Skoda’s new Octavia Combi will be officially launched in Ireland on the 15th June. From launch it will be available across three specifications, Active, Ambition and Elegance along with manual and automatic transmission options, with prices commencing from €19,995.
Commenting on the launch of the new Octavia Combi in Ireland, Raymond Leddy, Head of Marketing, Skoda Ireland said, “We have increased specification levels for all versions of the new Octavia Combi. Additional airbags, Electronic Stability Control for increased safety and Stop Start Technology for reduced emissions and improved fuel economy are now standard features across the range. Stylish alloy wheels are now offered on all models with the exception of the entry Active model. In dimension terms, the new Octavia is wider and has grown in length by 9cm allowing for increased cabin space and luggage capacity. Despite this growth, the new Octavia Combi has in fact shed up to 100kg in weight compared to its predecessor. Less weight equates to better fuel economy and the new Octavia in its 1.6 TDI version consumes only 3.8 litres for every 100km travelled. Leddy added: This is only the beginning for the Octavia Combi with 4×4 versions, sporty RS alternatives and an 87 gram per kilometre Green Line edition for release before the end of 2013.”
