The first sketches are out of the upcoming refreshed Skoda Octavia. Soon to be an evolution of its fourth generation, the nameplate has notched over 7 million sales since debuting in 1996.
Major updates for the new car come in the form of redesigned bumpers, a fresh Skoda grille and new lights! Fans of the nameplate will be pleased to note that Skoda have retained both the sedan and estate versions which will also come in Sportline and RS variants. Headlights are now second gen LED Matrix units with ‘Crystallinium’ which will add a distinct blue hue to the headlight housing.
Officially Europe’s most popular estate car since 2016, Octavia is also a three time Red Dot Design Award winner.
The world premiere is set for February 14th as the world’s love affair for the Octavia continues!
