With the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the country, lockdown is imposed in most parts of the country. With this, businesses are getting affected and especially the automotive industry since we were expecting new products to be launched. One of the most exciting launches is that of the 2021 Skoda Octavia that was supposed to be launched in April but now it has been shifted to June of this year.
Here, we share with you every detail that we know about the upcoming 2021 Skoda Octavia and share our opinion that will it be a worthy buy or not. Also, make sure you are a member of our exclusive 91Wheels Telegram group so that you connected to the world of the Indian Automotive Industry.
The new Octavia will only carry one single engine option and that is - a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, TSI petrol motor. Yes, this powerful motor is seen on the Superb and the upcoming Kodiaq too will see it. We expect it to make 190 hp with 320 Nm of peak torque. This engine will be mated to a 7-speed DSG unit.
The new Octavia will carry a larger 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with connected car technology of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A three-zone climate control, virtual cockpit system, cruise control, 360-degree camera, virtual cockpit, panoramic sunroof and other features.
The new Octavia will carry multiple airbags, an anti-lock braking system with electronic brake-force distribution, electronic stability control, brake assist and others. We can also expect front parking sensors on this one.
Price and Competition
We expect the prices to stick between Rs 18 lakh to Rs 23 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. This executive sedan targets the buyers of Hyundai Elantra.
