The feeling of being amazed is as rare as it is joyful. To keep being surprised by things we don’t have to change everything. Sometimes it’s enough just to change the point of view and almost immediately be welcomed by wonderful moments that were previously hidden.
The New ŠKODA Octavia is designed to create everyday amazement for those driving it. The car is a confident leap into the future, proven by its host of impressive features and equipment plus a range of thoughtful features large and small that we call Simply Clever solutions. Its generous space is comfortable for everything and everyone. Its dynamic new design is both elegant and modern at once. It’s also the most ecological Octavia ever, being over 100 kilos lighter than before. It’s powered by many invisible technologies and assistant systems that keep every journey safe, smooth and entertaining. It’s a car built to amaze you day after day, drive after drive
Your car and smartphone are now in perfect sync. With SmartLink, your radio display will mirror the information from your smartphone. All installed applications which are certified as safe for vehicles and compatible with MirrorLink™/Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are mirrored on the central display.
An exceptionally pleasant feature is the two-part electrically-adjustable panoramic sunroof of the wagon version, which will bring more riding enjoyment to the whole crew.
The whole sunroof can be covered with an electrically-adjustable net roll cover. The front section is a tilting and sliding panel powered by an electric motor, while the rear section is fixed in place. When the sunroof is slid back, a wind deflector slides forwards to reduce direct air flow into the interior and minimize noise.
Both parts are glazed with tinted glass to guarantee maximum interior comfort, ensuring that less light and heat penetrate the interior of the car.
There are modern safety assistants available upon request onboard the new ŠKODA Octavia Wagon such as the multi collision brake, Front Assistant with City Emergency Braking Function, the Driver Activity Assistant (fatigue detection), the Proactive Crew Protect Assistant or the Lane Assistant to keep you inside the lanes.
If an accident does occur, a comprehensive passive safety package ensures the best possible protection of the driver and passengers, including up to nine airbags. There leaves little to be desired in terms of comfort – thanks to numerous electronic comfort systems that have so far only been seen in higher class cars.
These include the new Adaptive Cruise Assistant, an automatic distance control, and the Intelligent Light Assistant, a high-beam assistant. There is also the completely new generation of radio and radio-navigation systems.

Say "huge space" and the ŠKODA Octavia Wagon comes immediately on your mind. Not many cars in the compact segment offers a longer interior (1,782 mm) and more kneeroom in the rear (73 mm). And there is ample headroom at the front (983 mm) and at the back (995 mm), too!
The electrically-controlled 5th door is opened and closed automatically so you don’t have to touch it, which you'll especially appreciate in rainy or winter weather.
It can be controlled from four different locations: button on key with remote control, button on centre console, internal button on 5th door panelling and external Softtouch button. You may adjust the upper door position individually according to your needs.
