The bonnet has been redesigned and features bold crease lines.
At the rear, the new Octavia undergoes complete design revision with a new sharper-looking boot lid. However, the highlight of the changes at the back will be the new bold Skoda lettering that spreads across the length of the boot. It also features new split-LED tail lamps and a sculpted bumper with two reflectors placed on either side at the bottom.
The sedan also receives a new alloy wheel design. The overall silhouette of the sedan now looks sleek as compared to the current-gen model. The chrome-finished window line gives the new Octavia a premium look.
