The new Skoda Octavia Estate, available in First Quarter 2005, will start at just £12,180, more proof of Skoda’s great value. The entry-level price is for the Classic 1.6 MPI, with its 102 bhp and fuel-efficient petrol engine and customers can order Estates now for delivery in the first part of the new year.
Available with a choice of three petrol and two diesel engines, the Estate will be fitted with the same three trim levels as the hatch. All the Estate models have roof rails as standard. Also standard in the new Octavia Estate are touches that make the car easier to use, like the luggage cover that rolls back automatically when you touch it anywhere across the width of the cover (even with your elbow if your hands are full of packages) and the shopping bag hooks in the luggage compartment.
The 4x4 version of the Estate is expected to make its UK debut in the First Quarter 2005 as well. Engine choices will be the 2.0 FSI 150 bhp petrol and the 1.9 TDI PD 105 bhp, the first time that the Octavia Estate will be available in the UK with a diesel engine. Prices and specification for the four-wheel drive estate are still to be finalised.
The Octavia Estate offers an exceptionally roomy interior and luggage compartment. With the seats in place, carrying capacity of 580 litres is top in its class, rising to 1,620 litres with the rear seats folded.
The new Skoda Octavia Estate offers an extraordinary combination of large interior, excellent handling and performance, loads of comfort, high build quality, and excellent value for money. All this adds up to another example of Skoda’s "extra bit of car".
