Škoda adds new Octavia SE Drive trim
Škoda has extended its Octavia hatch and estate line-ups with the addition of a new trim focused on providing extra equipment and value.
Positioned above the SE, the SE Drive brings extra equipment including 17-inch alloys along with Amundsen navigation with integrated WiFi and textile floor mats. It’s priced from £20,155 OTR – £550 more than the SE – but the options would cost more than £1,300 if added to the SE. It also carries over the SE’s acoustic rear parking sensors, cruise control, Driver fatigue sensor, Driving mode selection and Driver personalisation (including three keys), as well as electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, a three-spoke leather multi-function steering wheel and dual-zone air conditioning with humidity sensor and control.
The SE Drive is available with three engine options – two petrol and one diesel – with DSG transmission available on all three. The SE Drive engine range starts with a 115hp 1.0 TSI petrol unit rising to a 150hp 1.5 TSI and a 115hp 1.6 TDI unit capable of returning 56.5-49.6mpg on the WLTP combined cycle in hatch form with six-speed manual transmission.
The Octavia SE Drive is available to order now.
