The OCTAVIA marked the beginning of ŠKODA AUTO's model offensive campaign for India, conceptualized two decades ago. The fourth generation, with its timeless design, exquisite interiors, class-leading safety, and intelligent connectivity features, pushes the yardstick further.
ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION
The all-new OCTAVIA's bold styling and class-leading space may grab the headlines, but the vehicle's inner workings tell an equally compelling tale. A seven-speed DSG gearbox automatically adapts to one's driving style while taking road conditions into account.
A first for the Czech auto manufacturer in India, the fourth-generation OCTAVIA features a 'shift by wire' technology. A rocker switch with a minimalist design, integrated into the centre console, controls, and electronically conveys the gear selection to the transmission unit. The electromechanical parking module is activated and deactivated by a button on the centre console between the front seats, and this comes as standard across the all-new OCTAVIA range and has replaced the mechanical handbrake lever.
SAFETY AND SECURITY
At ŠKODA AUTO, safety is a priority. The standard safety equipment on the fourth-generation OCTAVIA Laurin & Klement includes a wide range of features such as eight airbags: dual front airbags, side airbags at front and rear, and curtain airbags at front and rear, which remains the segment benchmark.
The latest ŠKODA AUTO offering comes equipped with the iBuzz Fatigue Alert that detects signs of fatigue in the driver and prompts him or her to take a break.
The Bi-LED headlights of the new OCTAVIA come with the AFS (Adaptive Front-lighting System) function for optimum illumination of the road and its surroundings. These headlamps can respond to speed changes, as well as to various light and weather conditions. The AFS system includes headlamp swivelling and cornering functions.
In addition, a host of security equipment and safety support functions include ABS (Anti-lock Braking System), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), EBD (Electronic Brake-force Distribution), MBA (Mechanical Brake Assist), MKB (Multi Collision Brake), HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assist), ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), EDS (Electronic Differential Lock), tyre pressure monitoring system, acoustic warning signal for overrun speed, engine immobilizer with floating code system, Parktronic sensors and speakers at the front and rear, and KESSY (Keyless Entry, Start, and exit System) on all doors.
The turbocharged 2.0 TSI petrol engine is at the core of the all-new ŠKODA OCTAVIA. It delivers 190 PS (140kW) of power and a peak torque output of 320Nm while delivering fuel efficiency figures of 15.81 km/l (ARAI)
