The Skoda Octavia is set to receive a facelift later this year but, before the current generation model bows out, the Czech automobile maker is set to bring out a limited edition Octavia Black Edition. The company has released teaser images of the front grille and headlights of this vehicle online.

No more than a hundred units of this version will be produced for the Indian market and it will be put on sale in the range-topping Style Plus trim level only. Distinguishing features of the Octavia Black Limited Edition will be equipment such as a blacked out front grille, rear spoiler and blacked out rear view mirrors. Even the alloy wheels of this model have been given a black theme. However, all this black treatment does not make it to the inside of the car, and it continues to be identical to that of the standard Octavia.

Under the bonnet, things have been left untouched as well. The Octavia Black Edition will be driven by either a 1.8 litre, 4 cylinder, turbocharged petrol motor that pumps out 177 bhp or a 2.0 litre, 4 cylinder, turbocharged diesel engine that delivers 143 hp. While the petrol version is kitted out with a 7 speed, twin clutch, DSG automatic gearbox, the diesel version has a 6 speed, double clutch, DSG automatic transmission. Due to the extra bits and the Limited Edition moniker, expect the Black Limited Edition to cost more than the standard Skoda Octavia.
