Ever since its official unveiling on the market a couple of months ago, the all-new 2017 Skoda Octavia facelift has been quite controversial in terms of design, the model not getting the appreciation it deserved from journalists worldwide.
Even so, here we are with the model heading towards the United Kingdom market, with full prices and specifications revealed in the media gallery below.
The 2017 Skoda Octavia will be offered in seven trim levels, with prices to start from £17,055 in the S entry-level trim, and going up all the way to £29,145 in the top of the line vRS Hatch and Estate. Each version comes with its own features and specifications.
The S and the SE variants come with standard features, such as three-spoke multi-function steering, driver fatigue sensor, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, front fog lights, acoustic rear parking sensors and the Driving mode selection, while the SE Technology variant adds front and rear parking sensors, 8.0-inch touchscreen navigation, Wi-Fi and more.
Moving to the SE L variant, this one comes equipped with full LED headlights and new finish for the grille, adding as well Alcantara and leather upholstery inside, front assist or colour trip computer. The special Lauring and Klement trims are also fitted with lots of other high-end features.
Finally, the top of the line vRS variants, both the hatch and the estate, mostly come with many of the aforementioned features, but add more power under the hood. We are looking here at a petrol burner with 227 horsepower in the estate, and a diesel in the hatch with 181 horsepower. Both are hooked to a standard manual transmission or an optional dual-clutch gear. Please find below the full prices and powertrains for all seven trim levels.
