Skoda has launched the new 3rd generation Octavia in India at a starting price of Rs 13.95 lakh and in three trim levels, namely, Active, Ambition and Elegance. Engine options include the 1.4 TSI petrol (140PS power and 250 Nm torque), 1.8 TSI petrol (180PS power and 250Nm torque) and the 2.0 TDI diesel(143PS power and 320Nm torque) which is offered in both seven-speed DSG automatic and six-speed manual transmission options. 

 

Variant wise pricing is as follows,

 

Model Price (ex-showroom Delhi) INR
Active 1.4 TSI Petrol 13,95,000
Ambition 1.4 TSI Petrol 14,95,000
Elegance 1.8 TSI AT Petrol 18,25,000
Active 2.0 TDI CR Diesel  15,55,000
Ambition 2.0 TDI CR Diesel 16,55,000
Ambition 2.0 TDI CR AT Diesel 17,55,000
Elegance 2.0 TDI CR AT Diesel 19,45,000

 

The new Octavia is a definte step up from the Laura in terms of dimensions and luxury, yet the weight has been reduced. Extra flab has been removed thanks to the intelligent use of high-strength steels while ensuring high structural rigidity. The new MQB platform provides for the bigger dimensions of the Octavia. Space has been increased on the inside without compromising on boot space which can now swallow 590 litres of your luggage. 

 

The Octavia follows the new Vision D design philosophy of Skoda while sticking to its Czech DNA sporting a minimalistic and understated exterior. The redesigned vertically stacked grille with a refined Skoda badge is the way forward for all future Skoda vehicles. The front has short overhangs and the side of the car sports a finely chisled line connecting the front to the tail lamps. The rear is very reminiscent of the Skoda Rapid mostly because of the C-shaped tail lamps. However, the overall appearance of the car has an air of sophistication and precision to it and as such grows on you with each new look.  The interior is made of fine quality materials and dressed in leather. The piano black finish on the central console provides for a premium touch.
