THis looks huge, I hope it is more the angle/lens used of the photo.

A bit more space inside wouldn't do any harm, as the current 308 is rather cramped. Hopefully they can make it by more efficient use of space and not by making the car much larger on the outside.

Indeed; Especially, as it is mostly cramped in terms of rear leg room, so a bit more wheelbase - or, as you point out, more efficient use of space - should solve the problem; But some of the newer C-segment cars have really become huge, a new Ocatvia or Focus estate look like a large D segment car....

The Octavia IS a D-segment car. Maybe not by the platform it uses, but definitely by the length of it. It is barely 5cm shorter than a Passat, and has bigger rear space and boot.

Most magazines classify it as a C-segment hatch, and then praise how spacious it is (no wonder, given it's size, and at least in Austria it is also priced more like a d segment car), and lets not forget there is still the Superb as their proper D-segment car; But yeah, SKodas are usually a bit in between segments offering the tech form a segment below with the space of a segment above (the Scala, sitting on a Polo platform is a similar in between segments car)

There's nothing wrong with the current 308's space efficiency. It's smaller than the Golf, but has a luggage area that's almost 100 litres larger. They should trade some of that excess capacity for increased rear legroom.

I guess a huge boot is always tempting for the spec sheet; Some cars though have also quite some tricks up the sleeve when it's coming to boot volume....
