According to WhatCar, Skoda's next generation Octavia (Laura in India) is on the anvil with a longer wheelbase. The overall length could stand at 4.8m providing a more comfortable rear seat experience, while the boot volume will be larger than rivals. This is another Skoda sticking to the brand's roots of offering spacious cars.
With the next generation Octavia, Skoda will offer a Mondeo sized car for the price of a Focus. The Skoda Superb used the same formula to become such a super hit. In India, it is the market leader and dwarfs some of the competing cars!
The smaller Rapid, after thorough revisions to its interior and the introduction of the notchback rear, will be introduced in Europe after the Paris Motor Show to play the new Octavia's younger sibling.
