Skoda has stepped up efforts to develop next generation Skoda Octavia. For the first public appearance of the car, the car enthusiasts are eagerly waiting when they will have a glimpse of next generation Skoda Octavia. If the sources are to be believed, the company may display the next generation Skoda Octavia at the Paris Motor Show which will be organized this year, or it could be possible that the company will choose Geneva Motor Show which will be held in 2013. But, it will depend on the time which the company would take to develop the car.

The responsibility of designing the car was handed over to Jozef Kaban, who has various records of designing the cars. Skoda Yeti and Bugatti Veyron is an example of what Kaban is capable of. The sources said that the Skoda will not change the shape of the Octavia but it will look different. The new Skoda Octavia would be developed on VisionD concept.

Also, the company is planning to keep the size of the car equal to its rival car Ford Mondeo and it would be sold in the price equal to Ford Focus. The strategy behind the developing a car which is big is to give more comfort at lowest prices. The price of the car would be low and it would allow the customer to buy a car which is big but in low prices. To attract the customer, the Skoda has gone a step further and gave two choices to select from two body styles — liftback and wagon. The engine options which would be used in the cars have different capacities ranging from 1.2 L to 2 L liters. The next generation Skoda Octavia has improved fuel efficiency by reducing the weight of the car almost by 80 kgs but that has not affected the size of the car.
