Skoda has officially unveiled the production model of its third generation Octavia for the Indian market. The prices will be announced on a later date. Commercial launch of the vehicle is expected around Diwali.
Built upon the MQB Platform that underlies a slew of VW family vehicles, the new Octavia will share DNA with the Jetta and Golf, among others. Skoda's new design language is evident in the Octavia more than ever, and the car strikes a handsome pose.
Skoda claims this is the largest, most comfortable and lightest Octavia ever, along with being one of the safest cars in the world. The company believes it will be a game-changer.
Skoda will retain the 2.0-litre TDi mill that does duty in the current Laura and will introduce the 1.4 TSi Twincharger petrol engine that’s turbo- and supercharged – a first for the VW group in India.
We do know that production has already begun for the third generation of the car at Skoda’s Aurangabad plant. An October launch seems likely. For more on the new Skoda Octavia, visit Overdrive.in
