Skoda Octavia has an elegant interior. Most of the touch points on the doors and dashboard are made from soft-touch materials for a premium feel. Skoda claims that the central chrome strip reflects the shape of the car’s grille. LED ambient lighting is also available in ten colors and lighting scenarios.

The new generation Octavia has received a minimalist interior in every detail. Designers preferred physical buttons over touchscreens and touchpads.

When it comes to how the new Octavia is perceived by passengers, it is important to note that the car, for the first time in the Czech lineup, is equipped with specially designed Ergo seats with massage function.

The driver is provided with a new two-spoke heated steering wheel, equipped with new control buttons and wheels that allow you to control more than 14 functions of the car. The instrument panel has also been updated with a freestanding center display.

Borrowing a lot from other vehicles in the Volkswagen Group, the Octavia comes with an unprecedented level of equipment, including some previously unavailable features. Such equipment is an additional head-up display used to transmit information about speed, navigation, detected traffic signs and activated driver assistance systems directly to the windshield.

For the Octavia, Skoda has produced four infotainment systems with screen sizes ranging from 8.25 to 10 inches. Base-spec vehicles get a separate 8.25-inch central touchscreen display compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Other trim levels feature a 10-inch screen, gesture control and access to Skoda’s digital assistant Laura, which can control on-board systems in six different languages.

You will always be connected thanks to the built-in eSIM. For the convenience of the driver and passengers, the Skoda Octavia has five USB-C ports and wireless charging. Other major model upgrades include a three-zone climate, offered for the first time in the lineup, and an optional keyless entry system that Skoda calls Kessy.

Given the increased external dimensions of the Skoda Octavia, the cargo space has also gained more volume. The Combi’s boot volume has increased by 30 liters to 640 liters. The liftback with its 600 liters is 10 liters more than the previous version.

It is worth repeating how practical this Octavia is. The 600-litre trunk is only 40 liters smaller than the station wagon, and there’s plenty of room for rear-seat passengers.

Specifications

As noted above, after the update, the Czech liftback moved to the base of the updated MQB Evo “trolley”, which is the main one for the eighth generation of the Volkswagen Golf hatchback. For the new generation Skoda Octavia, the manufacturer offers three options for gasoline engines: one is a 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine that produces 110 horsepower, and the other two are turbocharged – with a volume of 1.4 and 2 liters (they work with a return of 150 and 190 “horses”). Regardless of the type of engine, the Octavia is exclusively equipped with a front-wheel drive system, but the choice of available transmissions is quite wide. In this case, the buyer can consider the option with a 5 or 6-speed manual gearbox, a six or eight-speed “automatic”, as well as a 7-speed manual transmission. Depending on the liftback equipment option, its acceleration to the first “hundred” can be achieved in 12.4-7.4 seconds, and the level of gasoline consumption is 6.9-5.5 liters.

As for the dimensions and main parameters of the updated Skoda Octavia, here we can note:

  • Body size – 4689x1829x1485 mm.
  • The distance between the axles is 2686 mm.
  • Clearance – 158 mm.

Options and prices

For Skoda Octavia 2022, configurations and prices are able to offer 3 versions and the same number of gasoline engines and transmission types. In various combinations, you can get 14 versions that differ in the level of equipment and technical characteristics.

Active Plus

The initial configuration of Active Plus with aspirated 1.6 and a manual transmission is estimated at 1,542,000 rubles. For this money, the buyer of a Skoda Octavia in a new body receives: air conditioning, a multimedia complex with an audio system, power windows, heated front seats and exterior mirrors with a servo, steering column and driver’s seat height adjustment, LED headlights, a 60/40 folding rear sofa and start the engine with the button. Active and passive safety is supported by: 4 airbags, stabilization system, tire pressure sensor, telephone hands free and bluetooth. A 1.4 turbo unit and an automatic transmission are offered for an additional price.

