    Octavia 2020

    2020 Skoda Octavia Launch Date

    The next-generation of Skoda Octavia is expected to launch in sometime early in 2021.

    Skoda is bringing the performance-focused RS245 to India early in 2020. So, we can’t expect Skoda to launch the next-generation Octavia soon after. The RS245 will keep the Octavia brand fresh for some time.

    2020 Skoda Octavia Price Range

    The next-generation Skoda Octavia could carry a price tag ranging from Rs. 20.0 lakh to Rs. 30.0 lakh (ex-showroom).

    2020 Skoda Octavia Engine and Transmission

    For the international market, the 2020 Octavia will get a bunch of different engine options. The most likely candidates for India are:

    • 1.5-litre turbo petrol with 6-speed manual transmission (150PS and 250Nm)
    • 1.5-litre mild-hybrid turbo petrol with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (150PS and 250Nm)
    • 2.0-litre turbo diesel with 6-speed manual transmission (150PS and 340Nm)
    • 2.0-litre turbo diesel with 7-speed dual-clutch automatic (150PS and 340Nm)

    For the petrol manual transmission, these figures are similar to what the 1.4-litre petrol engine offers. The 2020 Octavia doesn’t get the 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine and the 2.0-litre turbo petrol isn’t available in 2-wheel drive mode. So, expect similar performance from the petrol automatic as well. The current Octavia has a 180PS 1.8-litre turbo petrol engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic.

    The 2.0-litre diesel engine will continue with the next-generation Skoda Octavia with 150PS and 340Nm. It’ll also come with the same transmission options - a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The current Skoda Octavia diesel has a 6-speed automatic.

    2020 Skoda Octavia Fuel Efficiency

    As per the European test cycle (NEDC), the Skoda Octavia with a 2.0-litre turbo diesel and 7-speed automatic delivers a fuel efficiency figure of 27.7kmpl. The 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine with a 6-speed manual transmission runs 20.4kmpl on the same NEDC test. The figures for other engine transmission combinations will be revealed later.

    2020 Skoda Octavia Features

    The international version of the 2020 Skoda Octavia comes with a lot of features like adaptive cruise control, advanced collision avoidance system, and such, but we probably won’t get these features. However, the following features from the new Octavia may make it to the India-spec Octavia:

    • 10.25-inch colour LCD instrument console (virtual cockpit)
    • 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Carplay
    • 2-spoke steering wheel
    • Massage seats
    • Canton sound system
    • Head-up display
    • LED headlights
    • USB C ports
    • Full colour LED ambient lights
    • Electronic parking brake

    We can also expect it to have features like:

    • Electrically-adjustable front seats
    • Sunroof
    • Cruise control
    • ESP
    • 6 airbags
    • Hill-start assist

    And more features that we’ve come to expect from a car in its class.

    2020 Skoda Octavia Competition

    The Skoda Octavia competes with Honda Civic, Toyota Corolla Altis and Hyundai Elantra.
