The new Octavia will be available in the UK with four advanced engine options: two petrol and two diesel. Power outputs range from 105hp (1.2 TSI, 1.6 TDI CR) to 150hp for the 2.0 TDI 150hp model.
 
On sale in the UK from 16 March 2013, prices for Octavia start from just £15,990 with models separated into Skoda’s familiar three trim levels of S, SE and Elegance. Diesel versions start from only £18,040.
 
Buyers opting for the entry level S model get an additional £3,500 of value over the equivalent predecessor car. The mid-range SE is fitted with extra equipment worth £2,220, yet it costs a mere £1,200 more than the S model. It represents an enhanced value offering of £3,890 over the outgoing model.
 
The flagship Elegance model adds £1,850 in price over the same engine in SE trim, but comes with additional features worth £3,575. Compared to its predecessor, it has an additional value offering of £5,300.
