Skoda is stoking anticipation of the all-new Skoda Octavia vRS iV. The Czech manufacturer has released three official exterior design sketches showing the sporty range-topper for the fourth Octavia generation, which will have its world premiere on 3 March at the Geneva Motor Show.
The fourth-generation of Skoda’s global best-seller has achieved a maximum five-star test score in the independent European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP). This makes the Octavia one of the safest compact models on the market. Its 88 per cent score for Child Occupant Protection puts it among the top performers of vehicles tested to date.
The first fourth-generation Octavia has rolled off the production line at Skoda Auto’s Mladá Boleslav plant. The company says the latest edition of the brand’s bestseller is “more spacious, safer, better connected and more emotive”. With around 400,000 units delivered each year, the Octavia is a favourite amongst European customers.
Skoda is preparing to launch the fourth generation of the Octavia, which has grown in size and is longer and wider than its predecessor. Nearly two thirds of all Octavia buyers opt for the estate body style and today, the Octavia is the bestselling estate in Europe and the most popular import car in Germany. Skoda will therefore launch the estate variant of the Octavia first; with the launch of the following a few weeks later.
Skoda has released design sketches providing the first glimpse of the new Skoda Octavia. The company says that the new Skoda design language reveals that the fourth generation of the brand’s best-selling model will have a more emotive look; combining compact dimensions with a very generous amount of interior space.
