The prototype had a digital dashboard and most likely a basic version of the infotainment system.

Of the TOP 10 best-selling cars available in Europe, Czech Octavia occupies a separate place – in fact, it symbolizes the entire Skoda company. The compact family liftback / station wagon of the current third generation will soon “retire”, it will be replaced by a completely new generation of the model – the presentation will happen before the end of this year, in time for the celebration of the 60th anniversary of the model. Yes, yes, the original Octavia appeared back in the late 1950s.

 Thanks to foreign journalists, we can already understand what to expect from a Czech novelty in terms of interior changes. Despite the fact that the quality of these “spy” images is, to put it mildly, not very good, it is enough to consider some details. For example, a two-spoke steering wheel is similar to what the Vision X concept showed in 2018 – it was this car that became the progenitor of the current Kamiq crossover.

Behind the steering wheel is the engine start / stop button exactly where you expect it to be. You will also notice a fully digital instrument cluster, and it will be interesting to see if this is a standard option.

 To the right of it is the infotainment system screen, similar to a small tablet.

 Moving the infotainment system higher means that Skoda had to move the central air vents lower on the console in the same way as on the Scala compact hatchback and the aforementioned Kamiq crossover. We also see buttons between the infotainment system and the central air vents. The shift pattern on the gearshift lever indicates that the prototype had a six-speed manual gearbox.
