ŠKODA continues the model offensive with the New ŠKODA Octavia Combi. A few weeks after the start of the Octavia hatch, the third-generation Octavia Combi celebrates its world premiere at the Geneva Motor Show from the 5th to the 17th of March, 2013.
New Octavia Combi continues ŠKODA’s model offensive. World premiere at the Geneva Motor Show in early March, 2013. “Heart of the brand” – sets new standards in the compact segment. Mid-class qualities for the price of a compact – “a class of its own”
The ŠKODA bestseller sets new standards in the compact segment and reaffirms more than ever its unique position in this class. The Octavia Combi has won everyone over with its unrivalled space, new design, functionality, innovative safety and comfort systems, fuel efficiency, many ‘Simply Clever’ ideas at a typical ŠKODA price/value ratio.
“The ŠKODA Octavia is at the heart of the brand and our most popular model by far,” says ŠKODA Chairman, Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland. He continues: “The Combi represents all good ŠKODA values and has a large share in the success of this model range. With the third generation, the Octavia Combi takes a huge leap forward. The car really is a class of its own; offering mid-class features at compact-combi prices.”
The design of the Octavia Combi is the epitome of clarity, precision and perfect proportions. “The new ŠKODA Octavia Combi is the perfect combination of form and function,” says Dr. Welsch.
The front view is identical to the new hatch. The clearly structured side view of the new ŠKODA Octavia Combi works through a dynamically flowing silhouette. Additionally, the closed, clear-cut side graphic is distinctively emphasized by the high Tornado line. The roofline of the Combi slopes gently towards the rear and passes elegantly over into the D-pillar. The rear lights extend far into the side rear section and are the final points of the tornado line.
The rear is also clearly and precisely designed. The new Octavia Combi is instantly recognisable as a ŠKODA from the back view because of the C-shaped taillights as well as the characteristic triangular elements in the tailgate. Just like the hatch, the ŠKODA Octavia Combi has two C-shaped light strips in each taillight which enhance the graphical impact.
The New ŠKODA Octavia Combi has grown significantly, boasting dynamic and elegant design. ŠKODA chief designer, Jozef Kabaň, and his team have redesigned the car from head to toe. Never before has a ŠKODA Octavia Combi been so dynamic and yet timelessly elegant, distinctive, sophisticated and confident on the road as the third generation of this bestseller. An outstanding amount of space, fuel efficiency, innovative safety and comfort systems as well as many ‘Simply Clever’ ideas make up the ŠKODA genes that distinguish the new Octavia.
