[VIDEO] 2014 Skoda Octavia gets first promo image

The very first promotional video with the new Skoda Octavia generation has been recently released by the Czech based automaker.

After it was unveiled for the first time a few months ago, the 2014 Skoda Octavia is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the help of its first promotional video. The footage posted below is presenting the new-gen Skoda Octavia as the perfect family vehicle in which you can also have some fun. We don’t agree, because the only Skoda models in which you can have a laugh are the RS ones, and the model in question is anything but an RS.

The new generation of the Skoda Octavia, which is wearing the 2014 model year in its name, is coming with engine options such as the 1.8 liter TSI with 179 HP (132 kW) or the 1.6 liter TDI GreenLine with 110 HP (81 kW), which is burning just 3.4 liters of fuel every 100 km (83.0 mpg UK / 69.1 mpg US) and it’s emitting 89 g/km of CO2. The 2014 Octavia is riding on the new MQB modular platform, used on the new Golf 7, Leon and A3, amongst others. The model is 90 mm longer and 45 mm wider than before.
