First Of The New Octavias Rolls Out Of Aurangabad Facility


The fourth-gen sedan will go on sale by April-end

  • The fourth-gen Octavia is likely to be priced from Rs 20 lakh. 

  • The mid-size sedan will be powered by a 190PS 2.0-litre TSI engine, paired with a 7-speed DSG.

  • It will resume its rivalry with the Hyundai Elantra.

Skoda India has commenced production of the new Octavia in its top-spec Laurin & Klement avatar. The fourth-gen mid-size sedan will go on sale later this month. The first production model was rolled out of the facility in Aurangabad.

In terms of design, the new Octavia gets quite a few nips and tucks. It sports Skoda’s traditional butterfly grille which is flanked by single-piece LED headlamps. We also get a glimpse of those sweet alloy wheels! At the rear, the sedan gets bold ‘SKODA’ lettering and split LED tail lamps.

Inside, the new Octavia gets a much cleaner layout with minimalistic controls and knobs. A large touchscreen infotainment system highlights the additions to the new sedan, followed by a digital driver’s display. Expect the sedan to also get feature additions such as connected car tech and a wireless phone charger. On the safety front, it could get up to eight airbags as well.

This time around, Skoda has done away with the diesel engine for the fourth-gen Octavia. It will be offered with a sole 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine that puts out 190PS and 320Nm. Transmission duties will be handled by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. A more affordable 150PS 1.5-litre turbo-petrol engine could also be offered later.

The new Octy will resume its rivalry with the Hyundai Elantra when it arrives later this month. Although we expect it to be priced from Rs 20 lakh (ex-showroom), we suggest you stay tuned to our website for exact details.
