The new Skoda Octavia facelift is already on sale in the international market and will soon arrive in India. The first test mule of the updated Octavia has been spotted on Indian roads, with launch expected around the month of June 2017.
The 2017 Skoda Octavia has got mixed reviews following the controversial facelift. It gets a new front end with split headlights with LED daytime running lights, a revised front bumper and a redesigned grille. New C-shaped tail lamps add a fresh look to the rear.
The facelift Octavia is expected to use the same engines as before. The 1.4 TSI and 1.8 TSI petrol powerplants will be carried over along with the 2.0-liter TDI diesel unit. A choice of transmission will be available including a 6-speed manual, 6-speed DSG and a 7-speed DSG.
Price for the 2017 Skoda Octavia range will be revealed in a few months time.
