The Škoda Octavia is a small family car produced by the Czech manufacturer Škoda Auto since 1996. It shares its name with an earlier Škoda model produced between 1959 and 1971. There have been three generations of the modern-era Octavia model to date, delivered with 5-door liftback or 5-door estate styles only. Around five million units were sold in its two decades of presence on the market.
The current generation is available in wide range of derivatives, i.e. sports Octavia RS, all-wheel drive Octavia Combi 4x4, frugal Octavia GreenLine, CNG-powered Octavia G-TEC and outdoor Octavia Scout. With the arrival of the Rapid model, Škoda moved the Octavia upmarket into the large family car segment.
