New Skoda Octavia prices announced
January 26, 2017
Skoda’s new Octavia model will be priced from £17,055 to £30,085 when it hits the road at the end of March.
The line-up boasts six engines, two body styles – hatchback and estate – and seven trim levels including Scout all road derivatives and high performance vRS models.
The new Octavia looks fabulous with a front design that includes a new quad light layout and the interior features new technology including updated infotainment systems controlled from an all-glass dashboard display measuring up to 9.2 inches.
Other equipment available on the new models includes a heated steering wheel, ambient lighting with 10 colour choices and a customisable key that allows multiple users to save their own vehicle settings.
Safety and assistance systems have also been improved with the addition of trailer assist which is able to control the steering when the vehicle is reversing while towing. Other enhancements include an improved pedestrian detection system as well as blind spot monitors and rear traffic sensors.
All models now have alloy wheels, LED rear lights, air conditioning, touchscreen infotainment systems and automatic post-collision braking system.
The Octavia has become the backbone of the Skoda line-up since its reintroduction in 1996 and has been the brand’s best-selling model in the UK. To date, more than five million models have been built, with sales in more than 100 markets worldwide.
