2013 Skoda Octavia photographed during commercial shoot

2013 Skoda Octavia

Jetta + Audi + Rapid = Octavia

These are the first photos with the upcoming Octavia III without wearing any sort of camo.

The Czech automaker plans on revealing the 2013 Octavia before the end of the month, following a teaser released a few days ago. However, we already have photos of the new model that looks confusingly a lot like the smaller Rapid. In one of the attached photos we see the more practical wagon variant.

Looking more upscale than the outgoing model, the new Octavia will grow in size but will be lighter since it will switch to VW Group's MQB platform. Looking as if the Jetta and an old-gen Audi A6 had a baby, the third-gen model will be offered with just about the same engines as the Golf VII.

The photos were taken in Santiago de Chile where the car was being prepared for a commercial.

Thanks to Lukáš Jurenka for the tip!

The front looks a lot like the 2005 - 2007 Octavia II. Better than the egg sunny side up headlight version of late.
