Skoda has announced details of new SE Sport and SE Technology trim levels for its practical Octavia family car. Read on for full details…

The Skoda Octavia hatchback and Octavia Estate are now available in new SE Sport and SE Technology trim levels. The latter specification replaces the old SE Business trim level. Both models come with a raft of new equipment and features – read on for full details.

The Octavia SE Sport comes as standard with 17-inch alloy wheels and upgraded xenon headlights with LED daytime running lights and LED brake lights. The interior has been treated to a set of sports seats, a multifunction steering wheel and a sat-nav system with built in WiFi. Cruise control is also fitted as standard to SE Sport models.

SE Sport models are priced at £19,990 for a hatchback 1.4-litre petrol model with a manual gearbox – customers can choose to upgrade their car with an automatic DSG gearbox or a more powerful 1.6-litre diesel engine, however.

The new SE Technology trim replaces SE Business models. It can be specified with one of four diesel engines, including a 1.6-litre unit that’s capable of returning 80.7mpg. This model comes with sat nav, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors and the chrome styling pack as standard. A 1.6-litre manual hatchback in SE Technology trim costs from £19,925 while a 1.6-litre Estate with an automatic gearbox will set you back £22,395.
