Skoda’s popularity in Europe can’t be understated, even if the brand is relatively anonymous in this part of the world. But Europeans love their Skodas and the company knows that, which is why it has undertaken an initiative to launch a special ’Black Edition’ set for the entire range. The Octavia is arguably the most popular Skoda model today. That’s why we’re focusing on this one instead of those ho-hum Citigo and Super Estate models. To its credit, the Octavia is actually a pretty decent model that comes packed with a lot of nice touches and useful technology.
The Skoda Octavia Black Edition is available in either the Hatch and Estate body styles, and carries a 2.0-liter TDi engine that produces either 138 horsepower or 167 ponies.
We’re never going to see the Octavia or any of the Skoda models here in the U.S., but for our friends across the pond, the whole range is available, including the Octavia Black Edition that retails for £21,685. That’s about $37,000 as of 7/22/2014.
