The brand’s bestseller boasts a modernised look, featuring a redesigned front and rear and newly-designed headlights with Crystallinium elements. On top of that, the Octavia comes with further enhanced active and passive safety features.

Refined optical details

Now in its fourth generation, the Octavia is set to receive its facelift four years after the start of production. The model will continue to be available as both a hatchback and Combi estate. Additionally, the refreshed series will include Sportline and RS versions.

The vehicle’s enhancements include advanced, second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights with a new lighting signature, designed to provide superior illumination of the road. Additionally, they now incorporate Crystallinium, a unique crystalline element that imparts a distinctive blue hue to the interior of the headlight housing, further refining the vehicle’s aesthetic.

On the tailgate, the Škoda lettering reflects the brand’s revised corporate identity.

The Octavia’s success story

The refreshed Octavia is poised to continue the success of the model range: More than seven million units have been delivered to customers since the first modern generation was launched in 1996.

Holding the title of Europe’s most popular estate car since 2016, the Octavia has earned numerous awards and accolades from the international automotive press, including the renowned Red Dot Award for outstanding product design in 2020 – the third win for the series.
