Design sketches provide first glimpse of the interior concept for the new ŠKODA OCTAVIA

› The brand’s best-seller features a new two-spoke steering wheel

› World premiere of the new OCTAVIA on 11 November in Prague

Mladá Boleslav, 6 November 2019 – ŠKODA has released two design sketches providing the first

glimpse of the new interior concept for the upcoming OCTAVIA. The ŠKODA best-seller’s new

generation will, for the first time ever, feature a multi-level instrument panel and a new steering

wheel with two spokes. The world premiere of the fourth-generation ŠKODA OCTAVIA will take

place on 11 November in Prague.

The sketches released by ŠKODA Design show the redesigned instrument panel in the new OCTAVIA.

Topped by a large, free-standing central display, it’s composed of several layers whose lines and colours

reference the signature shape of the ŠKODA grille. The instrument panel’s visual width emphasises the

cabin’s generous sense of space. The fourth generation of the most popular model in ŠKODA history once

again provides even more interior space than its predecessor.

The new interior concept also includes a steering wheel with a two-spoke design featuring buttons and

scroll wheels that make for enhanced ergonomics. In the elegant and tidy centre console, a small rocker

switch has taken the place of the familiar selector lever. It uses shift-by-wire technology to electronically

communicate the desired DSG transmission setting. Also making its debut in the new OCTAVIA is the

Climatronic three-zone air conditioning system.
