    Skoda Officially Reveals All-New and Sleeker Looking 2013 Octavia III

    DECEMBER 11, 2012

    It’s been a long road with plenty of scoops of both camouflaged prototypes and unmarked cars captured during testing and photo shoots, but now the time has come for Skoda to release its third generation of the successful Octavia series, which is seen here in liftback form with an estate model to follow next year.

    The 2013 Octavia is the first Skoda model to make use of the VW Group's new and lighter MQB platform that underpins several other compact cars, most notably the VW Golf Mk7 and the latest Audi A3 hatchbacks.

    Compared to the model it replaces, the new Octavia is 90mm longer at 4,659mm, 45mm wider at 1,814mm, and more importantly, the wheelbase has been stretched by 108mm to 2,686mm, something that mainly benefits the interior and space on the rear seats.

    As a result, front head room has increased by 8 mm, front elbow width by 39 mm and rear elbow width by 26 mm over the outgoing Octavia. According to Skoda, the Octavia offers a class-leading interior space in the compact segment with 1,782 mm of interior length and the largest boot with a volume of 590 liters.

    Besides being more spacious, the new model also sports a more premium feel both inside and out.

    imho that style could ALMOST be an 'international design' Mercury - just transplant the original Milan graphics and swap out some of those creases to bring a bit of Deco-Nouveau to the imitation Bauhaus...

    ...'course the Skoda design feature I like best (missing here) is the Superb's dual-back

    Lots of live shots:
