The all-new Skoda Octavia is scheduled to launch sometime during 2017. Internationally, Skoda offers the Octavia in sedan and estate styled body, while India only gets the sedan.
Launch of Skoda's new Octavia in India will be scheduled post its international debut. We expect, the facelifted Octavia to be introduced in India by 2017-end. Skoda will definitely not be bringing the all-new Octavia estate version to the Indian shores.
In terms of design, all-new Skoda Octavia will be on par with the Kodiaq SUV. Front and rear bumpers will be redesigned for a muscular presence. Headlights will also be redesigned for an unique front fascia on the 2017 Skoda Octavia.
Under the hood, most likely the standard diesel and petrol engines that currently do the duty will be offered. An optional manual and automatic transmission will also be offered.
