Interior: new design improves ergonomics and appearance

› Multi-level dashboard with one-touch keys for important functions
› Newly designed, convenient, two-spoke steering wheel featuring knurled scroll wheels
› Door trims in a new design and LED ambient lighting with more options

ŠKODA has redesigned the interior concept of its brand icon. In addition to the free-standing, central screen and new, even higher-quality materials, the OCTAVIA is the first ŠKODA production model to be equipped with a new multi-level dashboard and a newly designed two-spoke steering wheel. A novel touch control slider below the 10-inch variant of the central display, selected one-touch keys for important vehicle functions as well as buttons and knurled scroll wheels on the multifunction steering wheel improve ergonomics and simplify operation.

The ŠKODA designers have provided the fourth-generation OCTAVIA with an all-new interior. The new steering wheel has been reduced to two spokes, can be heated as an option, and features a chrome trim. If ordered as a multifunction variant, the control buttons have been completely rearranged and, together with new chrome knurled scroll wheels, make operation even easier. A total of 14 different functions can be carried out using the buttons and wheels, including – for the first time –activating the optional heating for the steering wheel and operating Travel Assist. A three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel is available as an option.

Multi-level dashboard

The dashboard is modular and has been arranged in different levels. Below the large and free-standing central display, a colour-contrasting area cites the line of the ŠKODA grille. In the lower part, there is the new centre console, which is characterised by an elegant and very clear design. The one-touch keys for important vehicle functions such as Driving Mode Select or Park Assist have been moved up below the central display. Chrome elements adorn the centre console and the door trims, which feature door handles in a new design. The front door trims are now partially perforated, the operating button for the electrically adjustable wing mirrors is now located on the armrest next to the buttons for the electric windows. Both the doors and dashboard are made of new and soft-touch materials to create a particularly high-quality look.




New options for the LED ambient lighting

The new LED ambient lighting in the ŠKODA OCTAVIA is a visual delight, indirectly illuminating the front doors and dashboard. The driver can choose from a total of ten different colours and can even assign differing colours to the dashboard and footwell. In addition, the various colours are bundled and categorised by symbols, which can be used to create coordinated light scenarios such as dawn, sun or clouds. The ambient lighting also includes the projection of the ŠKODA lettering on the ground next to the front doors when they are opened.
