Facelift coming for Skoda Octavia

In 2019, Skoda lifted the current Octavia on the podium, the fourth generation of the model since Skoda became part of the Volkswagen Group. Skoda’s space wonder and the technical brother of cars such as the Volkswagen Golf and Seat Leon was fitted with a significantly sharper-cut suit than its predecessor when changing the generation. The Czech Republic has a facelifted Octavia in the development rooms, a facelifted version that was publicly recorded during test work. Skoda Octavia Combi (facelift) The previous generation Octavia received a serious facelift in 2017 in which the previously one-piece headlight units were replaced by split copies that gave the model a distinct face. The current model does not go under the knife as fiercely as the previous Octavia. In fact, the adjustments seem to remain quite subtle. Skoda gives the Octavia new bumper work both front and rear and apparently minor changes are made to the headlights and taillights. If there’s one area where cars are rapidly aging these days, it’s infotainment. You can therefore count on the Octavia to make strides in this area as far as software is concerned. In March, Skoda showed an image of an as yet unknown new model, an SUV-like one that has been drawn according to Skoda’s new ‘Modern Solid’ design language. We don’t seem to see anything of that new house style on the renewed Octavia. Octavia in the Netherlands The Skoda Octavia is by far the best-selling Skoda model. Since the introduction of the first generation under the leadership of the Volkswagen Group in 1996, more than 111,000 units have been sold in our country over four generations. The Fabia follows in second place with about 87,000 cars sold. Over the years, with the exception of the last few years, the annual sales of the Octavia have only increased. While about 2,000 units of the first generation Octavia were sold annually, the second series introduced in 2004 managed to attract an average of 4,500 Dutch buyers up to and including 2012. The third Octavia, which appeared on the Dutch market in 2013, managed to entice an average of more than 7,000 people to purchase each year, although that average was considerably boosted by the sales results in 2014. Then Skoda managed to sell almost 14,000 Octavias in the Netherlands. In that year, Skoda had the 1.6 TDI Greenline on offer, a variant that was eligible for the then low addition rate of 14 percent. In other sales years, the third generation Octavia was good for roughly 6,000 sold annually. The current Octavia was good for 4,010 and 4,329 units in succession in 2020 and 2021. In 2020, the Octavia was still the best-selling Skoda model. In 2021 the model had to tolerate the electric Enyaq and this year both the Enyaq and Kodiaq are above the Octavia in Skoda’s sales statistics.
