2020 Skoda Octavia Could Look Like This – And We Like It

The most recent spy shots of the next-generation Skoda Octavia have given us the best look yet at the upcoming model.

Unsurprisingly, the images also served as a good starting point for independent (or aspiring) designers in their quest to render the fourth-generation Octavia as accurately as possible.

Russian website Kolesa’s rendering artist is among the first to create CGIs of the 2020 Octavia, and we believe they are worth your attention.

Many were surprised (not necessarily happily…) by Skoda’s choice to put some awkward-looking headlights on the Octavia for the 2017 facelift. As it turns out, the Czech automaker took notice of the criticism and will ditch the split units for a more traditional design on the new model.

The artist envisioned the new Octavia with a larger grille inspired by the facelifted Superb, as well as a sportier rear end featuring new LED taillights narrower than those fitted on the current model and with a triangular outer edge. The side doesn’t look that different compared to the third-generation model, at least as far as these renderings of the five-door liftback body style are concerned.

The all-new Skoda Octavia will debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September in five-door liftback and estate guise. As with the upcoming VW Golf, Seat Leon and Audi A3, the new Octavia will use an updated version of the MQB platform.

Expect 1.0-, 1.5- and 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engines as well as 1.6- and 2.0-liter diesels. Mild hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions will also be available — a first for the nameplate.

    It looks too superbish. I mean it looks really good but I think it should differ a little bit from its bigger sibling.

  • Frase

    A fairly well educated guess. It looks nice enough, but it’s too much like the Superb. Just another sad reminder Skoda’s taking too many design cues from VW and Audi.

  • Sovereignty

    It could look like that, but it may also not look like that.

    Way too big, that grille

    • Loquacious Borborygmus

      Correct, you are. 😉

      Way too BMW, that grille

    Škoda, please do not end up like Cadillac, Audi, Jaguar Mercedes, and BMW where all of your cars have no visible differences.

    I always like a car to have both the cool-factor and the cute-factor. The present octavia had it well balanced, before the facelift at least. Just for comparison – Renault Megane IMO has too much cute-factor besides the cool factor. The present Superb and Kodiaq on the other hand have too much cool factor and lack the cute-factor – they just seem to be a bit too ice cold and sterile. Just like the Seats that look the most boring in the VAG range (no spanish temper, just rupers and compasses). I really hoped the Škodas and VWs would no move to the Seat-direction.

    There should be some round shapes and formations for the cute-factor. Luckily this render here even has all that (the side panels seem to be round enough, not only dominated by lines ), so it does look good. If only they had kept the [ ] rear lights. It was Škoda’s thing. Why lose it?
