For its third generation, the Octavia gets its cleanest, most efficient engines yet and the full gamut of tech upgrades available on the new Mk7 Golf - all wrapped up in a more sober, Czech-style package. Skoda claims the new Octavia is the roomiest car in its class, with big emphasis placed on the extra 73mm of knee and 980mm of rear headroom. It's the 108mm increase in wheelbase that's made the difference inside. Although it's had a growth spurt, Skoda reckons the new Octavia is actually up to 102kg lighter than the car it replaces. Various assist and safety systems make their Skoda debut in the new Octavia, like adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam lights, traffic sign recognition and adaptive driving modes.
