On March 3, 1998, Škoda lifted the curtain on the first modern-generation Octavia Combi at the Geneva International Motor Show. Series production of the future bestseller had already started a few weeks earlier, in February 1998, in a modern production facility in Mladá Boleslav. Over the past 25 years, the legendary model has become one of the most successful station wagons in its class in many countries. In the current fourth generation, electrified variants are also available: a plug-in hybrid drive in the Octavia Combi iV and mild hybrid technology in the Octavia Combi e-TEC. The strengths of the practical Škoda Octavia Combi traditionally include excellent value for money, a wide range of assistance systems and the highest possible levels of active and passive safety. This is confirmed once again in December 2022 by the results of the Euro NCAP reference test, which are valid until 2028.
