While the 1.8 TSI (DSG) is priced at INR 19.99 lacs, the 2.0 TDI (DSG) is priced at INR 21.99 lacs.
The ŠKODA OCTAVIA is a product that defines ‘tough meets smart’, with its inherent class & elegance reflected through emotive design, exquisite interiors, class-leading safety and intelligent connectivity features.
The Onyx inherits the signature contoured body of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA, and arms it with distinctive all-black design elements. The fascia is dominated by the front butterfly grille, with chrome surround, and characteristic Quadra headlamps with CystalGlo LED daytime running lights.
The side profile of the OCTAVIA Onyx, with carbon back door foils, lengthens the vehicle visually, giving it a coupé-like silhouette. The glossy black R (16) Premia alloy wheels and wing mirror housings accentuate its dynamic appearance. The C-shaped illumination, typical of the ŠKODA model range, is complemented by the glossy black spoiler that makes the vehicle confidently stand out.
The new OCTAVIA Onyx gets premium black leather upholstery and décor complemented by chrome highlights. The three-spoke SuperSport flat-bottom multifunction steering wheel with paddle-shift and black perforated leather lend the vehicle an emotive and authentic appearance with a strong identity of its own. The twelve-way electrically-adjustable driver and front passenger seats offer lumbar support and three programmable memory functions for the driver seat.
The Onyx comes equipped with the 1.8 TSI (DSG) petrol engine and the 2.0 TDI (DSG) diesel engine from the OCTAVIA model range. The 1.8 TSI (automatic seven-speed DSG) produces a power output of 180 PS (132 kW), and a torque output of 250 Nm (between 1,250 and 5,000 rpm) while delivering a fuel efficiency of 15.1 km/l. It achieves 0 to 100 km/hr in 7.7 seconds and a top speed of 233 km/hr. The turbo-charged 2.0 TDI offers 143 PS (105 kW) power and comes with an automatic six-speed DSG, as standard.
