It has been six years since the Skoda Octavia first debuted in Mlada Boleslav, Czech. The fourth generation of the Octavia is on the cards to take its wraps off in the Q2 of 2019.
Although the 2020 Skoda Octavia has not been officially introduced in the global markets yet, the Octavia rendering has been underworked by Andrei Avararii, a specialist future model illustrator. The medium-sized sedan has been visualized in a speculative rendering with single projector headlamps which are separated in a split-style display with a low profile. A slimmer front grille housed in the front fascia of the car is another remarkable change in the rendered version.

While the side profile of the Skoda Octavia remains the same, the rear angular look of the sedan has been redesigned with a set of Skoda Scala- inspired razor-sharp tail lights, more robust bumper enhancing the sporty silhouette of the model. Though the interior of the version is not yet revealed, it is highly expected to come with a spirit of minimalism and luxuriousness.
Engine-wise, the Skoda Octavia gets a 1.0-litre TSI three-cylinder petrol burner as an entry-level version for the European market. Also, the higher-end powertrain options include a 1.5-litre TSI-Evo 4-cylinder petrol, a 1.6-litre TDI 4-cylinder diesel along with a 2.0-litre TDI four-cylinder diesel engine. The 2020 Skoda Octavia is likely to reach the Indian shores in late 2020 or early 2021.
A PHEV variant of the new Skoda Octavia is in the pipeline to come in Octavia’s lineup as well. Also, a plug-in hybrid model will be offered in the Skoda Superb facelift soon. Powering the facelifted Skoda Superb facelift is a 1.4-litre TSI engine combined with a hybrid powertrain that source the power from a 13 kWh battery. The car is highly appreciated to release zero-emission level in the range of 64 km. The Skoda Superb facelift is expected to be launched in India in September 2019.
