New Skoda Octavia was shown on videoNovember 4, 2019
In a few days, the official presentation of the next generation of the Czech liftback will take place.
A week was left before the world show of the new Skoda Octavia and the company released a teaser video with the first details of the new model. The fourth generation of Skoda received fully LED matrix headlights with an eye-catching appearance: two clearly defined L-shaped light lines separate the two LED modules from each other. Crystal taillights of the new version also received LED modules.
The fourth generation Skoda Octavia has increased in size – it has become longer and wider compared to previous versions. Due to the updated design of Skoda, the famous liftback stands out even more, and a completely new interior idea combines incredible functionality and a one-of-a-kind amount of space with the best quality materials and thoughtful functions, even in the most delicate moments. In addition, several new additional systems highlight the brand’s innovative capabilities in the compact car segment.
Passengers sitting behind receive an impressive supply of legroom, in the new version it is 78 mm. The luggage compartment, which is considered the largest in the segment, has become a volume of 640 liters in the Combi version and up to 600 liters in a hatchback. Skoda designers updated the entire Octavia interior. The new steering wheel received only two spokes and a chrome finish. The center console, door cards and dashboard respectively received an update. Using a modular multi-level arrangement, the dashboard follows the shape of the Skoda grille with a contrasting color area under a large, freestanding central multi-function monitor. Ergonomic seats, especially comfortable for the back, are available for the first time on the model. They also have heating and ventilation functions. The optional sports seats are fitted with a particularly breathable ThermoFlux fabric. Another additional feature of the new Octavia is the three-zone Climatronic air conditioner.
By the time it appears on the market, the novelty will be sold in Active, Ambition and Style options. Later, in 2020, the off-road version of the Scout and the sporty Octavia RS will appear in the series.
