Skoda Octavia Pro with extended wheelbase revealed in China – DRIVE

The Pro nameplate is not a substitute RSthough the forked release suggests this. Most likely, the badge simply separates the new car from the old one remaining in the window.

The SAIC Volkswagen joint venture has certified the “fourth” Octavia in China, which will enter the local market in the first half of 2021. It follows from the document that the liftback is called Octavia Pro and surpasses its European counterpart both in terms of body length of 4753 mm (+64) and in terms of wheelbase of 2730 mm (+44). “Stretching” is amazing, because the “third” Octavia in China has an ordinary 4675 and 2686 mm.

Width – 1788 mm (-41), height – 1469 (-1). There is nothing unusual about the grille and LED headlights, but the front bumper is taken from the Octavia RS, albeit in a simplified form. An inconspicuous increase in length will go, as usual, to the legs of the rear passengers. The knee gap of 78 mm, you see, was not enough.

Gasoline turbo engines 1.2 TSI (116 HP, 200 N • m) and 1.4 TSI (150 HP, 250 N • m) kept their posts together with a six-speed “mechanics” and a seven-band “robot” DSG. The Chinese Octavia has a front-wheel drive. The basic aspirated 1.5 MPI (113 HP, 145 N • m) dropped out of the range, which means that prices will rise. While they are in the range of 99,900-149,900 yuan (1.12-1.68 million rubles). Demand has been declining since 2017. If in 2019 66,806 units were sold, then in ten months of 2020 only 21,111 units were sold.
