2017 Skoda Octavia Facelift Flashes Split Headlights and Extra Tech
Not sure about the headlights, though
Although the split headlights recall the uninviting 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class W212, Skoda tried to sweeten the deal for the Czech sedan with full-LED technology.
Otherwise, there are minor corrections applied on the grille, front, and back spoilers, plus a larger logo and alloy wheels with new design patterns available in sizes ranging from 16- to 18-inch.
Three infotainment systems are available on the tech side - Bolero, Amundsen, and Columbus. The latter is based on a 9.2-inch display and represents the tip of the pyramid with WLAN hotspot, SIM card module, and LTE internet connection.
Skoda also stepped up Octavia's game with new safety credentials: predictive pedestrian protection, blind spot detection and rear traffic alert just to name a few.
Other gewgaws include a customizable key, heated steering wheel, bottle holders, and a removable flashlight available only for the Skoda Octavia estate.
As an option, Skoda can provide the Dynamic Chassis Control (DCC) system, which allows the driver to alter the steering and damping settings via three modes: Comfort, Normal, and Sport.
Prices are still unknown, but we should know more on the topic as the revised 2017 Skoda Octavia (sedan and wagon) will reach the market later this year, with deliveries expected to commence early 2017.
