Our overall rating:
Hot hatchbacks are designed to provide thrills alongside decent space and practicality, but few place as much emphasis on the latter as the Skoda Octavia vRS. The recipe is simple: take one cavernous Octavia, fit it with the range’s most powerful engines, adjust its suspension to cope with the extra speed and hey presto: the sporty vRS is born.
The Octavia vRS is up against some seriously talented opposition, including the Hyundai i30N, Volkswagen Golf GTI and Honda Civic Type R. However, unlike those cars, the Octavia vRS is available in two bodystyles – hatchback and estate.
But is its performance up to scratch and can it mix with the best for fun handling? Read on to find out how the Octavia vRS compares. And if you're thinking of buying any Octavia, don't forget to check out our latest deals to see how much you could save.
