Skoda Octavia Sportline model added to range

The new Skoda Octavia Sportline will be available in hatchback and estate form, with prices starting from £23,870

The new Skoda Octavia Sportline has been launched. Featuring revised bodywork styling and technology upgrades, the Octavia Sportline will be available in both hatchback and estate form and will rival the Peugeot 508 and the Vauxhall Insignia. The Sportline can be ordered now priced from £23,870, with first deliveries expected this April.

The Sportline model sits below the high-performance Octavia vRS, aligning with similarly specced Sportline variants of the Karoq and Kodiaq SUVs, as well as the Superb saloon.

The exterior of the Octavia Sportline features a number of changes, including a gloss black finish for the front spoiler, grille, wing mirrors and rear diffuser. Upgraded black 18-inch ‘Vega’ alloy wheels in black with silver detailing are also included, as are full LED headlights with an adaptive light system and LED daytime running lights.

Inside, the Octavia Sportline gets a number of upgrades over the SE model with an eight-inch infotainment touchscreen and Amundsen sat-nav system as standard, rain sensing wipers and Skoda’s Light assistant. It also has sports seats with unique red and black upholstery, black headlining and a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel.

At launch, Skoda will offer the Octavia Sportline with a 148bhp 1.5-litre petrol engine with either a six-speed manual gearbox or a seven-speed DSG gearbox. The diesel option is a 148bhp 2.0-litre engine that can only be specced with a seven-speed DSG gearbox.
