The new Octavia Combi has significantly increased proportions, boasting a 110mm longer wheelbase along with a 90mm longer and 45mm wider body as compared to its predecessor. Available boot space is increased to 1740 litres with the rear seats folded.

Skoda commented that the Combi will get a selection of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines that is similar to the Liftback. The Liftback’s petrol lineup ranges from the 86bhp 1.2-litre to the 180bhp 1.8-litre. Diesel options include the 1.6 TDI with 90bhp or 105bhp, and the 2.0 TDI generating 150bhp. The GreenLine version of the new Skoda Octavia (1.6 TDI) achieves very low CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km and consumes a mere 3.4 litres of diesel per 100 km.

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.
