Skoda’s most popular model the Octavia is set to get a facelift and is set to launch on July 13.

Octavia lovers have been waiting for this car for quite some time now and will be thrilled to know that the pre-booking for the car has already begun. The new Skoda Octavia is based on the MQB platform, which underpins many Volkswagen and Skoda models in India.

The new Octavia has split headlights which are the first thing that you will notice when you look at the car. The headlamps are full LED.

Skoda has made minor changes to the bumper and the grille which helps the car get a new look altogether.

It has 16-inch alloy wheels which give it a sporty look and new design for the tail lights as well.

If we talk about the interiors then we can say that the car has a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system and ambient lighting with a multicolour option. The car also gets park assist which helps reduce parking effort as sensors help identify a parking space and line the car up.
