(excludes SE Technology)
The most advanced and sophisticated model ever to wear the OCTAVIA badge, the all-new car builds on 60 years of OCTAVIA tradition and once again sets new sector benchmarks for value, practicality and equipment.
With a comprehensive launch range that consists of hatch and estate body styles, three engine options and a trio of value-packed trim grades: SE First Edition, SE Technology, and SE L First Edition, the OCTAVIA is set to continue where it’s multi award-winning predecessor left off.
The OCTAVIA has been the backbone of the ŠKODA range in the UK for more than 20 years, and remains the brand’s biggest selling model to date. More than 2.5 million third-generation OCTAVIAs were sold worldwide, making it the most successful ŠKODA model ever.
UK prices for the new OCTAVIA range start from £20,965 OTR for the 1.0 TSI 110PS SE First Edition hatch model and rise to £29,540 OTR for the 2.0 TDI 150PS DSG Estate SE L First Edition. Retail customers looking to finance their new OCTAVIA with a Solutions Personal Contract Plan (PCP) can take advantage of a generous launch offer that features a £2,000 deposit contribution, 4.1% APR Representative*, and the option to add a service plan (covering the OCTAVIA’s first two services) for just £159^.
Additional derivatives and powertrain options will join the range later this year, including an entry level S trim. The introduction of mHEV (mild hybrid) DSG on both the 1.0 TSI and 1.5 TSI, and PHEV (plug-in hybrid) models. A sporty vRS model, available in diesel, petrol and PHEV, will also be added to the range. The OCTAVIA vRS iV will be the first ever electrified vRS model.
The fourth-generation OCTAVIA is longer and wider than its predecessor, has an even larger boot and showcases the latest evolution of ŠKODA design language. The new interior combines outstanding functionality with high-quality materials and class-leading practicality. Innovative connectivity features and new assistance systems further highlight the brand’s commitment to delivering the best possible value for money to owners.
In terms of engine choice, the new OCTAVIA range features four options with power outputs ranging from 110PS to 150PS. There is a choice of two petrol options with a 1.0 TSI 110PS or a more powerful 1.5 TSI 150PS, while the entry-level diesel offering is a 2.0 TDI unit that develops 115PS. SE L First Edition customers have the additional option of a 2.0 TDI 150PS engine that comes with a seven-speed DSG gearbox as standard.
Among the OCTAVIA’s many technology highlights are third-generation MIB infotainment systems, Virtual Cockpit digital display, LED headlights, and Wireless Smartlink for Apple CarPlay. The all-new interior features a host of high-quality design features including a new two-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel, shift-by-wire DSG selector, and rear parking sensors with manoeuvre assist.
The all-new OCTAVIA vRS 2.0 TSI 245PS DSG will be available for customer ordering from Tuesday 27 October.
More engines will be introduced on vRS later this year, including a 2.0 TSI 245PS manual, 2.0 TDI 200PS DSG and DSG 4x4, plus the plug-in hybrid vRS iV with a 1.4 TSI iV 245PS DSG.
The 2.0TSi 245PS DSG Hatchback is available from £31495 OTR and the Estate from £32695 OTR
