Facelifted Octavia?

Recommended Posts

Hi, any idea when the SkodaAuto India will offer a new facelifted Octavia? The current car has been around for 8 yrs and badly needs a makeover to look fresh.

 

Hope they make the car look more stunning and tweak the 1.9TDI engine to match the ferocious Chevy's TDCI unit.

Design-wise, the car combines some new styling elements with the usual

Skoda front end and a notchback that could also be Korean or Japanese.

In terms of innovations, the twin-door tailgate opening system ranks at

the top. It gives you the choice to either open the trunk lid or lift

the entire tailgate assembly.

The revised interior offers increased legroom, technical

improvements such as a DVD-based touchscreen navigation system, and

build quality that is almost up to Audi standards.

The VW-inspired engine lineup spans from 105 to 260

horsepower. There are three diesels, including the brand-new 170-hp 2.0

TDI DPF with common-rail injection, and three gasoline units, among

them two four-cylinder TSIs (125 and 160 hp) and a new 260-hp 3.6 FSI

VR6.

Interestingly, the Czech car manufacturer will offer the VR6

model with a six-speed DSG gearbox and all-wheel drive at no extra

cost. For the first time, Skoda will also build a wagon version of its

flagship, but don't expect to see it before late 2009.

What this means to you:The Superb is being transformed into a true flagship for the Skoda range.

Octy will get a facelift though not a major one but better n skoda will not change any engine n i think it will be priced some what lower as there are much chances of laura getting another cheaper variant... N also it can get beige interiors..

face lift is likely to be minor

octy sold in many other markets and production is still on

still sells very strongly - despite better motor and more comfort in the chevy

. . .must be the appeal of that solid build
