The 2013 Skoda Octavia has been revealed. The Czech carmaker has released the official images of the new Skoda Octavia Mk3 which will be launched later next year. The new Skoda Octavia is based on Volkswagen's MQB platform on which the VW Golf, Audi A3 and the Seat Leon are built.

The new Octavia will no longer be Skoda's entry level sedan following the launch of the Rapid. The Octavia Mk3 will be available with both petrol and diesel engines. In fact Skoda has stated that the new Octavia will come with eight engine options.

ŠKODA design chief Jozef Kaba and his team revised the car from head to toe, creating enthusiasm at first sight. Never before has a ŠKODA Octavia appeared as dynamic and at the same time as timelessly elegant, as distinctive, refined and assured on the road as this bestseller's third generation.

The front of the car is assured and confident thanks to an emphasis on horizontal lines and a new location for the ŠKODA logo.

The side aspect of the new ŠKODA Octavia has become markedly more dynamic when compared to its predecessor. This is down to the long wheelbase as well as to the shortened front overhang and a C pillar pulled far backwards.

The high, sharp tornado line provides the car with optical stretch and distinctively highlights its coupé-like silhouette. A special new characteristic is an upswept dynamic window line in the rear doors, the so-called "fin" - a small, but effective design idea providing the car with a forceful appearance and direction.

The new ŠKODA Octavia impresses with an all-new generation of radio and radio navigation systems. Touch displays with proximity sensors and swiping functionality will be available in higher-level systems, while the new CANTON sound system and an acoustically optimised passenger space provide pure listening pleasure.

Available for the first time in a ŠKODA is the Adaptive Cruise Assistant, which automatically maintains a pre-set distance to the car ahead. The new Intelligent Light Assistant will switch to high beam and back automatically, increasing comfort and safety in traffic.

The GreenLine version of the new ŠKODA Octavia (1.6 TDI/81 kW) achieves CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km and consumes a mere 3.4 litres of diesel per 100 km.

New Skoda Octavia

In all, four petrol engines, all with cutting-edge TSI technology, and four modern TDI common-rail diesel engines are available, with a CNG version planned for later.

The new 2013 Skoda Octavia is expected to be launched in India next year. The new Octavia could replace the Laura as Skoda's mid level executive sedan in India.
