Skoda has announced the details and pricing structure for its new Octavia model, which goes on sale from mid-March.
Designers have placed a focus on increasing interior space and innovative safety as well as ensuring that comfort systems, low fuel consumption, and a range of Simply Clever solutions are in place too.
In terms of pricing, the new Octavia will be available from £15,990 and will come in three separate trims – S, SE and Elegance.
The choice doesn’t stop there either because, underneath the bonnet, drivers have the choice of a number of engines, with CO2 emissions starting from only 89g/km.
Of the four engine options, two are petrol and two will be diesel with power output ranging from 105PS in the 1.2 TSI right the way up to a powerful 150PS for the 2.0 TDI 150PS.
In terms of the three different levels of Octavia, all have various degrees of luxury but everyone, nonetheless, provides the quality and safety that drivers come to expect from such a veteran of the car manufacturing industry.
When it comes to the entry level S model, owners can get an additional £3,500 of value when compared to their equivalent predecessor car, according to Skoda.
Similarly, the mid-range SE comes with extra equipment worth a cool £2,220, despite costing just £1,200 more than the S model.
Finally, those who push the boat out and opt for the Elegance model can gain £1,850 in price over the same engine in SE trim.
What’s more, it comes with features worth £3,575 which, when compared to its predecessor, adds value of £5,300.
According to the firm, the vehicle is “great value, both when compared to the previous generation and when comparing the value of additional standard equipment at each trim level step”.
Those who have previously been behind the wheel of the Skoda Octavia Diesel Estate will be aware of how safe and enjoyable a drive these cars can be.
This is currently available on business contract hire for £180.99 a month, as well as VAT.
