2020 Skoda Octavia specs
Entry-level SE First Edition grade will have more than enough standard equipment for many.
It includes climate control, an 8.25-inch touchscreen, five USB-C ports (including one in the rear-view mirror for connecting to a dashcam), LED headlights, ‘Virtual Cockpit’ electronic instruments and a safety pack that features lane-keeping assist and Autonomous Emergency Braking.
SE L First Edition costs from £25,150. These models get more chrome trim on the outside and bigger 17-inch alloys.
An enhanced Columbus infotainment system with 10-inch screen and online access is fitted, plus an electric driver’s seat, all-round parking sensors, keyless entry and adaptive cruise control.
SE Technology models are aimed at company car drivers. These have fuel-saving 16-inch aero alloy wheels, the Columbus infotainment system and ‘Laura’ voice control. Prices start from £22,640.
2020 Skoda Octavia engines
Three engine choices are available at launch. Petrol buyers take a 1.5-litre TSI 150, while diesel customers have a choice of either 115hp or 150hp 2.0-litre TDI.
The 2.0 TDI 150 has a DSG automatic gearbox as standard: the other two are six-speed manual.
Skoda says it will broaden the engine range available on the new Octavia throughout 2020.
