The next generation Skoda Octavia has been spied almost naked in this latest spy video of the new Czech mid-sized sedan. As evident from the video, the Mk3 Octavia stays close to the general design of Skoda cars seen in the Mk2 version and the new Rapid sedan. The new model adopts a smaller grille and more angular head lamp design.

The new Octavia will be larger than the outgoing model to distant itself from the Rapid. It will also be more upmarket. The new model will be underpinned by VWs latest MQB platform, which is shared with other VW Group products such as the latest Golf, Audi A3 and Seat Leon. As such, the new Octavia is expected to be lighter than its predecessor despite having grown in size.

The 2013 Octavia III is expected to make its debut online in November, with its world premiere at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in March. It will share the range of petrol and diesel engines offered in the Golf, A3 and Leon.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
