New Skoda Octavia — the first photos of the interior in the database
Skoda put on a show at the IAA in Frankfurt electric Citigo, Superb hybrid, Scala, and Kamiq in the version of Monte Carlo, but the main novelty is still an endless road test. The fourth generation of Octavia will be ready just in time for the 60th anniversary of the brand.
On the test car that the paparazzi again caught on city streets, virtually no camouflage, except for extra padding. It is seen that Skoda will bring back one-piece headlights — four-eyed optics by Josef Kaban on the third Octavia no one relished. The rear lights are coming to the tailgate, making the car visually wider.
Octavia fourth generation will look more prestigious. It can be expected that the machine will again become more and more spacious, as new Skoda Scala, which in size is comparable to the Octavia’s second generation, took place in the class of compact cars of class S. so Octavia needs to grow up a bit.
The photographs of the cabin is evident that the lever of the manual transmission remained unchanged, as the engine start button. That’s where the similarity ends. The car received a new steering wheel with two spokes and a digital instrument panel. Center console covers camouflage fabric, but it can be seen that the air ducts are now arranged a bit lower. Above them is a row of buttons and a large touchscreen infotainment system. It is not integrated into the dashboard and simulates the tablet.
Finally, Octavia has lost the traditional handbrake lever. The new generation it will be electric, and therefore the company intends to introduce a novelty in the more expensive segment. The interior of the production car may not look as in the pictures, but it definitely will be much better.
Skoda has not yet announced the premiere date Octavia. To think that the automaker will try to time it to their 60th anniversary, but not to interfere with the premiere of another new group — the VW Golf hatchback eighth generation, which will show in October. Therefore, expect Octavia to be not before November of this year.
- The company is also working on updating the crossover Kodiaq, which at the moment also passes the road test.
