The European motor press has been abuzz lately as journalists in the Old World wait for the arrival of the new Octavia, and now Skoda
has released it. As seems to be the case with every redesigned car reaching the market these days, the third-generation Skoda Octavia
is larger than the model it replaces, growing in wheelbase, length, width and height to the benefit of interior volume that is claimed to top its class. The boost in size also keeps the Octavia bigger than rivals like the Ford
Focus, but smaller than the next size up like the Mondeo.
