Skoda has broadened the Octavia range by adding a new Sportline trim level for both hatchback and estate variants. The Sportline trim, already available for the Enyaq iV, Karoq and Kodiaq models, has been available on previous generations of the Octavia.

The Sportline trim features black exterior detailing on the front bumper, grille and rear diffuser, including the Skoda lettering on the tailgate. The hatchback also gets a black rear spoiler. The Sportline has 18-inch Vega wheels as standard, which are two inches larger than the wheels on standard entry-level SE and SE Technology models.

Inside, the Octavia Sportline features sports seats with integrated headrests, which are fitted with ThermoFlux upholstery, gloss-black strips and a fabric finish surrounding the instrument panel.  

The Sportline, which sits below the range-topping Octavia vRS and above the mid-range SE L, is available with the same broad range of petrol and diesel engines, as well as a plug-in hybrid powertrain. Like the SE L, It’s also offered in either front‑wheel or all-wheel drive. Power outputs range from 113bhp to 201bhp.

Skoda is yet to release the price list for the Octavia Sportline but, due to where it sits in the range, we expect its starting price will be somewhere around £26-£27,000.
