Skoda Octavia I & II

Thursday 27 August 2009
The first generation Octavia was released in 1996 and was built on the Volkswagen Group A4 (PQ34) platform. The car was widely used in the taxi trade, due the large number of private drivers who used the vehicle due to its low price, space and reliability. The first generation Octavia had a facelift in 2000 and is still manufactured and marketed in some markets, even though the second generation was introduced in 2004. In Germany, and other parts of West Europe, as well as Asia, the older model is marketed as the Octavia Tour, while the newer model is marketed as the Octavia. In some markets, the first-generation Octavia is still known as Octavia, and the newer model is referred to as the new Octavia, Octavia5 (Greece) or Laura (India). The major improvements in the new model are the independent rear suspension and improved interior (in space, design and quality of materials).
