Skoda has released a teaser video for the upcoming third-gen Octavia set to be unveiled later this month.
Riding on VW Group's MQB platform, the 2013 Octavia will find its place between the Rapid and Superb in Skoda's lineup, with engines from the Golf VII. It will be lighter than the outgoing model and could get a hot vRS version powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.
Design-wise, a larger grille and a sloping roofline are expected, as well as a prominent character line running from the headlights to the taillights. Despite losing weight, the new Octavia will probably grow in size a little bit.
A full reveal is expected before the end of the month.
