Skoda reveals pricing for new Octavia
Skoda has announced pricing for its latest fourth-generation Octavia.
Starting from £22,390, the latest incarnation of the popular hatchback is due to go on sale this summer.
Initially available in one of three trim levels, the Octavia is due to be joined by more specifications and engine choices further down the line.
From launch, the Octavia will be available in SE First Edition - priced from £22,390 to £24,280 - SE L First Edition - priced from £25,150 to £29,515 - and SE Technology, which comes in at between £22,640 and £24,530.
Available in either hatchback or estate layouts, the Octavia is available with one of three engine options to begin with. A 1.5-litre petrol and 113bhp, 2.0-litre diesel are available with all trims, while a 148bhp 2.0-litre diesel isn’t available with the entry-level specification.
Later in the year the line-up is due to be expanded with an entry-level S specification, along with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. Mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines are due to join the range too, as well as a sporty vRS model.
Standard equipment includes the firm’s latest infotainment technology, as well as digital dials and LED headlights. Current entry-level SE First Edition cars also benefit from full smartphone connectivity and five USB-C ports.
The range-topping SE L First Edition boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, microsuede technology and heated front seats among other options. Meanwhile SE Technology cars benefit from voice control, a 10-inch touchscreen display and parking sensors fitted as standard.
Orders for the Octavia are due to open in June prior to deliveries commencing in July.
