About The Octavia

The original Skoda Octavia name goes way back to the late 1950’s where it was used for a completely different compact family car.

This page links to various Octavia owner’s manuals and provides instructions on how to use your car for the common tasks that you may need to perform with your vehicle.

Generation 4 Octavia’s are only being built in the company’s home country of the Czech Republic and is noticeably much more stylish than the last version.

Inside customers will find a suite of new comforts such as 2 desperate infotainment touch screen displays, wireless smartphone charging and active collision detection and avoiding by the car.
