2013 Skoda Octavia live in action
2013 Skoda Octavia was in the news for so long. Recently, a video has been launched, which shows 2013 Skoda Octavia live in action. This video clearly gives out the changes that the car features on the outside. This refreshed sedan from Skoda is becoming the first Skoda sedan that will get the base of MQB platform by Volkswagen. Also, 2013 Octavia has many similarities with Seat Leon and new Volkswagen Golf. If we compare the new Skoda Octavia with the ongoing model, the 2013 Octavia is bigger and much more comfortable.
Also the overall weight if the new one is less that the older model. Being bigger in size has automatically improved the interiors and made the cabin roomier and airy. However, the company hasn’t touched the engine department and kept the same engine options as before, comprising of turbo petrol and turbo diesel engine. But a better performance is obviously expected.
