Exterior: improved proportions and even more space

› The fourth-generation OCTAVIA is even bigger and a real miracle of space
› Clear surfaces and sculptural elements combined with excellent aerodynamics
› Headlights and tail lights featuring LED technology and alloys measuring up to 19 inches

The fourth generation of the OCTAVIA is bigger and, thanks to the new proportions and ŠKODA design language, even more emotive and dynamic than its successful predecessor. The new front apron, narrower headlights and newly designed, shallow roof rails emphasise the elongated silhouette of the OCTAVIA COMBI, while the hatchback looks as elegant as a coupé. All in all, the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA radiates self-confidence and quality.

“With the new OCTAVIA, in addition to the emotive and sculptural elements of the current ŠKODA design language, we paid particular attention to elegant and dynamic proportions whilst further improving the amount of interior space. The elongated silhouette and the large wheels measuring up to 19 inches lend the OCTAVIA a powerful appearance.”

Oliver Stefani, Head of ŠKODA AUTO Design

At 4,689 mm, the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA COMBI is 22 mm longer than its predecessor, whilst the hatchback has gained 19 mm (also measuring 4,689 mm in length). At 1,829 mm, they are both 15 mm wider; their wheelbases measure 2,686 mm. The OCTAVIA’s increased length and width bring out its self-assured appearance. What’s more, the familiar, impressive amount of interior space is even more generous, turning the ŠKODA icon into the most amazing miracle of space yet. Having gained 5 mm, the ample kneeroom in the rear is now 78 mm. The COMBI’s boot capacity, which is the largest in the segment, has increased by another 30 l to 640 l. The hatchback can now hold 600 l – 10 l more than before.

New ŠKODA design language with sculptural elements and clear surfaces

The new front apron and the razor-sharp, narrower, new headlights featuring LED technology for the low beam, high beam and daytime running lights as standard are a visual delight. The tail lights, brake lights and fog lights also feature LED technology. The newly designed, shallow roof rails emphasise the elongated silhouette of the OCTAVIA COMBI, while the hatchback looks almost like a coupé. The latest developments in ŠKODA’s design language are characterised by sculptural elements, precise lines and modern, clear surfaces, and lend the car an authentic as well as dynamic appearance, creating a high-quality look.







Excellent aerodynamics, reducing CO₂ emissions and fuel consumption

The new design not only sharpens the ŠKODA OCTAVIA’s visual appearance, it also enables excellent aerodynamics. With a drag coefficient (cd) from 0.24 for the hatchback and from 0.26 for the COMBI, the new OCTAVIA is one of the most aerodynamic cars in its segment in the world. The improved aerodynamics also result in fewer CO2 emissions and lower fuel consumption. Alloy wheels with a diameter of up to 19 inches (665 mm with the tyres fitted) lend all of the model variants a powerful appearance. Crystal Black, Lava Blue and Titan Blue have been newly added to the range of paint finishes; a Chrome and a Dynamic package are optional extras for the Ambition and Style trim levels.
