Details of the Skoda Octavia for Russia revealed


The Russian specification of the new Skoda Octavia will be characterized with the range of engines and transmissions. According to preliminary data, 150 hp. 1.4-liter Turbo 4 will be coupled with the Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission, which will replace the DSG 7-speed robot. The baseline 1.6-liter air breather will remain unchanged, Motor.ru portal reports.

After the change of the generations, the baseline Octavia will retain the old naturally aspirated 110-hp. 1.6-liter engine with manual and 6-speed automatic transmission. The modifications with a 1.4-liter 150 hp. Turbo-4 engine will be available with the Aisin 8-speed automatic transmission with torque converter.

Top versions of the Octavia will retain the turbo engine and the DSG-7 robotic transmission: the most powerful modifications with a 190-hp 2.0-liter engine will get a preselective transmission, but 2-liter liftbacks will come on sale later. The Combi estate cars will also take time to enter the Russian market. Officially, Skoda does not comment on the lineup of engines for the fourth generation Octavia of Russian production.  There is information that the new product will be on sale by the end of 2020, and the presentation of the local version is scheduled for 16 September.

The plant in Nizhny Novgorod stopped production of the third generation Skoda Octavia: dealers of the Czech brand are selling off already produced liftbacks. The global lineup of the Skoda Octavia has recently been replenished with the RS turbocharged versions and the G-Tec ultra-efficient bi-fuel modification, but such liftbacks will not reach Russia in the near future.
