There have been four versions of the fourth generation Octavia model, which were exclusively available in five-door liftback or five-door estate body designs. Front-engine front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are available for this Škoda automobile. It has sold about five million vehicles in its two decades on the market, making it Škoda's best-selling nameplate in Europe.
The Octavia is Škoda's most popular model, accounting for almost 40% of all newly made Škoda cars. In a recent Driver Power satisfaction poll, the third-generation automobile was placed in the top half of the "best cars to own" category, while the Czech firm placed sixth out of 30 manufacturers.
The next-generation Škoda Octavia is built on Volkswagen's MQB platform, which stands for Modularer Querbaukasten, or modular transversal toolkit. This platform establishes a set of hardpoints that specify the manufacturing line's common design.
The 2020 Škoda Octavia model comes with a variety of powertrain options. Petrol power comes from 2-litre, 1.4-litre and 1.5-litre TSI units producing 110hp, 150 hp and 245 hp, respectively. Likewise, we have CNG available for the 1.5-litre TSI G-TEC turbo engines producing 130 hp.
When combined with a DSG transmission, the mild-hybrid technology in the 1.0-litre and 1.5-litre petrol engines improves economy and provides a minor boost in performance.
While coasting, the 48-volt system employs a tiny battery and a starter/generator to assist recover energy. When you accelerate, the hybrid system provides a little boost to the driven wheels, reducing the strain on the engine and saving fuel.
Gearbox options include 6-speed manual, 6/7-speed dual-clutch automatic DSG and 8-speed automatic.
Despite the stricter BS 6 emission norms, the diesel engine option was introduced to the Indian market with a 2-litre TDI turbo engine.

After a long wait, the fourth generation Škoda Octavia was eventually introduced on November 11th in Prague, Czech Republic. Since 2013, the third generation had been on the market, and the vehicle had plainly aged. It needed the injection of new blood, which Škoda engineers have done in the appropriate proportions in the 2020 model.
It would be an exaggeration to argue that Škoda's new Octavia is a safe bet. The Octavia was a long-running vehicle from the Czech company that was totally overhauled. Its outward style, chassis, spaciousness, practicality, interior quality, and use of Volkswagen Group onboard technology provided this Škoda vehicle with a cleaner look and made a distinct statement of intent. Without losing size, practicality, or general utility, the Octavia has been fine-tuned in all the right ways.
Škoda Octavia has covered widespread customers. Variants available in 2 body styles (liftback and estate) mainly include Combi (station waggon), RS (performance-oriented), Scout (off-roading focused), and sedan (notchback). It is available in five colours: Lava Blue, Candy White, Maple Brown, Magic Black and Brilliant Silver.
The Škoda Octavia is priced between Rs 26.29 lakh and Rs 29.29 lakh ex-showroom. A 10-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system for entertainment and climate control is among the model's many notable features. It also has eSIM, Smart link+, a head-up display, three-zone temperature control, a premium sound system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ambient lighting, a multi-info display, and a panoramic sunroof. Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, and Toyota Corolla Altis are Škoda Octavia's competitors in this class.
When compared to previous models, the interior design has undergone the most significant change. It's cleaner and more spacious than before, with new, upscale materials decorating the inside and dashboard, as well as the doors, elegant door handles, and retro-styled two-spoke steering wheel.
The vehicle has grown in size, and its style is now in line with the Škoda Group's most recent design language. It borrows heavily from its older sister, the Superb, in terms of design which has helped Octavia gain popularity.
This version appears much more aggressive and sportier than prior generation cars. Revamped grille, new bumpers, and reworked headlights (which are no longer split-type) are among the notable changes.
The technology for the all-new operating system for the standalone infotainment system from the MK8 Golf has been incorporated by Octavia. As a result of this system change, the number of buttons has been decreased. Some new technical features include LED matrix headlights, a head-up display, and ergonomically comfortable front seats with a "massage" function.
Škoda is still as roomy as ever. Even the slenderest adults can fit comfortably in the rear legroom.
The hatch is 19mm longer and 15mm longer than before, and the already large trunk has grown by 10 litres to 600 litres for the hatch model—incredibly massive for a car. The 600-litre trunk is larger than that of some estate sedans.
The central screen is hypersensitive to touch, to the point where you could accidentally scroll down a menu when you just wanted to tap at something. To make matters worse, the flat volume touchbar below the screen can either barely recognise your input or raise the volume to deafening levels if you stroke it awkwardly. As a result, using the steering wheel controls is sometimes more convenient.
The Octavia is rather pricey. It's a Completely Knocked Down (CKD) model, so it'll set you back between 26.29 lakh and 29.29 lakh in India (both ex-showroom, India).
The Octavia lacks a sunroof and ventilated seats, which is a significant omission, especially given the price range.
While the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) gearbox is likely to be one of the finest in this category, it is a costly technology that will be more expensive to maintain.
Despite the fact that it costs a little more to buy, Škoda has remained focused on building an accomplished, versatile sedan capable of competing with the best in class. The Octavia is still a no-frills family sedan that rides well, drives well and offers good value. Octavia should not be considered for driving thrills but more for comfort and cruising. It is capacious as it has always been. The brakes are responsive, and the steering weight is well-balanced: light and easy in town and comfortable with a little extra heaviness on the highway. The Octavia also shines in the ride department, where it achieves outstanding suspension balance.
It has taken a step backwards in terms of the infotainment system. Browsing through the system is irritating enough to lose a responsible star on the verdict. Due to the clutter, it’s inconvenient to change the interior temperature, enter a location into the navigation, or even change the drive mode. The earlier infotainment system used by Škodas (and VWs) was considerably more straightforward. The Octavia can surely hold its head high in the family, and the badge snobbery of the past is deservedly receding. Every generation has kept a clear focus and feeling of purpose, resulting in a devoted consumer base and a real appreciation for the company's evident virtues. Škoda is all too familiar with its Octavia consumers. If you're looking for exceptional value, low operating expenses, plenty of practicality, and a smooth ride, the Czech manufacturer has you covered.
