Which used Skoda Octavia vRS hatchback should I buy?
Whether or not you choose the estate version depends on your individual needs. It offers more space in the boot and a more useful opening, especially if you have a dog. However, we’d stick with the hatch. We’d also choose a petrol engine over a diesel, for its smoothness, although if you’re likely to do high miles we wouldn’t blame you if you looked for a diesel. We’d probably seek out a two-pedal dual-clutch car, too, as it’s more convenient in town and slightly quicker.
Our favourite Skoda Octavia vRS: 2.0 245 DSG
