2014 Skoda Octavia Review

With specifications lists that punch well above their weight and each offering vast interior acreage, you’d think the mid-size segment had already shown us everything it could offer – but that was before the launch of the all-new Skoda Octavia. Often ridiculed for being priced too close to its Volkswagen cousin, Skoda has spent its time lagging behind the segment’s power brands from Japan and Europe. But with the arrival of the 2014 Skoda Octavia, all that changes.

There are now two petrol engines and one diesel, so the fully turbocharged, four-cylinder Octavia powertrain line-up includes a 103kW/250Nm 1.4-litre petrol; a larger 132kW/250Nm 1.8-litre petrol, and finally a 110kW/320Nm 2.0-litre diesel. The entry-level Octavia is reasonably equipped too, boasting standard features such as Bluetooth phone and music streaming, four-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel, power windows, remote central locking and seven airbags.

There’s also dual-zone climate control, auto lights and rain-sensing wipers and folding side mirrors. Available with both Ambition Plus and Elegance grades is the Tech Pack, which adds further equipment upgrades including bi-Xenon headlamps, adaptive cruise control, keyless entry, automatic parking assist, front assist, light assist and city emergency brake.
