No changes to the 1.4 TSI, 1.8 TSI and 2.0 TDI engines.
Skoda Auto India has revealed the 2017 Skoda Octavia (facelift) at the national media drive in Chandigarh. It will launch in the coming weeks priced very close to the current car which ranges between INR 15.83 Lakhs – INR 23.35 Lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi).
Changes made to the exterior include a new quad-headlamp setup which is halogen-powered with LED DRL strips in the base Ambition grade, and LED-powered in Style and Style Plus grades, along with Adaptive Front System, Light Assistant, headlight washers, CrystalGlo LED DRLs and corner function with front fog lights. Also new are 16-inch Alcatras alloy wheels in the top-end Style Plus, and 16-inch Velorum alloy rims in Ambition and Style grades.
All variants get dual tone Onyx-Ivory front dashboard and door panels along with Style Beige upholstery. The Ambition and Style grades get Cool Brushed decor on the front centre console and door panels while Style Plus has Dark Brushed decor in the same areas. Also new is an 8.0-inch touchscreen Proximity Sensor-based infotainment system standard in both Style and Style Plus grades, although the latter exclusively comes with Amundsen navigation.
The engine lineup continues with the 110 kW (150 PS) 1.4-litre TSI 4-cyl petrol with a 6-speed manual, 132 kW (180 PS) 1.8-litre TSI petrol with 7-DSG automatic and 105 kW (143 PS) 2.0-litre TDI diesel which is paired with either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed DSG automatic.
