Skoda has announced two UK limited-edition versions of its multi award-winning Octavia – the Octavia SE Connect and Octavia vRS Blackline set to broaden its appeal even further as Skoda announces offers on both.
Octavia SE Connect
The Octavia SE Connect is based on the already highly popular SE trim, but features £1,680 worth of extra equipment. From 4 September 2012, Skoda is offering an additional 25% off the Octavia SE Connect, meaning this version of Skoda’s critically acclaimed model is available as a hatch from £13,990 OTR (originally £18,650 OTR); the price of the estate is reduced from £19,690 to £14,760 OTR.
The Octavia SE Connect comes with a 1.6 TDI CR 105PS DPF engine and manual transmission. With exhaust CO2 emissions of just 119g/km, it is the ideal vehicle for both fleet and retail customers.
A generous standard equipment list extends to 16-inch ‘Crateris’ alloy wheels, rear acoustic parking sensors and GSM II telephone preparation and metallic paint, plus ŠKODA’s mobile device interface (MDI) connectivity package and Maxidot functionality.
2,000 of these cars are available to order now from Skoda retailers.

Skoda has announced details of a new limited-edition version of its performance flagship Octavia vRS family car, featuring a host of additional equipment at no extra cost.

Featuring stunning 18-inch black alloy wheels, the car boasts a standard specification list that includes acoustic rear parking sensors, Amundsen satellite navigation system, DAB radio and vRS leather upholstery.
