The modern Octavia that we see on our roads was launched in 1996 and is a small family car that can be bought in a variety of layouts.
Customers have had the option of buying it as a liftback saloon, an estate or a standard saloon.
During the 2012 introduction of the third generation, buyers could now choose for a four-wheel-drive chassis for the first time, typically the car is bought as a front-wheel drive.
The Octavia is an important model for the Czech carmaker and makes up 40% of the cars they sell with over 5 million being made in total, with the Fabia coming in second with half as many sales per year.
A secret to the car's success is the variety of engines and trims to help the car appeal to a wide range of demographics and regions around the world.
Choices start from a modest 1.4-liter gasoline unit through to a 1.8-liter turbo-charged power plant mated to the usual manual or automatic gearbox.
On the most recent generation (the 4th so far) released in 2020, all engines are now turbo-charged to help sales in the China region who crave smaller engines with turbochargers.
New safety features including the latest Skoda Octavia include systems that detect if the driver is conscious and active steering to help in case of accidents.
