With the sales of the third-generation of the Skoda Octavia having surpassed 1 million units, the Czech company is preparing for 2017, the facelift of the model. The current Octavia was presented in the last month of 2012, so if the facelift is presented in 2017, the model will have done four full years on the market.
The facelift of the model is expected to have relatively significant changes, with its front part to be influenced by the new SUV of the company, having a LED bar for daytime running lights at the bottom.
According to the head of design of the brand, Jozef Kaban, the Octavia will remain the “heart of the range” of the company, despite the existence of the Kodiak, which will inevitably draw interest as it is an SUV.
Of course, there will be some minor changes on the interior, with Skoda offering a more sophisticated information and entertainment system and new security and assistive technology. Finally, the available engines of the car will be the same.
