First off, there’s the shot of the side profile, which shows very simple lines, like an extended version of the Rapid sedan. The Octavia’s third-generation incarnation will be bigger by 250 than the outgoing one.

The MQB modular platform will, at the same time, help it keep the weight off as it grows. Because of the Rapid, the Octavia no longer has to play the budget sedan role, so expect all the cool safety features from the Golf VII to be used.

The engine range will include base 1.2-liter TSI with 105 PS, a 1.4-liter TSI with 140 PS and at lots of diesel configurations displacing 1.6- and 2.0-liters, producing from 105 to about 180 horsepower. There will also be a vRS (or RS) version which will come in both diesel and petrol flavors.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
