2021 Skoda Octavia pricing and specs detailed: New 140TSI Limited Edition bridges Sportline gap for Toyota Camry and Mazda 6 rival

The 140TSI Limited Edition (pictured) is expected to be replaced by a sportier 140TSI Sportline next year.

Skoda Australia has expanded the recently launched fourth-generation Octavia range, with the mid-size car now available in a new 140TSI Limited Edition grade.

As its name suggests, the 140TSI Limited Edition isn’t sticking around forever, with it all but confirmed to be replaced by a sportier 140TSI Sportline grade in 2022.

In the meantime, though, the 140TSI Limited Edition is available in sedan ($44,790 plus on-road costs) and wagon ($46,090) body-styles, positioning it about $10,000 above and $3000 below the Octavia’s existing 110TSI Style and RS grades respectively.

Much like the RS, the 140TSI Limited Edition pairs a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, although its combination is 40kW/50Nm less potent, at 140kW/320Nm.

That said, the 140TSI Limited Edition still represents a big upgrade over the 110TSI Style and price-leading 110TSI Ambition, which both match a 110kW/250Nm 1.4-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission.

Over the 110TSI Style (see the related story link above for specification details), the 140TSI Limited Edition adds drive modes, 19-inch Becrux alloy wheels, digital radio, a 12-speaker Canton sound system and a head-up display.

Power-adjustable front seats with heating, cooling and massaging functionality also feature alongside heated rear seats, three-zone climate control and leather-appointed upholstery.

And advanced driver-assist systems extend to blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, while dual rear-side airbags bring the ‘safety pillow’ total to 10 for the Toyota Camry and Mazda6 rival.
