The outside of the Octavia looks fresher than ever with a completely redesigned front end. The newly designed grille and updated logo and lettering reflects the brands new CI with the front and rear bumpers giving the Octavia a stronger and more deliberate stance on and off the road. As a result of the new bodywork, the new Octavia is 9mm longer than the previous hatchback model.

Sticking with the front end of the car, the new design features second generation LED Matrix beam headlightsto deliver greater illumination for safety while on the road as well as cleverly shielding oncoming traffic from the glare of your lights. These headlights have also been moved to align with the top of the grille for an elegant and free-flowing appearance.

It's also great to hear that all base models of the brand-new Škoda Octavia will include headlights featuring LED technology as standard.

The new Octavia exterior is also coming with new exclusive colours and a new range of wheels too.The new 16” Matar wheels are aerodynamically optimised and come as standard with the Selection trim of the Octavia.
