Skoda Octavia SE, 1.6 TDi Diesel DSG Auto

The Skoda Octavia is a car that has become synonymous with the Taxi and Private Hire Trade. The Octavia is spacious, economical, handles well with stylish looks and has a massive boot space for all your passengers shopping and luggage.

Precision down to the last detail

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA’s look has been polished down to the last detail. In fact, these details are a direct allusion by the current design language to Bohemian crystal and the traditional Czech art of glassmaking.

The balanced proportions, the crisp edges, the way the light and shadow interact – all this creates a naturally beautiful and eye-catching impression of the car.

The four-eyed look and distinctive grille undeniably epitomise the ŠKODA brand, leaving no one in any doubt that this is an Octavia.

All Round Comfort

A spacious interior and comfortable seats are essential for an enjoyable drive. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA offers many ways to make travelling even more of a joy. Besides the electrically operated front seats and adaptive dampers, offering vehicle suspension in Comfort, Sport and Normal modes.

Room for anything you need to transport

Say “huge space” and the ŠKODA OCTAVIA springs immediately to mind. Not many cars in the compact segment offers a longer interior and more kneeroom in the rear. And there is ample headroom at the front and at the back, too!

There’s a full 590 litres of space for your luggage, rising to 1,580 litres when the rear-seat backrests are folded down. And if you fit your OCTAVIA with a folding front-passenger seat backrest, items up to 2.9 metres long can be transported in the interior.

Stay with the times – Be connected

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA offers the latest ways to connect your smartphone to the car.

SmartLink+ delivers an elegant connection between car and smartphone by supporting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Mirrorlink™ and SmartGate interfaces.

Assistants to enhance comfort and safety

The OCTAVIA features an impressive list of assistants which make mobility safer and more comfortable. Some of them will help you to spot a pedestrian crossing your path, while others are there to give you eyes in the back of your head; you can count on them on motorways as well as in the city… Put it simply – the OCTAVIA makes your day-to-day driving as comfortable and safe as possible.
