Before the current model Skoda Octavia bows out to make way for the 2017 Octavia facelift, the manufacturer has launched a special edition. Called the Skoda Octavia Onyx Limited Edition, the sedan features a whole host of cosmetic updates. Contrary to what was being reported until last month, the Limited Edition model won’t be the Octavia Black Edition. The Czech car maker has not released any images yet. However, Skoda India has been circulating teaser images of the upcoming special edition Octavia via its social media pages and website. The Octavia ONYX edition will be sold across all authorized ŠKODA dealerships and will be available for a limited period.
Commenting on the new edition, Mr Ashutosh Dixit, Director – Sales & Marketing Škoda Auto India Pvt Ltd said, “The Škoda Octavia Onyx edition continues its journey with the success of the Octavia model range in India. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA offers more safety and comfort features compared to products from higher segments. The ONYX edition combines typical strengths of the brand; safety, design, engineering, spaciousness & ‘Simply Clever’ features thus making the Octavia a compelling proposition.“

Skoda Octavia Onyx Limited Edition – Design Review
The clean lines and neat surfaces of the Octavia will benefit from a slew of sporty design touches. There are bits like new 16 inch rims, black wing mirrors, body colour spoiler, etc on offer. The Onyx Edition will help infuse some freshness with the Octy. This will help the Octavia soldier on unfazed before the facelift is launched here.
The interiors remain the same. The cabin is fairly feature laden with bits like a high quality Bolero audio system. The Octavia has always impressed us with the space on offer. It currently offers one of the most luxurious interiors in its segment.
