A Very Special Arrival

Whenever we see a group of sales execs in an excited huddle in the showroom we know that a new Skoda model has arrived. And that’s understandable - all new Skoda launches generate a buzz around the business. 
However, when the first new Octavia landed , we noticed a slightly different pattern of behaviour altogether…
This time we saw them standing in groups for longer than usual looking longingly at its sleek new lines. We saw them taking it in turns to sit in the drivers seat and grip the steering wheel. We saw them flipping the bonnet up to see what was under the hood, and then checking out the boot space. And finally we saw them racing upstairs to John's office to ask about the new demo allocation. 
I think we can all agree that the Octavia didn’t really have anything to prove. Its fan base was already established with over 6.5 million sold worldwide since its introduction in 1996, representing nearly a third of all Skoda sales. 

With this new model, the brand have defiantly risen to the challenge. In a world full of SUV’s in which Skoda has already made its mark, saloon and estate cars are easily overlooked.  Despite this plethora of high drive, sporty outdoor machines, it is apparent that the Octavia still demands a great deal of respect from the car buying public, and those who already admire its attention to detail and engineering prowess will be even more imnprtessed with the new model.

On closer inspection, the Octavia’s design and overall build quality presents is notably more prevalent than with any of its predecessors. The daring new grille, angular headlights, shapely bonnet and deeply contoured flanks would see it hold its own in any beauty contest with the other autobahn crunching beasts.  
Boasting a 14% increase in  aerodynamic efficiency,  for both the lift-back and estate models, economy has been preserved without any compromise in style. And the performance and range of engines and accessories are plentiful, and enough to keep any prospective buyer busy for hours.
Fabulously handsome, exciting to drive, economical and as reliable as any car ion the road, what’s not to love?
We can see why the execs definitely behaved differently this time!

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
