Skoda Octavia 2020 – Best Choice for Money
The new 2020 Skoda Octavia has grown further and, thanks to new proportions and the latest developments in Škoda’s design language, is even more emotive and dynamic than its successful predecessor.
In the newly designed interior, the OCTAVIA offers a new two-spoke steering wheel. The dashboard, which has also been redesigned, is modular and has been arranged in different levels, featuring a large, free-standing central display.
Never before has the Octavia been as efficient, eco-friendly and available with as many alternative powertrains as in its fourth generation. For the first time, the line-up includes a plug-in hybrid, the Octavia iV. Some of the petrol engines, which have been further optimized, are now equipped with innovative mild hybrid technology, while the diesel engines come from the latest EVO generation and emit up to 80 per cent less nitrogen oxide. The wide range of powertrains deliver from 81 kW (110 HP) to 150 kW (204 HP). With 17.7 kg of natural gas (CNG) in its tanks, the Octavia G-TEC can cover up to 523 km in its eco-friendly and efficient CNG mode. In the Octavia iV, a 1.4 TSI petrol engine and an electric motor deliver a combined power output of 150 kW (204 HP). With a capacity of 37 Ah providing 13 kWh of energy, the high-voltage lithium-ion battery allows for an all-electric range of up to 55 km in the WLTP cycle. The eTEC variants fitted with latest EVO-generation 1.0 TSI or 1.5 TSI petrol engines feature mild hybrid technology when equipped with DSG. Using a 48-volt belt-driven starter motor and a 48-volt lithium-ion battery, it is possible to recover brake energy, support the combustion engine by providing it with an electric boost, and to coast with the engine completely switched off. The EVO diesel engines apply a new ‘twin dosing’ exhaust gas treatment, where AdBlue is injected specifically in front of the two catalytic converters that are arranged one after the other. Dynamic Chassis Control including Driving Mode Select, which is optional, now comes with slider controls within the different driving modes, allowing the driver to change individual parameters such as the suspension, damping and steering characteristics or the operation of the DSG to suit their preferences.
