The new Skoda Octavia would soon be launching in India by the beginning of April. This was confirmed by Zac Hollis, Brand Director of Skoda Auto India, on Twitter, “For all those Octavia fans out there, we plan to launch the all-new Octavia at the end of next month, with deliveries starting from the end of May.”
Some main points have been mentioned below, for the reader to have a better overview-
- The Newer 2021 Octavia would be no longer and wider than the current model.
- Under the hood, it will come up with a 190hp 2.0-litre TSI engine
- The price of this car can be up to Rs 18-24 lakh range
As features are concerned, it would get a 10.25-inch Virtual Cockpit digital instrument cluster, a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system, three-zone climate control, connected car tech, a digital assistant that is named Laura, and wireless charging.
Now for the powertrain options, it would be powered by a 190hp, 2.0-litre TSI turbo-petrol engine that would be paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Unlike its 2020 Octavia, which was also offered with a 143hp, 2.0-litre TDI motor, this new sedan will miss out on a diesel engine. As per the company’s decision is to focus more on the petrol segment with the transition to the newer BS6 norms.
The newer 2021 Octavia was scheduled to launch by the end-2020. Due to the pandemic, it got delayed to early 2021 and then finally it would be launching in the second quarter. We can expect this new 2021 Octavia to be priced around the Rs 18-24 lakh range. It’s straightly competing with the Hyundai Elantra, Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla as well but it is being discontinued in the Indian market.
