Skoda had started its India innings with the Octavia and that car had single-handedly launched the Skoda brand in India. Rock solid build quality, classy interiors and an efficient diesel engine were some of the attributes that we Indians loved about the Octavia. Then Skoda launched the new generation model under a different name but nowsoon the Octavia name will be back in Skoda India’s model range in form of the stunning new generation model that you see here.
As you are aware we have been covering the new Octavia in a detailed fashion and needless to say we are excited about this new launch. Unveiled a few days back for the first time in India the new Octavia is expected to shake things up in its segment. For starters the launch will be during the festive season and it will initially come with two engine options.
The new Octavia is longer and wider than the Laura which means crucially it will have more space. The interiors will come loaded and in fact the new Octavia might just be the roomiest in its class! When it comes to the exteriors the subtle but gorgeous styling is just perfect and you cannot miss the LED DRL’s. Trim levels and pricing details are of course not yet revealed but we expect the new Octavia to be aggressively priced.
We will be testing the new Octavia soon and going by the first impressions we can’t wait!
