Meet the whole OCTAVIA family

Meet the whole OCTAVIA family

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA family is bigger than ever before. Are you looking for an elegant limousine, a practical estate, something a bit sportier or a car to take off-road? Are you after a plug-in hybrid, a mild hybrid or a CNG engine? OCTAVIA has it all.


For many years now, the ŠKODA OCTAVIA has been the Czech carmaker’s clear bestseller, so it’s no surprise that this line offers customers a wide range of versions and powertrains.

Three cheers for the RS

The all-new ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS is proof of the wide range of available ŠKODA OCTAVIA cars. The fourth generation OCTAVIA offers three fuel alternatives. The first OCTAVIA plug-in hybrid to be unveiled to the world was the all-new OCTAVIA RS iV, which combines a 1.4 TSI ignition engine with an electric motor and a set of batteries delivering a fully electric drive for up to 60 km (WLTP cycle). The total power output is 180 kW (245 horsepower), which is the same value as the new petrol version of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA RS with a 2.0 TSI engine. The third alternative is an RS with a 2.0 TDI engine delivering 147 kW (200 horsepower); this version is also available with the option of all-wheel drive.


There is a number of details that differentiate the RS from standard versions. Its dynamic design is highlighted by black features like the radiator grille, diffusor, rearview mirror frames, window frames and the spoiler in the sedan version (the estate version has them in the same colour as the body). You can also opt for nineteen-inch light alloy wheels, though eighteen-inch wheels are standard. The rims conceal brake callipers in bright red paint. And, of course, the car is adorned with the RS logo, including in the interior. The interior also contains contrast stitching on the seats and upholstery, a new three-spoke steering wheel, aluminium pedals and a carbon-style dashboard.



While the RS model comes in liftback and estate versions, the all-new ŠKODA OCTAVIA SCOUT has always been an estate. Even so, there are also new developments in this line. For the first time in history, the SCOUT comes in a front-wheel drive version as well as all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive option comes with an 85 kW 2.0 TDI engine (115 hp) and 110 kW 1.5 TSI engine (150 hp), both with manual six-speed transmissions. You can also choose the mild-hybrid 1.5 TSI e-TEC version with front-wheel drive, which comes with a seven-speed DSG gearbox. The top-of-the-range 140 kW 2.0 TSI, 147 kW 2.0 TDI and 110 kW 2.0 TDI engines, delivering 190 hp, 200 hp and 150 hp respectively, only come with all-wheel drive and a seven-speed DSG gearbox.


Unlike the standard model, the ŠKODA OCTAVIA SCOUT has a 15 mm higher clearance and a specific look with “outdoor” details. These include distinctive mudguard and sill edges, a reworked bumper with silver surfaces, silver details like rearview mirrors and window trim, roof skids and lots of other changes. The interior also has a bolder and more active look, including the SCOUT logo and ThermoFlux seat covers. The pedals are aluminium and the contrast upholstery stitching is brown.

Plug-in hybrid and mild hybrid

In addition to the RS iV plug-in hybrid, the ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV is also electric-powered, with a battery delivering a fully electric, emission-free drive for up to 60 kilometres (WLTP cycle). The combination of a 1.4 TSI combustion engine and an electric motor provides a total system output of 150 kW (204 hp). The plug-in hybrid versions remain very practical. The sedan version has 450 litres of luggage space, while the estate offers 490 litres of space. 

The iV models are fitted with a battery with a capacity of 37 Ah and energy content of 13 kWh. CO2 emissions are just 30 grams per kilometre, so the ŠKODA OCTAVIA iV meets the future EURO 6d emissions standard. The battery in an iV model can be conveniently charged from a standard plug in your home. The charging connector is located beneath a cap in front of the front left door.


In the fourth generation ŠKODA OCTAVIA, customers can also choose the electric-powered e-TEC version. This is a mild hybrid using a 48V electric system, in which the electric motor helps the combustion engine in certain driving modes, thus saving fuel. The battery located beneath the passenger seat is charged entirely by recuperation. Fuel consumption is up to 0.4 litres less per kilometre (WLTP cycle) than in the corresponding versions that only have a combustion engine. e-TEC versions are available with 81 kW 1.0 TSI (110 hp) and 110 kW 1.5 TSI (150 hp) versions, both of which are fitted with a DSG dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox.


CNG: another green alternative

Another alternative fuel with low emissions is compressed natural gas (CNG). The fourth-generation ŠKODA OCTAVIA G-TEC has a 1.5 TSI engine delivering 96 kW (130 hp). Burning CNG emits roughly 25 % less CO2 than petrol. The gas tank with a capacity of 17.33 kg allows this model to drive up to 500 kilometres on CNG (WLTP cycle). The petrol tank has a volume of 9 litres, so the G-TEC model has a total range of up to 700 kilometres. Switching between petrol and CNG is fully automatic.


The all-new ŠKODA OCTAVIA also comes in a wide range of traditional fuel units. The range of TSI engines now comprises the basic 1.0 TSI with 81 kW (110 hp), a 1.5 TSI with 110 kW (150 hp) and the top-of-the-range 2.0 TSI with 140 kW (190 hp). The diesel versions rely on the tried-and-tested 2.0 TDI Evo delivering either 85, 110 or 140 kW (115, 150 and 190 hp).
