Recall that the Octavia is the most successful model is Skoda, whose sales in 2018 increased by 388 200 units, which is more than two times higher than in the second and third best selling cars. The modern Octavia alone put the Czech company into the top League since its launch in 1996, and its popularity is growing with each new generation.
As a product of parent Volkswagen Group, the Octavia fourth generation is unlikely to undergo major design changes, as the German concern, as a rule, prefer to do small steps when it comes to update the design of the car. However, spy shots have shown that the split design of the front optics leave.
The edges of the headlight will match the corners wider grille, giving the car an impressive front view. Since the test car is still a lot of camouflage, design the side profile remains a mystery, although we expect that Skoda will introduce some changes in the line of punch and adds new alloy wheels.
Besides, we already know that for the first time, the Octavia will be more wide taillights that extend to the doors like the liftback and the wagon to make it look more like a “big brother” is Superb.
It is expected that the base version the novelty will be equipped with three-cylinder turbocharged engine, which can be found in many cars of concern VAG is the 1.0 TSI. It offers up to 116 HP of power and 200 Nm of torque, which is sufficient for those who just want to get from point a to point B.
Will be offered and more powerful 1.5 TSI, the output of which is 148 HP and 250 Nm. This powerplant can also be found in the current generation Octavia. A little higher in the engine range will be a 2.0 TSI aggregate, обеспечивающими190 HP of power and 320 Nm of torque.
