More tech, more style. Order books open for new ŠKODA Octavia

25/01/2017
ŠKODA has announced that ordering for the new Octavia range will open on 25 January*, with prices starting from £17,055 OTR. 

Milton Keynes, 25 January 2017: The 2017 Octavia is distinguished by a new front and rear design that incorporates the latest evolution of the brand’s celebrated design language. Featuring a distinctive new quad light layout, the revised front end incorporates full LED headlight technology for the first time (standard on SE L, Laurin & Klement, Scout and vRS models), along with the same crystalline detailing that defines the look of the new Kodiaq.

The UK range features six engines, two body styles (Hatch and Estate) and seven familiar trim levels – including Scout and vRS. The range structure remains familiar with S, SE, SE Technology, SE L and Laurin & Klement. Order books for Scout and vRS models will open later.

The new model also introduces a host of new technologies. These include fully updated infotainment systems featuring capacitive all-glass displays measuring up to 9.2 inches. The range-topping Columbus system (standard on Laurin & Klement, optional on other models) also integrates a WLAN hotspot (for connection to a smartphone) and the option of a SIM module to allow the car to be independently connected to the Internet.

The interior also features a host of new Simply Clever features, including a heated steering wheel (standard on Laurin & Klement, optional on other models), ambient lighting with 10 colour choices (standard on Laurin & Klement and vRS, optional on other models) and a customisable key that allows multiple users to save their own vehicle settings.

In addition, the new Octavia also offers state-of-the-art solutions for connectivity. ŠKODA Connect is comprised of two categories: Infotainment Online services that provide additional information such as weather reports and parking space availability, along with real-time navigation details. Care Connect provides remote access as well as assistance. A year’s subscription to Infotainment online is included as standard on SE Technology, SE L and Laurin & Klement models and available as an option on models equipped with Amundsen and Columbus infotainment systems.

Safety and assistance systems have also been boosted significantly as part of the model update. Trailer assist is able to control the steering when the vehicle is slowly reversing while predictive pedestrian protection has been added to the acclaimed Front assist system. Park assist has also been improved thanks to the addition of a new rear radar and rear view camera that introduces Blind Spot Detection and Rear Traffic Alert to the Octavia’s armoury.The new Octavia range features significantly more technology and equipment than the outgoing model. All feature alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment systems, SmartLink+ ensuring that Apple CarPlayTM and Android AutoTM connectivity is now standard across the model range, LED rear lights, air conditioning, XDS electronic differential lock and automatic post-collision braking system.

SE models add, among other items, cruise control, three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, Driving mode selection, acoustic rear parking sensors and driver fatigue sensor. Dual-zone air conditioning, driver personalisation (including three keys), front fog lights and chrome finished door handles are also included as standard.

SE Technology models feature even more equipment, including adaptive cruise control, Amundsen 8” touchscreen navigation system, Wi-fi hotspot, and front and rear parking sensors, while SE L models add Alctantara and leather upholstery, full LED headlights, front assist, intelligent light assist and an umbrella under the passenger seat. SE L models are also equipped with sunset glass from the B-pillar back, front grille finished in gloss black and a colour maxi-dot trip computer as standard.

Laurin and Klement models deliver the most advanced technology ever seen on an Octavia thanks to a standard equipment list that includes heated front seats, heated steering wheel, 9.2” Columbus infotainment system, CANTON sound system and an electrically adjustable driver’s seat with memory function and lumbar support. KESSY, Park assist and Lane assist are also included as standard.

Scout models once again deliver the perfect combination of comfort and rugged 4x4 ability and feature Alcantara and leather Scout upholstery, Amundsen eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, full LED headlamps Scout body styling details and off-road mode. Scout models also come equipped with a rough road package that delivers increased protection for the underside the vehicle along with Lane assist, heated front seats and heated multifunctional steering wheel.

vRS models also enjoy a significant boost in equipment levels, along with a power increase for the 2.0 TSI petrol model which now delivers 230PS as standard (+10PS). Equipment highlights for the new vRS models include sport seats and upholstery, full LED headlights, Performance mode selection and a super sport 3-spoke leather multifunction steering wheel with vRS logo and paddles for DSG models.

The Octavia has formed the backbone of the ŠKODA line-up since its reintroduction to the range in 1996 and has been the brand’s best-selling model in the UK. To date, more than five million Octavias have been produced, with sales in more than 100 markets worldwide. It has been a constant presence during the brand’s development and evolution and has evolved into a range that includes sporty vRS models and Scout variants with off-road capability.

 * vRS and Scout models will open for ordering at the end of Q1 2017.

 

 

It’s a case of another year, another haul of silverware for ŠKODA at the Auto Express New Car Awards. The brand recorded no fewer that three outright category wins - equalling its best ever performance at the Auto Express New Car Awards. The new KAROQ, KODIAQ and OCTAVIA all commanded their respective sectors, further reinforcing SKODA’s reputation for building some of the very best cars on the new car market.
ŠKODA AUTO CEO Bernhard Maier and Gurpratap Boparai, Managing Director of ŠKODA AUTO India Private Ltd, announced details of the ‘INDIA 2.0’ project at a press conference in New Delhi today.
The state-of-the-art emergency KAROQ follows on the wheels of ŠKODA’s renowned heritage of supplying emergency service vehicles that stretches back more than 110 years. The fully-converted rapid response KAROQ could play a significant role in blue light fleets over the coming years thanks to its versatility, comfort and value.

Emotion, dynamism and passion – ŠKODA combines all of these qualities with the ‘vRS’ initials. Even before its market launch, the Czech car manufacturer’s first high performance SUV, the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, proves that it can hold its own on the most challenging race track in the world. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz set the lap record for a seven-seater SUV at the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife in the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, highlighting the car’s performance qualities. The KODIAQ vRS extends the range of vRS models in the ŠKODA line up.

 

A detailed report from the record breaking-lap with the video and photo-gallery, as well as the article with interviews with Sabine Schmitz and František Drábek, can be found on ŠKODA Storyboard. The material is freely downloadable and useable in media.

ŠKODA has announced the new range line-up, specifications and RRP pricing for the facelifted FABIA. Order books for the updated supermini are open now, with first deliveries expected in September. With a new, all-petrol engine range, boosted equipment levels, new safety systems and an even sharper look, the facelifted FABIA is set to raise sector standards once again.
ŠKODA sent racing driver Sabine Schmitz into the 'Green Hell’ for a record-breaking lap in the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, before the new SUV flagship is launched. In doing so, ŠKODA has demonstrated the seven-seater SUV’s extraordinary performance, and in a teaser video has revealed the preparations that went into camouflaged KODIAQ vRS’ successful record attempt on the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife. The full video will be released on 14 June, and the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS will make its official debut in October at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
