The next-gen Skoda Octavia looks much sportier and draws design cues from the Superb. The interiors have also been completely revamped for a more premium feel.
Skoda just released a sketch of the next-gen Octavia a couple of days ago as a teaser. The all-new Skoda Octavia is slated for its global unveil on November 11, 2019 but ahead of its official debut, a new leaked image has surfaced the internet revealing much of the design details of the next-gen Skoda Octavia.
The leaked image strongly adheres to the previous sketch released by Skoda. As you can see from the image itself, the car draws inspiration from its elder sibling, the Superb. The split headlamps are gone and in place come a much sleeker and sharper LED headlamp unit that sit on either side of a more prominent grille. The bumper has also been redesigned for a more sportier look and prominent air intakes along the fog lamps.
On the sides, the new Octavia gets a prominent shoulder line, running the length of the car, with a second character line running along the lower doors between the wheel arches. The overall profile of the car remains the same but it gets new alloy wheels. However, the rear end of the car is still yet to be revealed.

We also do not have any images of the interiors of the next-gen Skoda Octavia. However, from what we have seen from the spy shots of test mules, the next-gen Octavia will gets a completely redesigned interior dashboard design which has taken inspiration from the Vision X concept that was on display at the 2018 Geneva motor show. The cabin features a very minimalistic design with a new touchscreen infotainment system atop the centre console.
The new Octavia is based on Volkswagen group’s MQB platform and is expected to be larger and more spacious than its predecessor. Under the hood, it will feature a range of turbo-petrol and diesel engines, along with mild-hybrid technology. The new Octavia will be unveiled next month and will go on sale internationally by early 2020. It is expected to arrive in India sometime late next year and will likely be offered only with a petrol engine. Transmission options will continue to be a choice of manual and DSG automatic units, as with the Octavia currently on sale.
