Discover the new ŠKODA Octavia

The new ŠKODA Octavia sets new standards in the compact segment. With class leading boot space, innovative safety and comfort systems, and a wide range of ‘Simply Clever‘ solutions, the third-generation Octavia sets new benchmarks.

The ŠKODA Octavia has always strived to offer that little bit extra. The new version builds on this, by adding more space, equipment, technology and, of course, value for money.

The new ŠKODA Octavia is the second model to embody the brand’s bold new design language and the third to wear the new logo.

The new Octavia is 90mm longer and 45mm wider than the current Octavia, and the car’s wheelbase has grown by 108mm, improving rear legroom. Despite the larger size, the new car will be up to 102kg lighter than the current-generation model.

ŠKODA design chief Jozef Kaban and his team have given the car a more dynamic side profile, a shortened front overhang and have moved the C pillar back to give the car a more sporty look. The high ‘tornado’ line along the side of the car highlights the car’s coupe-like silhouette, and the rear doors feature an upswept ‘fin’ design.

Safer than ever

The new Octavia will feature a whole new range of features to improve safety for occupants and pedestrians:

Lane assist

Multi-collision braking, which actuates the brakes automatically in an accident

Fatigue detection

Active front bonnet for pedestrian protection

Up to nine airbags, including knee and rear side airbags

New technology

The new Octavia will bring lots of new driving technology to the ŠKODA brand, including:

Adaptive cruise control, which automatically keeps a pre-set distance from the car in front

Intelligent light assistant, which can switch the main beam on and off depending on on-coming traffic

Automatic parking assistant, which can automatically parallel- and reverse-park the car

Automatic traffic-sign recognition

Driving mode selection, which lets drivers adjust certain characteristics at the push of a button

Panoramic sliding and tilting sunroof

Keyless entry start and exit system (KESSY)

New infotainment

The Octavia will be available with a new touch-screen infotainment system that responds to swipe gestures. The new sound system, called Canton, works with an acoustically optimised cabin to make the most of your music. The newly developed systems feature touchscreen displays of up to 8-inches in size with proximity sensors fitted as standard on all models.

Housing the radio and navigation (standard on Elegance trim), the multi-media system is also capable of communicating with mobile devices via Bluetooth or USB cable.
