This new 2013 Octavia mule was spotted somewhere at the Mumbai Pune Expressway and was a diesel. White color and glossy black roof look classy and it is also sporting smoked headlamps ala the new Vento and Polo. The earlier mules were devoid of these exterior features and it appears that this might be a different or a higher variant.
The new 2013 Octavia A7 carries the new butterfly grille and a meaner looking front fascia. New 2013 Octavia is based on Volkswagen’s revolutionary MQB platform which it shares with VW Golf and others. It will replace the existing Skoda Laura in India and compete with D-segment sedans like Elantra and Cruze among others. New Octavia A7 is expected to be placed just under Volkswagen’s Jetta.
Another document has been spied by Sheel, another Team-Bhp member, which appears to be sent from equipment and parts supplier Bosch to Skoda service workshops. It clears that the new Skoda Octavia A7 will be launched soon. New Octavia A7 is expected to make an Indian entry towards the middle part of this year.
Of late, interests of Indian customers have moved to Utility Vehicles and there are a plethora of them available and even more slated to make an Indian entry. The D-segment is struck badly with this new paradigm shift and it will be interesting to see if the new Skoda Octavia A7 can do the trick for the Czech manufacturer.
