As rumored a while back, the third-generation Octavia Combi is now longer and wider, which means Skoda's new wagon offers a great amount of interior space, more than its VW Passat counterpart.

Safety features will include up to nine airbags, City Emergency Braking Function, and Driver Activity Assistant and basically everything already available on the sedan version.

The new Octavia Combi is set to arrive 17 percent more fuel efficient engines, and customers will be allowed to choose from no less than four gasoline and four diesel powerplants, including the GreenLine, which is said to deliver a fuel consumption of only 3.4 liters / 100 km.

At next month's Geneva Motor Show, Skoda will also reveal the new Octavia Combi 4x4.
