THE ALL-NEW ŠKODA OCTAVIA – BUILDING ON A RICH LEGACY
January 1959, the first OCTAVIA cruised the production in Mladá Boleslav. The trademark got its name from the Latin word ‘Octavia’ meaning ‘the eighth’. Known to be the eighth vehicle post-world war in ŠKODA AUTO’s product portfolio and also the eighth vehicle to feature itself in state-of-the-art independent suspension for all the wheels out there. Advanced technical innovations such as the front axle with coil springs and torsion bar stabilizer gave OCTAVIA an unmatchable dynamic of driving with comfort in riding.

With its entry in India, it soon garnered some praise and appreciation, gaining itself some loyal clients.
