Skoda Octavia OverviewLaunched in the last millennium, the first generation Skoda Octavia found its place in a lot of hearts and garages alike. The launch of Laura saw the Octavia being positioned a bit lower, but now, as Skoda's tagline says, 'the legend is back'. And how.
Now available in three engine options, a 1.4-litre TSI petrol, a 1.8-litre TSI petrol, and a 2.0-litre TDI diesel. There's a wide choice of gearboxes on the list as well, with both manual and automatic units completing the line up.
Design wise, it looks a little muted, especially in comparison to the first generation Octavia, which had a more muscular and prominent styling. There's a good range of options available in terms of features as well, and that's one of the key reasons why the Octavia makes a good case for itself, even with rivals like the Chevrolet Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, and Toyota Corolla Altis around.
The car, based on Volkswagen’s MQB platform, shares its underpinnings with other VW Group products like the Golf and Seat Leon.
Skoda Octavia ExteriorIf you look at the previous generations of the Octavia, starting from gen-1 to the two Lauras we've had in the country, the current car looks more balanced but muted. The earlier cars, especially the first two generations had more character in their design. But that's not exactly a negative for Octavia, since the design now is more likable by a larger section of buyers, and it isn't polarizing either.
The front gets a simple layout, with no extra fanfare going around. It also gets LED DRL on certain models, which give it added presence on road. The only issue with the DRLs here is that the thin strip of LEDs doesn't look great, and seems more like an afterthought.
The front is balanced, simple, and well proportioned. While there are no standout features as such, but the three creases on the bonnet do give the car's fascia some character. The variants that don't come with DRLs don't look bad either.
The side profile is what differentiates this car from other VW products. Since it's a hatchback and not a three-box sedan, the chunkier C-pillar actually looks good, and the overall stance is very likable too. The good looking alloys further enhance the looks.
Coming to the rear, it follows the same openable hatch as its predecessors. The rear design has a small problem though. It bears a good resemblance to the Rapid, which is not necessarily a deal breaker, but a slightly different design would have helped a lot.
Skoda Octavia InteriorWhile the Skodas of the past have followed a minimalistic design in terms of interiors, the new Octavia offers a decent looking dashboard, plush cabin, and the company first touchscreen-operated infotainment system.
The 5.8-inch touchscreen unit also supports various media for audio input, there's also proximity sensor on the system and a total of eight speakers, steering mounted audio controls.
The leather seats are comfortable, and with the dual-zone Climatronic AC, it doesn't get too hot/cold inside the cabin. An optional panoramic sunroof makes the experience even better.
Rear seat comfort is good too, but it's the space that will surprise the most. The rear leg room is more than adequate for long journeys, it not just makes the car comfortable, its presence also makes the vehicle way more practical. Adding to the rear seat comfort is the space again, this time in the boot. The openable hatch not just makes loading big items easy, but the construction of the car makes carrying large items in the boot an easy task.
Skoda Octavia Engine & TransmissionSkoda Octavia now comes with three engine options: a 1.4-litre TSI turbo petrol, a 1.8-litre TSI turbo petrol, and a 2.0-litre TDI turbo diesel. While the diesel is the most frugal of the lot, petrol enthusiasts will love the 1.8 TSI too. The 1.4 TSI, on the other hand, is the most balanced of the lot. It has sufficient power on tap, and thanks to turbocharging, it's quite frugal too, by petrol standards, that is.
The car is front wheel drive, and Skoda has certainly done a commendable job with it. The engines available are quite powerful, so the gearboxes have to be equally good too. For the 1.4TSI, there's a six-speed manual gearbox available. The 1.8TSI gets a 7-speed dual clutch automatic DSG unit, while the 2.0TDI gets a 6-speed dual clutch automatic DSG gearbox. There's also a six-speed manual available on the 2.0TDI as well.
Skoda Octavia MileageEngines used in Skodas are generally frugal, and the Octavia is no exception to the case. While the 2.0TDI is the best option if you're looking to keep the fuel bills low, the 1.4TSI is a great balance between efficiency and turbo petrol performance. The 1.8TSI is more performance oriented and as a consequence, gets lower fuel economy figures.
Skoda Octavia Braking and SafetyThe 2.6-meter long wheelbase of the car gives it some stability, and the 16-inch wheels help that even further. On top of that, there's ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), brake assist, ASR (Anti Slip Regulation) which detects slippage and does the needful so that the car stays under control, and other active features. There's also Multi Collision Braking system, which makes sure the car doesn't go in a series of collisions after being hit.
On the security front, there's engine immobiliser, and remote controlled operation for almost everything, from doors to sunroof.
Skoda Octavia Performance and HandlingNow, being a Skoda Octavia, the car needs to handle brilliantly. Why? Because all previous generation versions did so. It can't let those down who have been waiting for the car to make a comeback, and it certainly doesn't.
In fact, it is one of the best handling cars in its segment. The overall balance is good, and even though it's 4.6-meters long, it stays under control. The electronics certainly help but the mechanical stiffness is good enough to live up to the enthusiasts' expectations.
But that doesn't mean Skoda has made the ride worse. It handles bad roads with ease, and attacks corners with even more dedication than you would expect. The turn-in is brilliant, and at no point does the engine feel short on breath, not even the entry-level 1.4TSI motor.
The steering might not the heaviest, but does its job well. The car changes directions with ease, and can carry good speeds around bends.
What do we think about Skoda Octavia?Amidst a decent amount of competition, and an after-sales service that's not known to be the best out there, the Octavia comes as a product that's not just desirable, but also very practical. The good range of engine options, very fine build quality, and the overall fit and finish makes the Octavia the hot property. Add to that, the well balanced dynamics of the car, which make it a stable but fun to drive package, and you have a winner in your hands.
So, if there's one car that does it all in the budget, the Skoda Octavia fits the bill perfectly.
Skoda Octavia CompetitorsUnlike the time when Skoda had introduced the Octavia for the first time in the country, there are a lot of competitors against the current Octavia. There's Chevrolet with its Cruze, Hyundai with the new Elantra, and Toyota with its Corolla Altis in the same segment as the new Octavia. To make it even worse, the growing shift towards SUVs won't help either. People are looking to buy bigger SUVs, so there might be a good number of people who would prefer something like the XUV500 or the Nissan Terrano over a car from the D-segment. Also, there's the VW Jetta, which offer similar underpinnings as the Skoda, but under a different brand, and different styling.
