Design

The teaser does not offer a clear look at the car; it only shows a silhouette of the model. From the silhouette, one can decipher that Octavia facelift has been updated with new LED headlight units that will now come with a V-shape design. Other design updates could be a new grille and bumper at the front, redesigned alloy wheels on the sides, and reworked LED taillights.

In its facelifted avatar, Skoda Octavia is likely to get a 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine with hybrid powertrain, as well as a 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol unit with a mild-hybrid version.

Octavia to return to India?

Skoda is yet to reveal if the 2024 Octavia will come to India as well. The development, if it happens, will mark the return of the Octavia brand to the country after it was discontinued here in April 2023.
