The Skoda Octavia, the brand’s most successful model here and a multi-million seller around the world, celebrates its 60th anniversary.
Originally designed to bring affordable and high-quality motoring to the widest possible audience, Skoda says the design and engineering philosophies behind the Octavia remain the same today.
First launched in 1959, the Octavia remains Skoda’s top-seller six decades later, with a range that includes nine equipment levels, 14 engine and transmission options, and two body styles.
Over the years, different versions of the Octavia have proven it is one of the most adaptable and practical cars on the market.
A great performer - it set world land speed records - it has been transformed into a title-winning rally car, and has become one of the most trusted cars used by emergency services.
