Skoda Octavia radiator grille and logo on bonnet sees India vie for Unofficial Expert 2 contest, let’s drive
The radiator grille with its 19 vertical slats forms the centre of the vehicle’s front end. To give the grille added visual emphasis, the designers separated it more clearly from the headlights. Slight curves make the outer shape more dynamic. A fine strip of chrome surrounds the radiator grille – for an elegant, distinctive finish.
Together with the grille, the distinctively shaped headlights form a closed, characteristic front-end graphic. The car’s completely redesigned headlights emphasise the width of the front-end of the Octavia luxury sedan. Deliberate variations on such crystalline design elements emphasises the roots of the vehicle in the Czech Republic, a country with a great tradition in crystal glass.
