2017 Skoda Octavia: Things to know

2017 Skoda Octavia: Things to know

Skoda has taken the wraps off its 2017 Octavia and we decided to list out the highlights of this iteration.


Skoda now uses a unique split-headlamp design that attract mixed impressions. We noticed that the design lines of the bumper (along with the fog lamps) and the bonnet have also been mildly tweaked. Along with the adaptive LED headlamps with DRLs, Skoda has designed the LED fog lamps to now double up as cornering lights. On a lighter note, the side profile and rear section make do with just a fresh alloy design and new internals for the tail lamps.



Skoda’s 2017 Octavia uses an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system that replaces the earlier 6.5-inch unit. While the physical buttons have been ditched for new touch buttons, Skoda’s SmartLink continues to bundle MirrorLink, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for users. Furthermore, the 2017 Octavia also benefits from added functions like an auto parking assist, new style instrument cluster, ambient lighting with ten colors, a three-spoke steering wheel (earlier four-spoke) and two USB ports below the rear ac vents. 



The new Octavia remains mechanically identical to the earlier model. This means that the engine line-up continues to be highlighted by the 143bhp 2.0-litre diesel motor with the option of a 6-speed DSG or manual transmission. Powering the petrol variant will be the 150bhp 1.4 TSI motor with a six-speed manual gearbox, and the 180bhp 1.8 TSI engine that makes use of a 7-speed DSG. Even the suspension setup is carried forward from the earlier car, with only the 1.8 TSI using a multi-link independent rear suspension.
