    Does it remind anyone of the Passat W8? Those headlights looks very familiar...

    Still, I like it, but why the heck do they never put mesh where there should be mesh- it's always stupid ordinary grilles. Grrrr.

    It is a passat. VW own Skoda, therefore they get a passat and change the badge, literally. So this is more or less a Passat W8, or close enough. And for less money.

    Not excactly.
    Octavia shares a platform with VW Golf, Audi A3, Seat Leon etc.
    Passat equal in Skoda line-up is Superb

    First of all, you mention Passat W8. Naturally I assumed that you were talking about old Passat (B5), since there is no W8 option on current Passat (B6).

    Cheers

    IIRC it only shares COMPONENTS as part of VWs new "click technology" matrix.

    So the front suspension and mounts and engine/box options are common.
    I don't think there is much in the chassis/body that is beyond that.
