2021 Skoda Octavia Sportline revealed

Skoda has taken the wraps off the 2021 Octavia Sportline model. The new sedan will be the range-topping ‘non-RS’ model in the model’s lineup.

Skoda Auto has unveiled the new Octavia Sportline variant. The new (2021) Skoda Octavia Sportline will be positioned between the ‘Style’ and the range-topping ‘RS’ model in its lineup.

The new variant of the Octavia will feature a number of design elements which are common among ‘Sportline’ variants of all Skoda models. These include blacked-out treatment to the front grille, the 17-inch alloys and the ‘SKODA’ badging on the tailgate.

Skoda will also be offering the Octavia Sportline variant with a choice of 18 or 19-inch alloys, which can also be opted in black. Other exterior highlights also include the LED lighting all around and blacked-out ORVMs.

Inside as well, the new Skoda Octavia Sportline will feature Piano black decorative strips. The new variant will also come with sport seats with integrated headrests, wrapped in ThermoFlux upholstery. Most of the features on the new variant are said to have been carried forward from the ‘Style’ trim.

Skoda will be offering the new Octavia Sportline with a range of engine options. These include petrol, diesel, plug-in hybrid and CNG powertrains. Skoda will also be offering a choice of front-wheel and all-wheel drive systems. Also, the Octavia Sportline will come with both manual and automatic transmission units, depending on the powertrain.

Starting with the petrol trims, Skoda is offering two options: a 1.5-litre TSI producing 148 BHP and a 2.0-litre TSI churning out 189 BHP. The smaller 1.5-litre unit also comes with the optional mild-hybrid technology. Both engines though are mated to a standard seven-speed DSG automatic transmission.

The Skoda Octavia Sportline is offered with a single diesel engine option, with three state-of-tunes. This comes in the form of a 2.0-litre TDI producing either 114 BHP, 148 BHP or 198 BHP. All three tunes come mated to the same DSG automatic gearbox.

The Skoda Octavia iV Sportline is the model’s plug-in hybrid trim producing a total of 202 BHP. Finally, the CNG trim of the Octavia is said to churn out 128 BHP.
