Skoda All Set to Amaze with Stylish New Octavia
The year 2019 has been the year of Skoda. The Czech carmaker started this year by unrevealing Skoda Scala which was a successful replacement for the Skoda Rapid and a tough competitor of Golf. It then introduced Kamiq, an SUV that offered comfort, style, and satisfaction to its consumers. Then it came into headlines with its updated model of Superb and some hybrid models of Kamiq and Scala.
But, as it is said, success only pays off when there is hard work involved in it. Recently the Czech carmaker was spotted testing the new-generation Skoda Octavia. On closer examination, the Skoda Octavia 2020 prototype can be seen wearing some clever covering. Though the camouflage tapes over the entire bodywork, it still fails to hide the newly designed, iconic and glazing headlamps and grille.
The next-gen Skoda Octavia will be based on an updated version of Volkswagen’s MQB platform and will continue to sport a notchback design for the style satisfaction of the customers. On the design front, Skoda will revise the next-gen Octavia’s styling with the new Scala and Kamiq sold internationally. It would also drop the current split-headlight and grille for a more traditional headlight layout with a sleeker and wider grille. It is also assumed that this model of Octavia will sport LED lights all around with a bit higher trims and Matrix LED Light Setup.
The rear of the vehicle has been comprehensively redesigned but we might need to wait in order to see how much the sedan has changed in terms of taillight and boot lid design.
Gratifying Interiors Makes It Top-Notch
As suggested by the Skoda Auto India, the new skoda Octavia will be more premium and sport better materials than the current version. The dashboard will feature an updated layout and would feature chrome trim on controls for the infotainment system and air conditioning. It would feature a silver decor on the front center console and door panels.

It also highlights a 6.5inch Colour Touchscreen Central Infotainment System for easy navigation through the features of the car. All over, the interiors of this car are designed to provide comfort and ease to the customers along with a feel of luxury.
