Skoda has given its best-known car in Australia, the Octavia, more standard equipment and a slight price bump for 2022.

The base Octavia Style now has keyless entry and roller sun blinds for rear passengers in the liftback, and is $2500 more expensive than before based on Skoda’s nationwide drive-away pricing.

Under the skin, the Octavia shares its bones with the Volkswagen Golf. Power in the 110TSI models comes from the same 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine featured in the Golf, mated with an eight-speed torque converter automatic.

The new 140TSI Limited Edition has more power and torque from its 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine, while the Octavia RS packs a Golf GTI-matching 2.0-litre engine and the associated performance hardware.

Both Octavia models major on practicality. The sedan is actually a liftback, while the wagon has a whopping 640L of boot space.

Price

  • 2022 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Ambition: $35,490 drive-away (+$2500)
  • 2022 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Ambition wagon: $36,990 drive-away (+$2500)
  • 2022 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Style: $37,990 drive-away (+$1000)

  • 2022 Skoda Octavia RS: $52,990 drive-away (+$1500)
  • 2022 Skoda Octavia RS wagon: $54,490 drive-away (+$1500)

All prices exclude on-road costs.

Engines

Power in the Skoda Octavia 110TSI comes from a 1.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 110kW of power and 250Nm of torque.

It’s sent to the front wheels through an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission, rather than the dual-clutch (DSG) transmission of its predecessor.

Moving to the 140TSI gets you a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol with 140kW and 320Nm, mated with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and front-wheel drive.

The range-topping Octavia RS draws on a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 180kW of power and 370Nm of torque.

It’s also front-wheel drive, but uses a seven-speed (wet) dual-clutch transmission and has an electronically-locking front differential to help it put the power down.

You can find further details on the engines offered in the range via the official Skoda Octavia brochure as well as more information on performance and fuel consumption

Fuel Economy

The Skoda Octavia 110TSI sedan uses a claimed 5.7L/100km on the combined cycle, and the wagon uses 5.9L/100km.

The Octavia 140TSI sedan uses a claimed 6.1L/100km, the wagon uses 6.2L/100km on the combined cycle.

The Octavia RS uses a claimed 6.8L/100km across both body styles.

Dimensions

The 2022 Skoda Octavia measures 4689mm long, 1829mm wide and 1470mm tall in sedan guise, and 1468mm tall in wagon guise.

All Octavia models ride on a 2686mm wheelbase.

Boot space in the sedan (which is a liftback, or hatchback, despite the official billing) is 600L, and the wagon has 640L of space.

You can find additional details on internal and external dimensions within the Skoda Octavia brochure.

Servicing and Warranty

Maintenance in the Skoda Octavia is required every 12 months or 15,000km.

A pre-paid three-year service pack costs $1400, a five-year pack costs $1550, and a seven-year pack costs $2400.

Like the wider Skoda range, the Octavia is backed by a five-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

Vehicles purchased with a seven-year service package before the end of 2021 also get a seven-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty as part of a Skoda Australia offer.

You can find a detailed break down of the service intervals and their respective prices on the Skoda website.

Safety

The 2022 Skoda Octavia has a five-star Euro NCAP crash test rating.

It scored 92 per cent for adult occupant protection, 88 per cent for child occupant protection, 73 per cent for vulnerable road user protection, and 79 per cent for safety assist.

Standard safety equipment includes:
