Skoda has prepared a new equipment package for its bestseller, so the fourth generation Octavia model will now be offered for the first time in a more dynamic edition - Sportline. It will, therefore, be a version just below the sporty Octavia RS model.
Situated between the Style trim level and the sporty Octavia RS model, the new Sportline variant brings black exterior elements, a three-spoke multifunction sports steering wheel, sports seats with integrated headrests and, perhaps best of all, the option to order with DCC dynamic chassis control.
On the outside, the Sportline Octavia differs from the others in the front splitter, as well as in the grille frame and the Skoda inscription on the tailgate, which comes in a glossy black color. The rear is also a black diffuser with chrome elements, while the hatchback version also boasts a black rear spoiler.
Standard equipment for the Octavia Sportline includes black 17-inch Pulsar alloy wheels, and metallic black 18-inch Vega wheels are also available as an option, and exclusively for Sportline 19-inch black polished Taurus alloy wheels. The front wings are decorated with Sportline badges.
In terms of engines, the Škoda Octavia Sportline is available with petrol and diesel engines, a natural gas (CNG) version, as well as plug-in hybrid and mild-hybrid technology and front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Output power ranges from 85 kW (115 hp) to 150 kW (204 hp). The 110 kW (150 hp) 1.5 TSI petrol can be ordered with the optional 7-speed DSG transmission and mild-hybrid technology, while the 140 kW (190 hp) 2.0 TSI comes standard with a DSG transmission and all-wheel drive.
The 2.0 TDI diesel can be ordered with 85 kW (115 hp), 110 kW (150 hp) and 147 kW (200 hp).
The Octavia iV Sportline is a 150 kW (204 hp) plug-in hybrid, while the G-TEC version on compressed natural gas (CNG) delivers 96 kW (130 hp).
In the cabin, the Octavia Sportline is inspired by the level of Style equipment and includes Piano Black decorative strips. The sports seats have integrated headrests and are equipped with specially breathable ThermoFlux upholstery. The multifunctional sports steering wheel has three arms and the Sportline mark, while the decorative sills on the front door have the inscription Octavia. In addition, the new variant of the Czech bestseller also offers well-known Simply Clever solutions, such as a USB-C port on the interior mirror.
