Skoda has brought out on tests updated Octavia: the first photos.

The Czech brand is testing the novelty in two body variants.

Skoda Octavia current, fourth generation is produced since 2019, and soon it will be time for a planned restyling in the middle of the life cycle.

Judging by the first spy photos, which appeared at the disposal of Motor1, the Czech brand has already started road tests of the updated version of the model — the company is testing the novelty in two body variants at once, a liftback and a station wagon.

According to the location of the camouflage film, we can conclude in which places the biggest changes will occur.

Judging by the pictures taken during the tests of prototypes in Austria, the changes will mainly affect the front end and the rear.

Most likely Skoda will follow classical scenario and will update Octavia’s radiator grille, front and rear optics and also bumpers.

It looks like there will be some changes inside, but we don’t have photos of the interior yet. notes that the novelty has caught the lens of spy cameras for the first time, so most likely the tests are in the early stages.

Last year the head of the Russian division of Skoda Jan Prohazka explained that the automaker has no opportunity to localize the production of station wagon in the country and bring the model from abroad would be too expensive, which would inevitably be reflected in the price Octavia.

The liftback Octavia for the Russian market, as well as the Volkswagen Taos, Kodiaq and Karoq, is produced at the facilities of GAZ Group in Nizhny Novgorod.

The assembly of the cars was put on hold in March, and in early June it became known that Volkswagen was laying off workers at that plant.

The fact is that GAZ was put on the sanctions list of the US Ministry of Finance, and the European legal entities that cooperate with the companies subject to the US sanctions fall under the secondary sanctions.

Thus, this actually puts an end to the possible resumption of foreign cars assembly at the Nizhny Novgorod plant.
