New 2021 Skoda Octavia launched at Rs 25.99 lakh in India. This launch has finally happened after the much delay due to the ongoing pandemic, as it was originally slated to launch in late 2020. This sedan has been priced at Rs 25.99 lakh for the base model.
As for the design, there hasn’t been much changed for the India-spec model from 2019. The new Octavia’s styling has been brought in line with the Czech carmaker’s current design language. This means, gone are the previous model’s quad-headlight headlight layout and in its place is a more conventional arrangement. It is available in standard colour options with the new Octavia which include the Lava Blue, Magic Black and Candy White and there are two additional colour options too which are Brilliant Silver and Maple Brown.
As for the powertrain, there is a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, TSI turbo-petrol engine that produces 190hp and 320Nm. The engine comes paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox with a shift-by-wire selector. Skoda will not be offering the new Octavia with a diesel engine, in line with its decision to focus on the petrol segment more. While for the changes inside, there is a new layered design with the free-standing 10-inch touchscreen infotainment screen and 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster.
