Even better, more spacious, safer, more connected and more emotive than ever: with the launch of the fourth generation of its bestseller, Škoda has reached new dimensions. The heart and engine of the Škoda brand is longer and wider than its predecessor, has an even larger boot and is even more emotive thanks to the new Škoda design language. The new interior concept combines an excellent amount of space and outstanding functionality with high-quality materials and clever details. Innovative connectivity and new assistance systems raise comfort and safety to an even higher level.
Škoda AUTO CEO, Bernhard Maier, said, “For Škoda, the Octavia is of immense importance. That’s why we’ve completely redeveloped this car. The outcome is the best Octavia of all time – it is even more spacious, practical and even safer than ever before. By unveiling its latest generation just in time for its 60th anniversary, we have taken a major step forward. The Octavia has significantly contributed to the positive development of the company and the brand. Over the last six decades. I am very confident that the new generation will play its part in maintaining this positive development.”
Sixty years after production of the Octavia started in 1959, Škoda is now unveiling the best model yet since its re-launch in 1996. The fourth-generation Octavia will continue to be the brand’s heart and engine as well as its top volume model. With more than 6.5 million units produced, it is the bestselling Škoda ever and has been a real icon for many years, both in its Czech home country as well as in numerous other markets around the world. The reasons for this are obvious: it features a modern design and modern technology, it is efficient, extremely practical and high-quality; it offers exceptional amounts of space and superior value for money.
