crystal Black, Lava Blue and Titan Blue have been newly added to the range of paint finishes.
New interior concept and a multi-level dashboard
In the newly designed interior, the Octavia offers a new two-spoke steering wheel, which can be heated as an option.
The dashboard, which has also been redesigned, is modular and has been arranged in different levels, featuring a large, free-standing central display. The centre console is elegant, uncluttered and adorned with chrome details – as are the new door trims and handles.
New and soft-touch materials lend the interior a premium look. New LED ambient lighting indirectly illuminates the front doors, dashboard and footwells. The driver can choose up to 30 RGB colours and can even assign a different colour to the dashboard and front doors than to the footwell. In addition, they can select from coordinated lighting scenarios
Head-up display making its debut
The optional head-up display is another first for a Škoda. It projects the most important information such as speed, navigation, detected traffic signs and activated driver assistance systems directly onto the windscreen.
New safety systems
A whole range of new safety systems such as Collision Avoidance Assist, Turn Assist, Exit Warning and the Local Traffic Warning function are also making their debut at Škoda. Other new features for the Octavia include Area View, Side Assist and Predictive Cruise Control, which – together with the updated version of Traffic Sign Recognition as well as Adaptive Lane Assist, Traffic Jam Assist and Emergency Assist – forms the comprehensive Travel Assist system. Using Hands-on Detect, this system also checks whether the driver is touching the steering wheel consistently. Up to nine airbags, including a driver knee airbag and rear side airbags, protect occupants in the event of a collision.Tags:
