Skoda has revealed the Octavia facelift. Sporting a revised appearance and a range of new features, this marks the first time that the fourth-generation model has received a facelift following its unveiling in 2019.

The Octavia is the brand’s best-selling model to date with over seven million units sold, since it debuted in 1996.

On the cosmetic front, the Octavia facelift only gets a few subtle tweaks and maintains most of the design elements of the pre-facelift model. The most noticeable change is on the front end, where it now gets second-generation matrix LED headlamps with a new design for the daytime running lamps. The vehicle now sports the new two-dimensional Skoda logo. Other cosmetic changes include a redesigned front air intake, along with a range of new colour options and alloy wheel styles. The sportier Octavia RS, too, has been updated with new wheel designs and interior tweaks.

The sportier Octavia RS guise has also been updated.

Inside, the Octavia facelift maintains the same layout but can now be had with a larger 13-inch infotainment screen along with a range of new upholstery and trim options. The RS variant features sports seats and black upholstery. As standard, the car gets a 10-inch infotainment screen and digital instrument cluster with a ChatGPT integrated voice assistant along with dual-zone climate control. It is now also equipped with a 15-watt wireless phone charger capabilities with a built-in cooling function.

The Octavia facelift will likely make its way to India later as a CBU

While it is not official, we expect the Octavia facelift to make its way to Indian shores sometime later this year or early next year. However, expect the car to only be shipped in as a CBU, resulting in a hefty price tag.
