Six decades of the Skoda Octavia


The Skoda Octavia, the brand’s most successful model in the UK and a multi-million seller around the world, celebrates its 60th anniversary since its introduction.

Originally designed to bring affordable and high-quality motoring to the widest possible audience, the design and engineering philosophies behind the Octavia remain the same today.

First launched in 1959, the Octavia remains Skoda’s top-seller six decades later, with a range that includes nine equipment levels, 14 engine and transmission options and two body styles.

Over the years, the Octavia has proved itself to be one of the most adaptable and practical cars on the market. It has set World Land Speed Records, been transformed into a title-winning rally car and, become one of the most trusted cars used by emergency services.
