In 2005, Skoda launched the second generation, which was introduced as the Laura. It was sold alongside the first-gen Octavia until 2010. The vRS badge was first introduced in 2004.
In 2013, the Octavia returned in its third-generation avatar. Four years later, the facelift version went on sale in India. The fourth-generation Octavia was launched in 2021.
At present, the Octavia is offered with a single engine option. The 2.0-litre turbo-petrol unit makes 187 BHP and 320 Nm. It is mated to a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox.
