Skoda has launched the 2017 Octavia facelift in India at a starting price of Rs 15.49 lakh (ex-showroom India). This is the first major update to the third-gen Skoda Octavia since it was introduced in 2013.

 

What’s new in the 2017 Octavia?

The most noticeable exterior update is the split LED headlamps that replace the bi-xenon setup found in the older version. The front and rear bumpers have also been redesigned. When compared to the older sedan, there’s a difference in the layout of the tail lamp assembly as well.

Changes on the inside include a larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and ambient lighting. The 2017 Octavia also gets hands-free parking added to its feature list, a first in its segment. While the engine and transmission options remain unchanged, the rear track of the 1.8-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel version of the Octavia has been widened. The wider rear track has helped Skoda give these versions a revised rear suspension setup. To know more about the major changes made to Skoda’s premium sedan, read our first drive review here.

The Skoda Octavia facelift continues to draw power from the same petrol and diesel engines as before. The petrol range consists of two turbocharged engines - the 1.4-litre TSI and the 1.8-litre TSI that produce 150PS and 180PS of maximum power, respectively. The smaller engine is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission while the 1.8-litre engine is paired to a 7-speed DSG dual-clutch automatic transmission. The only diesel option available is the 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine which puts out 143PS of maximum power. This engine comes with two transmission options - a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed DSG transmission.
