► Škoda Octavia Combi 2013

By YouCar

The new ŠKODA Octavia Combi is 90 mm longer and 45 mm wider than its predecessor. The wheelbase has grown by almost 11 cm. The result: New records in room and space. "Our ŠKODA Octavia Combi offers rear-seat passengers extremely ample legroom -- 73 mm in front of the knees -- the highest in its segment. And at 610 litres, the size of the boot sets a new record for its class," says Dr. Frank Welsch, ŠKODA Board Member for Technical Development. By folding the rear backrests down, the boot space of the Combi increases to an impressive 1.740 litres. There are also numerous 'Simply Clever' details: In addition to the features in the new Octavia hatch, like the double-sided floor mat, the comprehensive net restraint system, multiple bag hooks, a waste bin and lots of bottle holders, holder for multimedia devices, the ice scraper in the fuel tank opening or the warning-vest holder under the driver's seat, the new Combi has other new smart solutions on board: examples include the coat rack or the remote fold-down function for the rear-seat backrest. The folding passenger seat makes transporting very long objects much easier. There is space for a luggage compartment rollo cover and roof bars under the adjustable and retractable variable boot floor. The newly developed engines of the third-generation ŠKODA Octavia Combi are up to 17% more economical than the previous generation. The engines currently on offer comprise four petrol and four diesel engines, the fuel efficient GreenLine Version reaches a consumption of only 3.4 l/100km and CO2 emissions of only 89 g/km. Also to be seen first at Geneva 2013: the ŠKODA Octavia Combi 4×4 with a newly developed all-wheel drive and 5th-generation Haldex clutch. ►
