Many automakers, either be luxury or mainstream brands, stretches their vehicles to better cater to their customers where rear legroom is of utmost importance. The same also applies to the 2021 Skoda Octavia pro, even though it is the most spacious compact car in its class.
The 2021 Skoda Octavia Pro, which is 2.51 inches longer (now at 4,753 mm) than the global version and has most of the stretch between the shaft as the wheelbase has been extended by 44 mm (1.7 in) to 2,730 mm (107.4 in). That means is customers can now enjoy superb levels of legroom in a car from a lesser segment and at a more affordable price tag.
Besides the longer rear doors, the design stays faithful to the international variant. Nevertheless, Skoda has designed new front and rear bumpers that take after the Octavia RS to give the Pro variant an energetic appearance. It also gets a couple of vibrant colors added with black side mirror caps and wheels as big as 18 inches.
The interior of the 2021 Skoda Octavia pro has been carried over from the latest-generation Octavia we’re all familiar with, and that includes a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen and an optional 10.25-inch digital driver’s display. Skoda prefers to sell the Pro version in China with a head-up display given at an additional cost along with the latest driver safety and assistance systems which are already available in the global model.
Underneath the hood of the 2021 Skoda Octavia pro, there is a turbocharged 1.4-liter gasoline engine with 150 horsepower that will drive the front wheels through a seven-speed, dual-clutch automatic transmission. The 2021 Skoda Octavia Pro’s launch does not indicate the demise of the third-generation model as Skoda will continue to trade it in the world’s most populous country, China.
