The Skoda engineering team is testing a camouflaged prototype of the updated Skoda Octavia Combi wagon. The presentation of the fourth generation of the Czech bestseller will take place this year.

After the presentation of the updated flagship Superb model and electric Citigo, the Czech company Skoda is now directing its efforts to the most important debut this year. We are talking about the fourth-generation Octavia model (the fifth, if you count the original from 1959 to 1971). As before, we are dealing with a prototype of a universal version of the new product called Combi, which received a completely serial body, but it has a lot of annoying camouflage.

Take a closer look, and you should notice the extra layers of disguise on most panels, along with the usual fake stickers on headlights and taillights.

The latter actually continue the back door, and we know this by noticing the cutouts for the lanterns. Skoda went on to hide the rear rack and partially disguise a quarter of the glass.

Despite the fact that Octavia is officially positioned as a compact car, this model has always been almost as big as a medium-sized car. In fact, we will not be too surprised if Skoda makes the fourth generation model even more when Scala becomes a more powerful replacement for the Rapid / Rapid Spaceback (station wagon). Almost every new Skoda was larger than its predecessor, therefore, Octavia’s wheelbase is expected to increase for even more internal space.

The fourth iteration of the Skoda Octavia will be shown this year. The car will receive familiar 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 TSI gasoline engines along with 1.6 TDI and 2.0 TDI diesel engines. Depending on the version, manual gearbox and DSG, as well as front and four-wheel drive will be offered. The new Octavia RS will get a hybrid motor power over 242 hp.
