Octavia vs Golf vs Mondeo video group test

The Ford Mondeo was named Best Family Car in the 2013 What Car? Awards. However, it’s now available at a price on par with smaller cars such as the Volkswagen Golf and the all-new Skoda Octavia. We’ve pitted these three models against one another in our latest video group test.

The Golf, Mondeo and Octavia all promise as much space, practicality and economy as you could want from a car in their class - but which one delivers the best combination?

In our latest video group test, we test these family cars in every area: cabin space for driver and passengers, interior quality and design, boot capacity, and the driving experience behind the wheel.

All three models on test have a 1.6-litre diesel engine and cost around £20,000. Watch our video road test to see how they performed.
