About SKODA OCTAVIA

Skoda's first Indian model was a quiet-looking sedan that sold on the strength of its build quality, reliability and frugal diesel engine - the same engine that gave Skoda the reputation of being a great diesel engine manufacturer. This sedan has been the iconic product for Skoda and the company has been extremely successful with the Octavia.

That is one strong reason why Skoda has once again introduced the Octavia brand. The new generation Octavia is bigger, powerful and even better in all other aspects. This is one of the most powerful cars in its segment and its design is futuristic.

Skoda's new design language can be seen in the Octavia and it is one of the most elegant looking sedan too. The exterior styling is just immaculate and it can overshadow sedans that are a lot more expensive then it. It has daytime running lights that make it look extremely stylish and upmarket. If that isn't enough, the interior styling too is top notch. It has a spacious interior and the features list on it is long, longer than its cousin, the Volkswagen Jetta. The best part of the Octavia is its boot. This is the only sedan to have a hatch like opening for its boot, this makes it very easy to access and it is the largest boot in its segment.

The diesel engine, on paper, produces a 140bhp, but it is surprisingly quicker and drivable. Added to this is the capability of the Octavia diesel to return highway fuel efficiency figures that will shame most small cars. The 1.8-litre turbo petrol has its own legion of fans, especially when it used to be under the hood with a whooping power of 180 bhp. If you're looking for a driver's car with great build quality and lots of prestige, look no farther than an Octavia.

Our Verdict

When the Skoda Octavia was first launched in 1996, it was more a smaller car in its first two iterations. Consequently, the next iterations saw a dynamic shift in its rebranding as a luxury, upscale sedan. Currently, there are many variations of this model and it debuted in India in 2010. It is a high segment car that has undergone a recent makeover. The aerodynamically designed vehicle offered in three trims, which includes the new ‘Style Plus’ edition, has definitely captured customers’ attention for its looks, spacing, interiors classiness and performance and is definitely a reckoner in its segment in India.
