Powertrains: Four petrol and two diesel engines as well as two mild-hybrid options

› New petrol engines: two output variants of 1.5 TSI petrol engine with optional mild hybrid technology and DSG
› Better performance: more power and efficiency for the two 2.0 TSI engines
› Wide range of engines: outputs ranging from 85 kW (115 hp) to 195 kW (265 hp), one all-wheel-drive variant

Mladá Boleslav, 14 May 2024 – The Škoda Octavia is available with a range of technically advanced, efficient four-cylinder engines – four petrol units and two diesels. Power outputs range from 85 kW (115 hp) in the two entry-level variants to 195 kW (265 hp) in the Octavia RS. The 2.0 TSI with 150 kW (204 hp) is due to be launched at a later date and will come with all-wheel drive as standard.

“At Škoda, we have always aimed to offer our customers a wide range of engines. This is also the case with the refreshed Octavia, which offers exclusively four-cylinder engines, including two mild-hybrid versions for even more efficiency. Both 1.5 TSI versions are available with mild‑hybrid technology when mated to an automatic DSG transmission. Both 1.5 TSI engines can also switch off two cylinders using ACT+ active cylinder deactivation to reduce fuel consumption.”

Johannes Neft, Škoda Auto Board Member for Technical Development

Mild hybrids for even more efficiency

The powertrain line-up of the updated Octavia starts with a 1.5 TSI petrol engine and a 2.0 TDI diesel, each with 85 kW (115 hp) of power and a manual 6-speed gearbox. The previous 81 kW three-cylinder petrol unit has been replaced by a new four-cylinder engine. Like the 1.5 TSI version with 110 kW (150 hp), the entry-level petrol engine is available with mild-hybrid technology when mated to an automatic DSG transmission. Energy recovered during braking is stored in a 48-volt lithium-ion battery, using a water-cooled 48‑volt belt-driven starter-generator. This supports the internal combustion engine with a surge of electric power or allows the Octavia to coast with the engine completely switched off. When less power is required, both 1.5 TSI engines can switch off two cylinders using ACT+ to reduce fuel consumption. The turbocharger features variable turbine geometry.

Fine-tuned 2.0 TSI engines

Both 2.0 TSI engines inject fuel with a pressure of 350 bar and feature variable valve lift. Improved air intake and friction optimisation contribute to increased power output. The 150 kW (204 hp) variant with all-wheel drive as standard runs with an increased compression ratio of 12.2:1 and is 10 kW (14 hp) more powerful than its predecessor, while the 195 kW (265 hp) engine boasts 15 kW (20 hp) more power. Both engines are also more efficient than their predecessors.

Diesel with exhaust gas treatment using the twin-dosing process

In both 2.0 TDI engines, a crankshaft drive with steel pistons efficiently reduces heat losses while at the same time increasing combustion speed. Injection pressure is 2,200 bar, while the turbocharger benefits from variable turbine geometry, which ensures optimum boost pressure over a wide rev range, resulting in a smoother power curve characteristic. The optimised exhaust gas treatment system reducing nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions is positioned close to the engine and uses a twin-dosing process to inject AdBlue upstream of two SCR catalytic converters arranged in series.
