Skoda Octavia

The fourth generation Skoda Octavia launches with two body styles, two special First Edition trim levels and three engine options, with CO2 emissions starting from 113g/km.

Prices range from £22,390 OTR for the 1.5 TSI 150PS SE First Edition hatch model to £29,515 OTR for the 2.0 TDI 150PS DSG Estate SE L First Edition.

Additional derivatives and powertrain options will join the range later this year, including an entry level S trim, a 1.0 TSI engine available with a manual transmission, the introduction of mHEV (mild hybrid) DSG on both the 1.0 TSI and 1.5 TSI, and PHEV (plug-in hybrid) models.

A sporty vRS model, available in diesel, petrol and PHEV, will also be added to the range. The Octavia vRS iV will be the first ever electrified vRS model.

The launch range consists of three trim grades: SE First Edition, SE Technology, and SE L First Edition. Skoda says that all First Edition models incorporate high equipment levels with a host of technologies and safety systems.

Fitted to all models are third-generation MIB infotainment systems, Virtual Cockpit digital display, LED headlights, and Wireless Smartlink for Apple CarPlay.

The SE First Edition will initially be the entry-level trim grade in the new Octavia range, coming with front assist, lane assist and an e-Call system that automatically alerts emergency services in the case of accident.

SE First Edition models also feature an infotainment system with 8.25” touchscreen display, eight loudspeakers, and full smartphone connectivity.

The cabin features five USB-C ports, including one in the rear-view mirror for connecting to a dashcam. Prices for the Octavia SE First Edition range start from £22,390 OTR for the 1.5 TSI 150PS hatch model.

Positioned at the top of the new Octavia launch range is the SE L First Edition, with 17-inch Rotare AERO alloy wheels, chrome window surrounds and a chrome strip in the lower front bumper.

Inside, SE L First Edition models come with microsuede upholstery, heated front seats and LED ambient lighting, along with an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory and lumbar support.

The Columbus infotainment system is also standard, and comes with voice control, Remote Access and Infotainment online (one year).

In terms of safety and assistance systems, the SE L First Edition comes with blind spot protection, front and rear parking sensors with manoeuvre assist and Adaptive cruise control with follow to stop.

Drive mode selection and keyless entry on all four doors with start/stop are also standard fit on all SE L First Edition models.

Prices for SE L First Edition models start from £25,150 OTR for the 1.5 TSI 150PS hatch.

However, it is Octavia SE Technology models that have been specially created to appeal to business users. They come with 16-inch Twister AERO alloy wheels, range-topping Columbus infotainment system with 10-inch touchscreen display, remote access, and infotainment online (one year).

SE Technology buyers also get voice control and front and rear parking sensors with manoeuvre assist. Prices for the SE Technology start at £22,640 OTR for the 1.5 TSI 150PS hatch model.

The new Octavia range launches with three engine options with power outputs ranging from 115PS to 150PS.

The petrol option is a 1.5 TSI 150PS while the entry-level diesel offering is a 2.0 TDI unit that develops 115PS. Both drive through a six-speed manual gearbox.

SE L First Edition customers have the additional option of a 2.0 TDI 150PS engine that comes with a seven-speed DSG gearbox as standard.

More engine and transmission options will be added to the new Octavia range as the line-up expands throughout 2020.

The new fourth-generation Octavia will be open for order in June with cars in retailers from July.
