Skoda Octavia has been a well-known and successful model in India for more than two decades. It was discontinued for few years, and reintroduced with refreshing features and improved performance. Skoda is all set to launch a facelift version of Octavia with refreshing design and impressive interior features. The exteriors will have new split-styled headlights with daytime running lights at the bottom and a new radiator grill with chrome surrounds. The interior fit and finish would be upgraded with new upholstery, new infotainment system with 9.2” touchscreen with Columbus navigation system and optional LTE module. The safety features of airbags for the front and rear seat occupants, and rear parking assist with center display would be included in the facelift version.

Skoda Octavia Expected Exteriors

The Skoda Octavia Facelift exteriors will have new split-styled headlights with LED daytime running lights and a new radiator grille with chrome slats. The exteriors will be given a facelift with a stylish front bumper, bonnet and front fenders. The body contour running from the front fenders to the rear quarter panel will be introduced, giving it a new and refreshing look. The rear profile will not be given many changes with respect to body panels and tailgate design. However, the introduction of new taillights with LED and the contours on the rear bumper will add to the elegant stance of the car. The Skoda Octavia Facelift will also have a new set of body paints giving a wide range of choices for the customers to choose from.

Skoda Octavia Expected Interior

The Skoda Octavia Facelift interiors will have a new dual-tone dashboard with new multi-information instrument cluster and a center console with new infotainment system with 9.2” touchscreen. The interiors aesthetics will be highlighted with new trims, fine finishing roofline and floor mats, and utility features of spacious air-cooled glove box, automatic air conditioning, and bottle and cup holders for both front and rear seat occupants. The driver and co-passenger seats will be provided with better cushioning and lumbar support. The top variants will have leather upholstery for the seats, steering wheel and gear lever cover.

Skoda Octavia Expected Engine and Transmission The Skoda Octavia Facelift specifications would be available in two petrol engine versions and two diesel engine versions.

Skoda Octavia Expected Performance and Handling

The Skoda Octavia Facelift performance factors would be taken to the next level with the refinement of engine and driveline. The advanced technology performance features of electronic stability control system, and the anti-slip regulation with motor speed regulation system for safe handling at high speeds and irregular road conditions would be introduced. The driving experience would be further improved with electro-mechanical power steering system and the driver information system assisting for planning the trip for a pleasant experience of the long drives.

What do we think about

The Skoda Octavia facelift has impressive exterior design and improved aerodynamics for better performance. The spacious and luxurious interiors with new set of equipment, fit and finish, and utility features make it a great option as a premium sedan worth buying.


The Skoda Octavia competition would be with the models such as Toyota Corolla Altis, Hyundai Elantra and Chevrolet Cruze. The refinement in the exterior styling features, and interior comfort and convenience features, and the brand value of Skoda in India would give it an edge over the competing models.
