SKODA has just released these first official pictures of its new Octavia Combi (estate).
The new car will make its debut at next month's Geneva motor show.
With the rear seats folded flat it will have a huge 1,740 litres of boot capacity – easily making it the best in its sector. With the seats up, the capacity is 610 litres.
It is expected here in June, a few months after the mainstream hatchback arrives in March.
The estate's wheelbase is 11cm longer than the hatch and that gives more rear passenger room. Overall, the Combi is 90mm longer and 45mm wider than the current estate.
Expect engines to be more or less the same as those powering the hatchback.
