Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Skoda Octavia vRS hatchback?

The Volkswagen Golf GTI shares a lot of its underpinnings with this Octavia vRS. It’s a marvellous car, even nicer to drive than the Octavia, and is fast and capable, yet also refined and easy to drive. It has a classy interior, too.

 

The Honda Civic Type R costs substantially more than the vRS, and although it has room for five inside it offers less space, too. However, it’s brilliant to drive, handles superbly, yet is also comfortable and surprisingly easy to live with.
