Geneva Live – 2013 Skoda Octavia Combi revealed
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
The 2013 Skoda Octavia Combi, an important inclusion in the Skoda Octavia lineup for Europe, has been unveiled at Geneva.
There is nothing surprising since Skoda had already released official images of the car online prior to its Geneva debut. The Octavia Combi adapts the same understated clean sheet design of its recently launched sedan brother.
The new Octavia Combi looks much more grown up and refined than the model it replaces and more importantly, the adaptation of the MQB platform made the station wagon a lot more roomier. The car is 45mm wider and 90mm longer than its predecessor.
