Mladá Boleslav, 14 May 2024 – New aprons and a revised Škoda grille lend the Octavia a fresh look. The advanced, second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights with new Crystallinium elements and 36 individual matrix segments deliver even better illumination of the road ahead, while effectively shielding oncoming road users from headlight glare.

“The refreshed look of the Octavia sharpens the character of our best-seller and ensures an even more distinguished product identity. The redesigned front instantly provides an even more dynamic look, thanks to distinctive aprons and sharply drawn, striking headlights. They create a new light signature and contain two LED modules featuring the new Crystallinium element for added effect.”

Oliver Stefani, Head of Škoda Auto Design

New front and rear aprons and a slightly longer body

The hatchback and estate versions are available in four trim levels – Essence, Selection, Sportline and RS. The Octavia now features redesigned front and rear aprons that increase the overall length of the hatchback and the Combi estate by nine millimetres to 4,698 millimetres. The revised lower air intakes, Air Curtains and transitions to the front wheel arches on the front apron lend the car a more dynamic look. Moreover, the designers have adjusted the sides of the Škoda grille to match the height of the new headlights.

Improved and more progressive headlights and rear lights for better visibility and safety

The basic headlights now use only LED technology as standard. The second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights are available as an option for the Selection and Sportline trim levels. While the outer bi-LED module is used for the low and high beam, the inner module has 36 individual matrix segments in two rows. This makes for even better illumination, while oncoming drivers are shielded even more effectively when the high beam is switched on. Fog lights have been replaced by an all-weather function automatically adapting the light output to the respective weather conditions. The LED rear lights – included as standard – are available in two versions. The basic variant, using only LED sources for all its functions, will come with the Essence and Selection trim levels. The top version also offers an animated Coming/Leaving Home function as well as animated indicators that extend into the tailgate, along with the upper part of the C-shaped light cluster. This version will be included as standard with the Sportline and RS models but will also be available as an option for Selection.

New black, glossy machined 17‑inch Slagard aero wheels are available for the Octavia Sportline.
