2021 Skoda Octavia India Launch Confirmed For April
The 2021 Skoda Octavia will launch in India in April 2021. “For all those Octavia fans out there, we intend to launch all-new Octavia by the end of the next month, with deliveries beginning at the end of May,” said Zac Hollis, brand director at Skoda Auto India recently on Twitter.
The fourth-gen Octavia was unveiled worldwide at the end of 2019 and is built on a revised MQB platform variant of the VW Group with 19mm longer and 15mm wider than its previous platform.
In terms of styling, the quad headlight configuration of the outgoing model is designed for a more traditional arrangement that matches the larger Superb. The forthcoming Octavia has been spied on in India and appears to mostly retention the fashion indications of the foreign model.
The interior of the carriage has all modern features and the dashboard has a horizontal, digital screen. Skoda’s new double-speed steering wheel also appears with knurled scrolling wheels. In addition, a beige-to-black color scheme should be presented in the India-spec Octavia to assist with the sense of space inside the cabin.
The International Octavia has a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster Virtual Cockpit, an infotainment 10-inch Touchscreen Display, 3-zone climate-control system, car tech link, a digital assistant (called Laura), and a mobile charging system. Expect the majority of the kit to also match the Indian standard.
The 2021 Skoda Octavia will feed into a 7-speed dual-speed auto-engine box with a 2.0-liter TSI turbo-petrol engine, which produces 190hp. The new sedan, in line with the company’s decision to concentrate on the petrol segment by a change to BS6 specifications, would fail to be offered by its predecessor, who also had a 143hp, 2,0-Liter TDI engine in comparison.
By the end of 2020, the Octavia had planned to land in India but due to pandemics, it was postponed. Wait for the new price of Octavia for the Rs 18 to 24 lakh range (estimated, ex-showroom). Competitively, only the Hyundai Elantra can compete.
In 2021 Skoda went on a product assault. The Czech car manufacturer recently announced its Hyundai Creta fighter, the Kushaq production line, launched in June.
