Skoda Auto India has planned some very major launches for this year and the all-new Octavia sedan is one of them. The launch details of the new car were confirmed officially by the Skoda boss in a social media post a few days back.

The fourth-generation Octavia sedan officially broke cover in November 2019. With the generation change, the Octavia gained a host of updates inside out. From a completely overhauled exterior design to a new cabin, technology, and updated powertrain options, the Octavia transformed into a completely new offering altogether.

The exterior highlights of the new Octavia include its new butterfly grille with black vertical slats. This grille is flanked with LED headlamps with dual J-shaped LED DRLs and fog lights. At the rear, it gets LED taillights that look sleek and angular, complementing the overall sporty profile of the sedan. There is also a Skoda lettering on the bootlid. The same lettering design is also implemented in a number of other new products by Skoda. The 2021 Octavia rides on 17-inch alloy wheels that give the car a muscular stance.
