Skoda to Unveil Octavia Facelift at the Paris Show

The oldest model in Skoda’s European line-up, the mid-size Octavia that has been around in this form since 2004 will receive a mild facelift at this week's Paris motorshow bringing the Czech manufacturer’s biggest-selling and most successful model up-to-date with the rest of the range. Details are still sketchy but expect to see the 2009 Octavia liftback and estate models getting a new face inspired from the Czech firm’s latest models like the Fabia and Superb.
