The facelift Skoda Octavia is due for an India launch around July 10. The updated sedan will feature cosmetic updates both inside and out, which will see it adopting a quad-headlamp setup similar to that seen on the old Mercedes E-class.
It will get all-LED lights, a new infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system with WLAN connectivity for smartphone integration, two umbrellas tucked into the doors, a driver fatigue detection system, ambient lighting with adjustable colours, a rear-view camera and a hands-free parking system.
The mid-level variants will get additional airbags with the count set to rise to six from the current four. The top trim is expected to carry on offering eight airbags. The Octavia will also get larger 17-inch alloy wheels as opposed to the current 16-inches.
Under the hood, the car will continue to be offered with the range of 1.4- and 1.8-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines from the outgoing model, paired with a choice of manual or DSG automatic gearboxes.