Ambition Plus

The Ambition Plus variant (see tables) gives the 2022 Octavia such useful things as 2-zone climate control, support for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto protocols, light and rain sensors, parking sensors, air curtains for both rows of seats, cruise control , fog lights and aluminum rims. Starting with this version, it becomes possible to order a top-end 2-liter turbo engine with a robot for Skoda.

Style Plus

The flagship Style Plus equipment will additionally provide the new Skoda with the presence of a leather interior, a navigation system, a heated steering wheel and monitoring of “blind” zones. Options include power front seats with memory settings, a premium audio system, a rearview camera, an automatic parking system, adaptive headlights, a preheater and a power tailgate. Body paint with a metallic effect is offered only for a surcharge to the price, regardless of the status of the trim levels.

Security

Octavia provides a high level of security. The results of the crash test showed that only with a frontal impact, the driver and passengers can be seriously injured. Such a high level of security is largely due to the fact that the Czech model is equipped with many active systems and assistants. In addition, in Europe, the Octavia is equipped with a hood that rises slightly in the event of an impact with a person, which reduces the risk of injury to pedestrians in the event of a collision.

Included with the liftback is a special system that, in the event of a separation of the wheels from the road during maneuvering, tightens the seat belts and closes the windows. It increases the level of security when driving on a dirt road. This is facilitated by several sensors that monitor the risk of a collision.

Handling and maneuverability

Thanks to a well-tuned relatively stiff suspension, the Octavia’s handling is not only eminently safe, but can also be a lot of fun when driving actively. Moreover, this applies not only to the top options with a rear multi-link suspension, but also to Skoda with a semi-independent beam. Also of note is the transparent reactive action on the steering wheel, which helps to better feel the car.

Even despite the fact that liftbacks are produced in Russia with a package for bad roads, which has a clearance increased to 158 (+15) mm, this is still not enough to talk about serious off-road capabilities. The situation could be changed by setting up the production of all-wheel drive station wagons Scout, but this segment is at the mercy of crossovers Karok and Kodiak.

Handling and off-road performance

Skoda Octavia is equipped with an active transmission that supports 3 operating modes. Moreover, when switching between them, the behavior of the car changes significantly. In the first mode, the liftback starts to move smoothly, but “cuts off” the dynamics. This significantly reduces fuel consumption. Approximately the same characteristics the car acquires when connecting the mixed mode. And when Sport is connected, the response of the engine is aggravated, which, in combination with the active control of the box, improves the dynamics of acceleration.

The suspension also copes well with bumps, effectively damping the resulting vibrations. The basis of the Czech model, thanks to the changes made, provides good stability. Octavia roll is now minimal when cornering at high speed. Off-road, the Czech model “feels” not as confident as, for example, the Citroen C4 or Peugeot 408. But even here, Octavia did not reveal any noticeable shortcomings during the test drive.

Operation in the city and on the road

As a rule, motorists have a minimum of questions about the handling of the Skoda Octavia 2022 model year. After its update, the car has become much more stable and stable, and turns, even at high speed, the liftback passes with minimal rolls. Due to the fact that the car is produced in Russia, it is perfectly adapted to local operating conditions, and the suspension is able to easily “digest” any small bumps that appear on the road.

If we talk about the behavior of the car in conditions without

If we talk about the behavior of the car in off-road conditions, then it can easily cope with a flat primer or minimal off-road, but you can’t count on successful driving in difficult conditions on the road.

Technical stuffing and characteristics

Technical stuffing and characteristics

Since recently, the Russian market can not find Octavia with a base 110-horsepower 1.6-liter naturally aspirated MPI engine and “mechanics”. This configuration now uses only the Aisin AQ-160 6-speed “automatic”.

A machine with a manual MQ350 can now only have a 1.4-liter turbo engine with 150 hp. with., although he relies on his own automatic transmission – 8-speed Aisin AQ300-8F. The most powerful 190-horsepower 2.0-liter TSI in the range is equipped with a “robot” 7-DSG DQ500. The difference in average fuel consumption for modifications 1.4 TSI and 2.0 TSI is exactly 1 liter – 5.8 versus 6.8 liters. for 100 kilometers.
