First sketches of the innovated Octavia. Take a look


It’s not long now till the innovated version of the bestselling Škoda Octavia is unveiled. Can you guess what will be new? The sketches might give you an idea.

The design sketches provide the first glimpses of the coming changes. “Revitalising and evolving the design characteristics of our brand icons is both a demanding and fascinating task. For the Octavia’s latest update, we have reimagined the bumpers and the Škoda grille. At the same time, we have sharpened the contours of the headlights, lending our bestseller an even more striking and sporty appearance,” says the Czech carmaker’s chief designer Oliver Stefani about the look of the updated Octavia.

The design sketches suggest that as part of the upgrade, both body styles of the Octavia will receive new front and rear bumpers as well as a redesigned radiator grille. The model’s light signature will be new, and the headlights will now boast not only a sportier design, but also the Crystallinium element already familiar from the new generations of the Superb and Kodiaq. The new Octavia will also be available as a high-performance RS or Sportline version.
