It’s been a while since we haven’t heard anything about Skoda Octavia, but I’m happy to see that they’re finally getting a facelift rolled out, and yes it’s official even though it’s ahead of the Paris Motor Show world premier. However, the facelift isn’t significant because the 2009 model is only getting a new hood and some new headlamps (that I don’t like very much).
Other than the new front design, the new Octavia will feature a new generation of three and four-spoke steering wheels, navigation system controls, new materials and new colors for the seats and the lining of the door panels. One of the best news however, is the new turbocharged 1.4-liter TSI gasoline engine that develops 122 hp. Lovely! – via Carscoop
