As the first car of the ŠKODA brand, the OCTAVIA comes with “by wire” technology designed for maximum comfort in vehicles equipped with automatic transmission. The Shift by Wire is controlled by a shift lever in a minimalistic design integrated in the centre console.
You won’t be the first person to search for the parking brake. The OCTAVIA features an electric version, increasing space, safety and comfort. Auto Hold function not available
Experience ultimate comfort thanks to the interior lights. LED ambient lighting, which can offer you many amazing colour options, includes lights running along the inside of the car, foot area illumination front and rear, door handle lighting front and rear.
We’ve packed a lot of clever features into the OCTAVIA wagon, but still left plenty of room for your luggage, 640 litres worth in fact, which can be extended to 1,700 litres by folding the rear seats.
Our clever engineers have developed a hands-on approach to help identify driver fatigue. Fatigue Detection◊ monitors your movement through the steering wheel. If it senses signs of fatigue, it triggers an audible and visual warning alerting you that you need to stop and rest.
A car that senses danger ahead? Now that’s clever. Front Assist with City Emergency Brake and Predictive Pedestrian/Cyclist Protection◊ uses a radar sensor to monitor the risks in front of you, alert you of any hazards, and will even brake on its own to help avoid collision.
Some forward thinking for when you’re going backwards. A rear view camera◊, helps you back out of your driveway with peace of mind and tackle those tricky reverse parks with confidence.
We hope you never need the eight airbags in your OCTAVIA. Located at the front, front side, curtain, driver’s knee area and interaction airbag, they help protect you and your loved ones in the event of a collision
Combining our smart car with your smartphone was always going to be a good idea. OCTAVIA featuring wireless Apple CarPlay® and wireless Android Auto™+ seamlessly connects compatible apps from your smartphone to your SKODA. So, whether you want to listen to music or receive turn-by-turn directions, you can do it all without touching your phone.
Just when you thought cruise control couldn’t get any smarter. Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)◊ features a radar sensor on the front grille, allowing it to automatically brake and accelerate to a speed and distance set by you. Did we mention it comes standard?
All that important information, which used to be shown on your dashboard gauges, is now brought to life in a dynamic digital display. This driving data includes, speed and fuel readouts – along with more contemporary features, like driver assist.
Loading has never been easier. Open and close your boot simply at the mere touch of a button on the remote, especially handy in unfavourable weather or your hands are tied with loads of shopping.
Now, let’s talk about what’s behind that pedal. Modern turbocharged engine with direct fuel injection – petrol TSI. Save fuel while retaining driving dynamics. And thanks to the turbocharging, there’s plenty of power in low RPM, where the engine is most commonly used.
