In case you were thinking of going to the 2014 Geneva Motor Show in March, know that you might be in for a surprise as the new Skoda Octavia four-door will be revealed. The concept vehicle finally gives the company the possibility to rival sister company VW’s Passat-based CC.
The design team opted for a sharper look, reinterpreting the Octavia’s traditional features. Now, the car incorporates a bolder side crease that smoothly runs the length of its shoulderline and a slicker appearance plus a whole lot of attitude.

Besides this, it features triangular LED headlights that are echoed in the foglights, a lower roofline flowing gently into the rear end and a steeply raked windscreen.

Concerning its platform, the new four-door coupe has the same MQB as the original Octavia, therefore it incorporates the same 2,686mm wheelbase.

All in all, one can notice that along the years, Skoda changed direction a bit and opted to put even more emphasis on the design of its vehicles.

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.
