The fourth generation of the Skoda Octavia was unveiled outside of an auto show and several months before actually going on sale.
With a lineage that make its by far the most successful Skoda model in history, the new Octavia is now larger in almost every respect compared to its predecessor, while new connectivity and assistance systems have found themselves being part of its new package.
The hatchback sedan is now 19 mm longer and 15 mm wider than the old Octavia. Thanks to the larger dimensions, the already gigantic luggage compartment space has also improved to 600 liters, or 10 liters more than before. The entirely new exterior design now features narrower headlights with LED technology for the low beam, high beam and daylight driving lights as standard and the sculpted shape makes way for a drag coefficient of just 0.24, one of the lowest in its segment. Its newly designed interior features a multi-level dashboard with LED ambient lighting and features a free-standing central display. A head-up display system is optional for the first time in a Skoda model. A new two-spoke steering wheel can be customized depending on trim level with heating and/or new control buttons with knurled scroll wheels, making it truly multi-function.
