The history of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA began 60 years ago, when ŠKODA AUTO introduced its eighth post-war model – the OCTAVIA. This initial version notched up great commercial success and established a firm footing for the modern OCTAVIA which has rapidly became our perennial best-seller in the UK.
The all-new model 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 class-leading practicality with outstanding functionality and high-quality materials. Innovative connectivity features and new assistance systems further highlight the brand’s commitment to delivering the best possible value for money to owners.
Among the many highlights fitted to all models 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 is teeming with innovation, with some new features, already used in other ŠKODA models, now being incorporated into the OCTAVIA for the first time, while others have never before been seen in any ŠKODA. The all-new OCTAVIA, for example, is the first ŠKODA to offer the head-up display. And as well as established driving assists and safety components, the all-new OCTAVIA is the first to be offered with Turn assist, Collision avoidance assist and Exit warning.
