The Octavia has served well, both India and the Skoda brand for almost ten years

Unlike the Laura and Superb, Skoda India has taken a stand to not upgrade the decade old Octavia to meet the stricter BS IV emission standards.

The 1.9 TDI Pumpe Duse diesel engine which it currently works on will not be upgraded on the Octavia either. VW is also phasing this engine out on the Jetta, which will get a new 2.0-liter CRDI engine.

Skoda Octavia will thus be available only in Bharat III cities.
