The All-New SKODA Octavia – Everything You Need To Know

The fourth generation SKODA Octavia is now available at Pulman SKODA, learn more about the features in our latest blog post…

The family car which just keeps on giving, the all-new SKODA Octavia is now available to order from Pulman SKODA and it’s even better than its predecessors. WhatCar? have rated the new Octavia a full five out of five stars in their review.

Technology & Features

The new SKODA Octavia is equipped with the latest technology and features* to ensure your journeys are smooth, comfortable and safe.

The Virtual Cockpit shows all of the important information and data that you need when driving at a glance just in front of the wheel, replacing where the old-fashioned instrument dials usually are. Key driving data which you’ll be able to see is driving speed, time and even map routes.

The infotainment system allows you to change the volume, zoom in on navigation, change screens and radio stations all with a simple touch slider so you needn’t touch the actual screen. Plus, from the infotainment system you can select your personal profile when you’re the driver if you share your car with multiple family members. The system will remember your seat preference, dashboard layout and even preferred air conditioning level. All of this information is synced with your SKODA ID account.

The new SKODA Octavia is equipped with front assist with predictive pedestrian protection. This safety feature not only warns you when you’re too close to the car in front but also alerts you via visual/audio signals if a pedestrian steps in front of your car, with a slight jolt on the brakes too.

Parking your SKODA Octavia has never been easier thanks to the rear view camera which is hidden discreetly under the bonnet handle. In addition to this feature, park assist takes away the stress of parallel and bay parking, by detecting a space and slowly but automatically parking into the spot for you!

The new Octavia is not shy on space either. Whether you’re travelling for business or with family there’s plenty of room for passengers and luggage. The Octavia Hatch offers 600 litres which increases to 1,555 litres with the rear seats folded. The Octavia Estate offers 640 litres increasing to an impressive 1,700 litres with the rear seats folded. There’s also a convenient ‘remote folding seats’ button which with a press of the button, folds down the rear seats.

There’s a host of thoughtful touches which you’ll find both on the inside and outside of the new SKODA Octavia. The reading light has an adjustable light intensity option, so if you’re a night owl passenger, you’ll easily be able to read your book! There’s also an integrated funnel for the washer fluid top-up area under your bonnet, this means no more spillages. One last handy feature we’ll mention (although there’s many more) is the umbrella storage compartment; in true British weather-style, you leave the house when it’s sunny and arrive at your destination in the pouring rain. The umbrella compartment is located in the driver’s door and has been designed to drain away any water when you place the umbrella back in!
