‘Style Plus’ is the new top of the line variant in the Skoda Octavia lineup in India.
Additional features:
  • Total of 8 airbags (2 new side airbags for rear passengers)
  • Start / Exit system
  • Engine start / stop button
  • Smartlink mobile phone system
  • Paddle shifts
  • Rear view camera with display on centre screen
Although a very competent product, probably the best in the segment, the Skoda Octavia fails to sell in respectable numbers. Also since the pricing is very, very close to the Superb which is a segment above.
Skoda has also introduced a new anniversary edition of the Octavia which starts at Rs. 15.45 lakh (ex-showroom Maharashtra). Surprisingly, it gets all the features mentioned above from the ‘Style Plus’ variant at a considerably lesser price.
