Skoda continues its model offensive with the new Octavia Estate. Only a few weeks after the launch of the Octavia Hatch, the third-generation Octavia Estate celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show.
Skoda’s Octavia sets new standards in the compact segment and reaffirms its unique position in this class. The Octavia Estate offers unrivalled space, functionality, innovative safety and comfort systems, fuel efficiency, and many ‘Simply Clever’ ideas at exceptional value for money.
The new Skoda Octavia Estate is longer and wider than its predecessor. The wheelbase has grown resulting in record room and space. At 610 litres, the size of the boot sets a new record for its class. The folding passenger seat makes transporting long objects easy. There is space for a luggage compartment retractable parcel shelf and roof bars under the adjustable and retractable variable boot floor.
There are modern safety assistants available upon request onboard the new Skoda Octavia Estate such as the Automatic Post-Collision Brake, Front Assistant with City Emergency Braking Function, the Driver Activity Assistant (fatigue detection), the Crew Protection Assistant or the Lane Assistant to keep you inside the lanes.
The newly developed engines of the third-generation Skoda Octavia Estate are up to 17% more economical than the previous generation engines. In the UK, two petrol and two diesels are available. A fuel efficient GreenLine version will reach a consumption of only 83.1mpg and CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km.
Also to be seen first at the 2013 Geneva Motor show is the Skoda Octavia Estate 4×4 with a newly developed all-wheel drive and fifth-generation Haldex clutch.
