2018 Skoda Octavia
2018 Skoda Octavia is under a big rumor. Everything started when a British magazine mentioned that they have the images of its facelift exclusively. As in fact, only some E-Class headlights are edited. Many reputable sites also mentioned that if it comes to be true, there will be a good option for buyers to anticipate its coming instead of purchasing the previous model since this future car will be launched with major redesigns. It sounds like the company want to follow the Superb and Kodiaq that shows the new look for Skoda design.
The first thing that we should highlight is that its body styles. There are a lot of the parts on its bodywork that should be tested. The case is a bit similar to Golf. The test should be done for sedan, wagon and RS models even if we have never seen the facelift of 2018 Skoda Octavia, but there is no surprise for that. As what we know, Skoda perhaps puts off the road testing by using their own facilities which are quite away from spy photographers. Its previous model was designed as the first MQB cars along with SEAT Leon, Audi A3 and Golf. We must admit that the previous generation was released with drastic facelift. It was a boxy sedan in 2004 but today, it turned to be something really great. They might keep some cosmetic details in 2017 such as new double headlight arrangement with LED running lights, modified mask and redesigned rear end in new C-shaped design taillight.
2018 Skoda Octavia must be launched with higher level of quality materials, more color options, improved infotainment system, several new safety systems and the last is better driver assistance compared to the previous model.
Up to now, no exact details for the engine but we think it is quite possible for 2018 Skoda Octavia to get new engines. They replaced TSI engine 1.2 with Skoda 1.0, we think the company can get rid of 1.6 TDI as well and replace it with TDI 1.4. Another possibility is that the 1.4 will be replaced with SI 1.5 that is from Volkswagen.
We bet that the new 2018 Skoda Octavia will be released in the market after 2017. It is not vague to predict since the company doesn’t give any confirmation yet for all issues on it. Although it is too early to talk about the price, we think that the price depends on the models you pick.
