The 2013 Skoda Octavia is likely to come up with two engine options- a 1.8-litre TSI turbocharged petrol engine and a 2.0 TDI turbocharged diesel engine. As per the word on the street, Skoda India might also fit a 1.6-litre TDI turbo diesel engine to keep the cost low. The 1.8 TSI engine will be upgraded and will now make around 175bhp in India. There will also be a new automatic version that is sure to attract a whole new set of customers. The base petrol, however, will be a 140bhp version of the 1.4 TSI, the engine seen on the VW Jetta, and is likely to be even more affordable. As earlier, there will also be two diesel versions. Both will use the same 2.0-litre TDI engine, but power outputs could be upped to 120 and 150bhp, respectively. Other engine options for the future include a 105bhp 1.6 diesel and possibly a 200-plus-bhp petrol vRS version, which could hit a top speed of 250kph.
