Supporters as well as opponents of Boleslava’s car manufacturer will agree that the newest Škoda Octavia has overcome the expectations and has brought a little bit more modern style to the still rather conservative European motor industry. The current Octavia can be directly compared to the previous generation of Audi A4 which is good news for the every driver who requires excellent driving standards and which will not limit any driving style. If the driver prefers a safe and comfortable drive or slightly aggressive,the new Octavia will be to his taste.
The most fundamental change in design of the new Octavia is the great exploitation of a practical minimalistic design.This is especially represented by the simplier design of the front and rear lights and by compacting the interior. Škoda has always taken care of a feel good factor for all its passengers, thus the interior is not aimed only at the driver. All substantial control components in the front part of the cockpit are leveled out to the middle panel so to be within easy reach for the fellow passenger. The driver will also appreciate the work of the Škoda designers who have gone for a simplistic and transparent use of the space behind the steering wheele. White indicators and digits on the black base make a modern and fresh impression, at the same time they provide a use in the safe control of driving at night. Different design variations,especially the Asian car manufacturers show themselves as not very practical,particularly during long night journeys.
At the car rental firm AVIS you will find the new Škoda Octavia with a 1.6-litre petrol engine TDI and 6-speed manual transmission. A part of the feature is a rich collection of technologies which take active or passive part in the driver and passenge safety.
