Mladá Boleslav, 17 October 2019 – ŠKODA has released two exclusive design sketches providing the first glimpse of the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA. The new ŠKODA design language ensures that the fourth generation of the best-selling model in ŠKODA history will have a much more emotive look, while combining compact dimensions with a very generous amount of interior space.
The design sketches show the OCTAVIA liftback’s elongated, flowing silhouette marked by a coupé-like roofline. A distinctive new front section, large wheels and tail lights with crystalline elements add further highlights. The best-seller’s fourth generation will continue its unique success story. Originally launched a good sixty years ago, the OCTAVIA is a true volume model that has sold more than 6.5 million units to date.
Despite the growing trend towards SUVs in Ireland, the brand’s best-selling model in 2019 was the Octavia, with 2,209 units sold.The new Octavia will premiere in Prague, Czech Republic in November and is expected to arrive in Ireland in 2020.
