Skoda Showcases the 2013 Octavia
|   Friday, January 18, 2013
The third generation 2013 Skoda Octavia has been launched and the popular hatch back model of the vehicle is the source of inspiration behind this new sedan design. Skoda believes this vehicle will break all previous records by entering into the 10 best selling vehicle's category when the vehicle has been launched by the end of the year. The vehicle has been designed to appeal to all classes of people irrespective of the fact whether they like vehicles or not.


The interior space of this vehicle has been increased and Skoda is longer the budget freak that it once used to be. With the recent launch of the Skoda Rapid, the Czech car makers have proved a point and the competitive pricing of this vehicle is a factor which makes it one of the best in its class.

The Volkswagen MQB platform has grown in size and the Octavia fits the dimension requirements perfectly. Compared to the current model of the Octavia, the vehicle is 45 mm wider and 90 mm longer and this makes this one of the most wanted designs of 2013. Skoda is proud of the fact that the Octavia has managed to set up a benchmark in its segment and the company wants to build a few other exotic vehicles.

The total interior length of the Octavia is 1782 mm and the overall boot capacity has been increased to 590 liters as compared to the Ford Mondeo's 528 while both the vehicles fall in the same category. Although the vehicle has seen some major upgrades, its rivals still remain the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and the Volkswagen Golf. The Octavia hits the British shores in March 2013 and this should make the British customers excessively happy.

Skoda has endowed the Octavia with precise designs and the bodywork has been done quite intricately. The sharp looking features of the Octavia are another positive aspect of this vehicle and the designers have paid extra attention to the extended interior. The chassis is quite strong and the torsion rigidity of the vehicle has been increased.

Aerodynamics and general ergonomics have also been upgraded and this makes the Octavia more desirable. The drag coefficient has been significantly reduced and performance wise, the Octavia is a whole new deal. The power to weight ratio of the vehicle is commendable. The boot is large enough to accommodate any objects that need to be carried and the hatch opening is massive while the ride is at a comfortable level. Skoda is also believed to have included a vast range of additional accessories and this could spice up the deal even more.

The design up front has been completely revamped and this makes the Octavia mean and aggressive. Space is not an issue and people over six feet can also be accommodated with ease. Shoulder space is adequate and this eliminates most of the problems faced by vehicles in this segment. Overall, the Skoda Octavia is a one of a kind machine and has all the features that a person can probably use.
