Škoda releases first sketches of refreshed Octavia

PRAGUE: Škoda Auto has published exterior sketches of the refreshed Octavia.

The latest iteration introduces a refined exterior with new headlights, redesigned bumpers, and an updated Škoda grille. The digital global premiere is set for Feb 14.

Now in its fourth generation, the Octavia is receiving its facelift four years after the start of production.

The model will continue to be available as both a hatchback and estate. Additionally, the refreshed series will include Sportline and vRS versions.


The vehicle’s enhancements include advanced, second-generation LED Matrix beam headlights with a new lighting signature, designed to provide superior illumination of the road.

Additionally, they now incorporate Crystallinium, a unique crystalline element that imparts a distinctive blue hue to the interior of the headlight housing, further refining the vehicle’s aesthetic.

More than seven million units of the Octavia have been delivered to customers since the first modern generation was launched in 1996.

Holding the title of Europe’s most popular estate car since 2016, the Octavia has earned numerous awards and accolades from the international automotive press, including the renowned Red Dot Award for outstanding product design in 2020 – the third win for the series.
