I quite like the hatch.

Are these legit images, or simply someone's photoshop ones as with previous pics we've seen claiming to be the Mk3?

My thoughts exactly!

OP, where did these images come from?

Apesar de ter sofrido um restyling em 2008, o Octavia vai-se manter em funções até 2012/13, altura em que será substituído no mercado pelo seu sucessor.
Neste momento, espera-se que o carro beba inspiração da mais recente criação da marca, o VisionD, no que ao desenho diz respeito: espera-se um desenho refinado, sendo os grupos ópticos rectangulares e a lateral percorrida por um "vinco".
Um sedan e uma carrinha são já dados como certos, sendo o hatch (ou lift, fastback ou o que quer que seja) uma variante ainda em dúvida, apesar de bastante provável.

O Octavia vai assentar na plataforma MQB, estreada pelo Q3, estendendo-se esta também aos primos mais próximos: Golf 7 e Audi A3. Apesar de um posicionamento esperado mais abaixo do actual no mercado, a marca não deixará de lado certas tecnologias como o Stop & Start, talvez receba o cruise control activo ou mesmo o assistente de estacionamento automático, apesar destas possíveis inovações, no que diz respeito à mecânica não deverão haver novidades.

Todays model will be on sale until 2012/2013.
Octavias platform is the new MQB, first used on Audi Q3, and will also be used on future Golf 7 and Audi A3.
Will have start/stop function, adaptive cruise control, park assist.
Motors will stand the same.

Yes I like that too. JR RS I'm looking forward to seeing the vRS too.

The rear of the estate look a bit like BMW 3 series touring and the hatch looks rather Audi like.

The estate is better than the hatch but I bet loadspace is compromised with that tapered roof line. :)

Looks a bit Mongrel design, bits from various other cars, Merc rear lights, Audi side view , retro front Skoda lights,

Looks o.k., but where has originality gone Posted Image

I agree about the Merc rear lights but disagree on everything else. And what is the originality you talk of? The Octy Mk I was original as they'd never built anything like it, but the II was just a development of that. And the Superb was literally a stretched Passat.

Surely this is just a cut and paste photoshop from the VAG parts bin?

If not then they really should have given the designer of the light clusters more than just an etch a sketch to work with!

If this is the finished product then I'm sure like all Skoda products it will grow on me over time and it will be the vRS that really gets my attention.

Like it... but as with so many medium sized estates these days the rear is getting strong slope, looks very smart but compromises the load space.. the tailgate opening looks small and the sill high... moan moan moan....

Very nice - looks rather Superb-ish I reckon, especially those squashed headlights. Much more aggressive all round.

couple more in different colours, see http://www.eurocarbl...avia-renderings

"while the top of the range will be represented by the RS versione with the 2.0-litre TSI with 270 hp (the same engine as that of the Golf R)."

The above pic's were posted on 'another' Octavia 3 thread a while ago, tbh I think that desgin would better the next Superb!

On the engine, I would be surprised but very happy if they dumped the 270 bhp version of the Tsi in the vRS......can't see it happening though. :(

The thing is - 270bhp is just too much for 2-wheel drive.
OK it can be done, the new VXR is 300bhp with 2-wheel drive but it's just an accident waiting to happen.

Not sure I agree with that, Harry_vRS has a K04 conversion running 340+ ok he has just fitted a LSD but he has been coping for a while, and over on the GTi mkv forum some of the guys have 360bhp running through the front wheels of ED30's. I do agree though, a 4wd vRS would be awesome.....not an oil burner though! :giggle:
