Skoda Octavia has been around for quite some time now. It is about time that we will be able to get a look at the new model soon. The global debut of the automobile is scheduled to be released on November 11, 2019. Skoda Auto has already confirmed that the 11th generation of Octavia is going to be unveiled at a standalone event in Prague, the Czech Republic.
The global debut of the car will take place one month after Volkswagen Golf Mk VIII will be officially unveiled. The sedan is one of the most popular models of the brand. The model is expected to come to India as early as 2020. The new generation Skoda Octavia is based on an updated version of the MQB platform. It is expected to improve cabin space even further.
There are going to be a lot of changes in the 2020 Skoda Octavia. The model is inspired by the Skoda Vision X concept that was showcased at Geneva earlier this year. This includes a two-spoke multi-function steering wheel, a bigger tablet-esque touchscreen system that will have most of the controls. It will also have revised air vents that are going to now be placed below the infotainment unit. The new model is expected to get an electronic parking brake, which is a major addition.
The next-generation Skoda Octavia is expected to draw power from the 1.5-liter petrol and 2.0-liter TSI engines, along with the 2.0-liter TDI motor. The engines for the car are expected to get mild-hybrid tech. There will be a more powerful Octavia RS that will join the lineup and it could have sport hybrid tech.
With new features, it is pretty obvious that it is going to cost more than the current-gen sedan. Skoda Octavia 2020 is expected to be released in India with an estimated price of Rs. 20 lakh.
