Czech automaker Skoda Auto is going to launch limited black edition Octavia in India by next week and it would be priced Rs.15,000-Rs 20,000 more than the current top-end variant of Octavia. This new edition will be introduced only on the top variants (both petrol and diesel), and on the DSG variants. The company has teased the car in its Instagram account.
The Octavia Black edition will come with sporty styling bits like blacked-out alloy wheels, wing mirror housings and front grille and a rear spoiler. The interior of the car, however, will remain unchanged from that of the Style Plus versions.
Mechanically too the Black Edition is the same as the Octavia, with the fully loaded variants available in both petrol and diesel versions. The petrol car has an 180hp 1.8-litre turbo-petrol engine that comes with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox, while the diesel model gets a 143hp 2.0-litre motor that’s paired to a six-speed dual-clutch auto ‘box.
