The third-generation successor was even lighter,
safer, more advanced and more spacious in terms of
technical parameters. At that time, the brand’s heart
started to pump fresh blood again thanks to its digital
technologies and smart solutions. Our corporate
customers in particular liked the more economical
variant of the OCTAVIA G-TEC with natural gas drive.
In the Name of Smart Solutions
At a time when cars began to be packed with
electronics, the OCTAVIA impressed with its wide range
of practical assistants. The third generation featured the
Front Assist system for automatic car stopping in case of an
impending accident. It also became possible to connect one’s
mobile phone or tablet. Full-LED headlights were added during
the car’s modernisation in 2015.
The gold standard among safety tests, Euro NCAP Agency, awarded
the third generation the best possible rating in 2013. Since then,
ŠKODA cars have regularly received the full five-star rating.
Ecological with CNG Drive
In 2014, the economical GREENLINE version was
followed up by the OCTAVIA model with its G-TEC
variant with natural gas drive. It would become
especially popular with corporate customers, who enjoy
great savings despite high mileage. A CNG tank is good
for 410 km; after switching to petrol, the total range
increases by 920 km. The traditional OCTAVIA drives
have been exceptionally economical as well and have
long ranked high in the Economy Run competition.
