It is the engine that makes a car a car. With this in mind, we continuously focus on engine development and are always crafting new solutions for high reliability and low operating costs. With the OCTAVIA, you can take your pick of the 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.5 and 1.8 l TSI petrol engines or the 1.6 and 2.0 TDI diesel engines. The power ranges from 63 to 135 kW and is transmitted to the front or all wheels. Two types of transmission are available: a 5- or 6-speed manual and 6- or 7-speed DSG gearbox.
You’ll get used to the ŠKODA OCTAVIA in no time at all. Once you’re sitting, you will have all controls at your fingertips courtesy of the sophisticated ergonomics. On the road, you’ll quickly become accustomed to the comfortable position at the wheel, the great view, and the readable behaviour of car. The DCC Adaptive Chassis and Driving Mode Select allow you to go further in matching the car’s characteristics to your mood, offering Normal, Sport, Eco and Comfort (requires DCC) modes.
The safety of you and your family is our priority, as evidenced by our 5-star EURO NCAP test result. Occupants are protected by up to 9 airbags that work in tandem with the three-point seat belts. If an accident is unavoidable, passengers are prepared for impact by Crew Protect Assist, which closes the windows and activates belt pretensioning. ESC, ABS and many other systems also keep an eye on the car when it is on the go.
Inching forward a bit at a time, passing pedestrians, lane switching, etc. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA’s job is to make this easier for you. The radar located in the radiator grille monitors the front area so that Front Assist can alert you or stop the car in the event of an imminent collision with another vehicle or a person. On multi-carriageways, Blind Spot Detect will alert you if there’s another car in your blind spot.
When you buy a ŠKODA OCTAVIA, all your parking worries are over. Park Assist 3.0 can park in and exit from parallel spots itself, and enter perpendicular spots forwards or backwards – you just work the accelerator and the brake. Rear Traffic Alert will help you exit a line of cars as it detects whether another car is approaching and alerts you in good time. Trailer Assist takes over the driving when you have a trailer. Simply control the vehicle by tilting the adjusting knob for the exterior mirror.
When you’re on the motorway, systems are ready to help by taking over some of the driving for you. Adaptive Cruise Control drives the car at a set speed, slows down when it closes the gap with the car ahead, and accelerates again when the road is open. Lane Assist uses a camera to read road markings and warns if the car starts to veer out of lane. Hundreds of miles on the motorway will always test the limits of your stamina. Driver Alert ensures you don’t take risks – it alerts you if you need to take a break.
Maintain optimal lighting and steering assistance when you move away from city and motorway lights. Auto Light Assist automatically turns the full beam on and off depending on the current lighting conditions and traffic situation. Travel Assist detects traffic signs and shows them on the car’s display so you can keep track of the situation.
