Quick Review

  Sharp seems to be an appropriate word to describe the new age Skoda Octavia which has taken a re-birth and now adorns a more classy, plush and an expensive avatar from its predecessor. As if, Skoda launched the previous generation Octavia, which gained quite of popularity, to make people accustom to its dynamics and then in a clever fashion upgraded the entire car which now enters a complete new segment to lure buyers to spend more. Well, it seems their strategy has paid-off most likely with Skoda loyalists and even first time buyers getting attracted to this entry level luxury sedan. The sharp lines running all around this sedan defines its character. The angluar Bi-Xenon high tech headlamps with adaptive light system and even a day time running LED strip makes it quite upmarket. Its trademark twin crease on the bonnet now makes the logo sit perfectly on the bonnet (not the front grille) which now houses honey comb mesh styled air dam on the front bumper. 

  However, fog lights integrated on the air dam doesn’t really appeal much. Skoda could have made use of more chrome on the front to enhance its charm. While, from the side, the all new Octavia is as solid as before and now comes with a confidence inspiring crisp character lines running all the way from the shoulders to the taillamps. Its extended sliding roofline at the rear do reminds us of the old Octavia, but that can be the only resemblance as the new gen Octavia is all-in-all a brand new car. Step on to the back and you will find much sharper and detailed Skoda‘s C-shaped tail lamps which fits perfectly to the sharp raised crease on the bootlid. This luxury sedan further carry forwards the old Octavia charm with a huge tailgate that lifts the rear windscreen along with the boot lid, that was seen in its previous generation as well.
