New Octavia on show

SKODA has offered the first glimpse of the new Octavia hatchback (pictured) before its official unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

The new Octavia is longer, wider and taller than the new Volkswagen Golf with which it shares a platform and its luggage capacity of 560 litres is greater than most upper medium cars.

There will be a choice of six engines, with petrol choices including a 74bhp 1.4-litre, a 101bhp 1.6-litre, a 114bhp 1.6-litre FSI and a 148bhp 2.0-litre FSI, while diesel options range from a 103bhp 1.9-litre TDI and a 138bhp 2.0-litre TDI.
