2022 Skoda Octavia price and specs

Skoda has given its best-known car in Australia, the Octavia, more standard equipment and a slight price bump for 2022.

The base Octavia Style now has keyless entry and roller sun blinds for rear passengers in the liftback, and is $2500 more expensive than before based on Skoda’s nationwide drive-away pricing.

Under the skin, the Octavia shares its bones with the Volkswagen Golf. Power in the 110TSI models comes from the same 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine featured in the Golf, mated with an eight-speed torque converter automatic.

The new 140TSI Limited Edition has more power and torque from its 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, while the Octavia RS packs a Golf GTI-matching 2.0-litre engine and the associated performance hardware.

Both Octavia models major on practicality. The sedan is actually a liftback, while the wagon has a whopping 640L of boot space.

Engines

Power in the Skoda Octavia 110TSI comes from a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque.

It’s sent to the front wheels through an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission, rather than the dual-clutch (DSG) transmission of its predecessor.

Moving to the 140TSI gets you a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol with 140kW and 320Nm, mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and front-wheel drive.

The range-topping Octavia RS draws on a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 180kW of power and 370Nm of torque.

It’s also front-wheel drive, but uses a seven-speed (wet) dual-clutch transmission and has an electronically-locking front differential to help it put the power down.

Fuel Economy

The Skoda Octavia 110TSI sedan uses a claimed 5.7L/100km on the combined cycle, and the wagon uses 5.9L/100km.

The Octavia 140TSI sedan uses a claimed 6.1L/100km, the wagon uses 6.2L/100km on the combined cycle.

The Octavia RS uses a claimed 6.8L/100km across both body styles.
