Mladá Boleslav, 9. April 2021 – ŠKODA is adding even more models to its comprehensive OCTAVIA roster and is now offering the fourth generation of its best-seller in a new, dynamic SPORTLINE version. Slotting in between the Style trim level and the sporting OCTAVIA RS range topper, this variant impresses with black exterior elements, a three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel as well as sports seats with integrated headrests and ThermoFlux upholstery. The ŠKODA OCTAVIA SPORTLINE hatchback and COMBI estate can both be ordered with the optional DCC Dynamic Chassis Control and innovative assistance systems. The wide range of powertrains comprises diesels, petrol engines, mild-hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions as well as the OCTAVIA G-TEC powered by compressed natural gas (CNG).
The exterior of the new OCTAVIA model is defined by the black elements familiar from the SPORTLINE variants for other ŠKODA model series. The distinctive front spoiler, the frame of the ŠKODA grille and the ŠKODA wordmark on the tailgate all come in gloss black. In the equally gloss black rear diffuser, a chrome trim element adds a visual highlight. The hatchback also boasts a black rear spoiler. Standard equipment for the OCTAVIA SPORTLINE includes 17-inch Pulsar alloy wheels with a polished black finish. Available as an option: black metallic 18-inch Vega wheels and, exclusive to the SPORTLINE, the 19-inch black polished Taurus alloys. The front wings are adorned with SPORTLINE badges.
