Skoda is quite delighted with the new product launches over various markets and, some aggressive sales plans for the near future. To beef up its lineup further, the Czech based carmaker is now confirmed of going the coupe way with the new Octavia (in conceptual form) by next Geneva Auto Show.
There is ample of time for the carmaker to work on, while only a thin layer of information is been landed on the reporting-dial. It is reported to be based on four-door coupe version, and the Volkswagen’s modular MQB platform to be riding underneath it. Octavia’s bold triangular LED headlamps and similarly-shaped tail lamps, alongside its sophisticated creases across the body with the low roofline, which earlier too resembled like a coupe, is expectedly asked do the job for new Octavia to go seamless into a coupe variant. Large wheels to just finish off the tint of regarded look, left by the other tweaks.
Engine specification to be varied in between 1.4L TSI and 2.0L turbodiesel worth of 140hp and 150hp respectively. The option of manual and an automatic gearbox will also be there to choose from.
While a range-topping vRS-variant said to arrive later on the paddock at a further part of the plan, along with a GTI-borrowed 2.0L four-cylinder of 220hp. A diesel engine of 2.0L (TDI) with 184hp engine will beef up the lineup with leaving no gap empty for competitors to barge upon.
