Skoda’s latest addition to the Octavia range, the Soleil is now available in Ireland with a starting price of €24,700.
The Octavia has been a consistent best seller for the Czech brand and holds the position of the fourth best-selling car in Ireland over the last five years. It was pipped by the Volkswagen Tiguan for fourth place in the first six months of this year (the 191 plate ).
Available as a hatchback or a combi estate, the Octavia Soleil retains all the strengths of the Octavia with 590 litres of boot capacity and good interior cabin spaciousness. Skoda claims low fuel consumption is assured with a turbo charged line up of TSI petrol engines, including the 1.0 TSI 115bhp and the frugal 1.6 TDI 115bhp which are available with both manual and DSG automatic transmissions.
The Soleil also benefits from an eight inch Bolero unit with SmartLink featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for the ultimate connectivity to the latest mobile devices.
The Soleil comes with LED headlights with AFS and headlight washers, half leather interior, heated seats, darkened rear glass and Skoda Care Connect, all featuring as a package for the first time in the Octavia.
The Soleil also comes with 16 inch Velorum alloy wheels that are unique to the Octavia Soleil.
