The Skoda Octavia Estate offers a vast boot considering its size, and generous space for occupants. It's far more than just a big box on wheels, though. The relatively plush interior, generally cosseting ride and frugal engines make it a fantastic car for covering big distances in. The iV plug-in hybrid makes financial sense for company car users.

There’s no mistaking a vRS for any other Octavia, thanks to its big 19in wheels, more aggressive styling and black detailing. Inside you’ll find vRS-branded, heated front sports seats, Alcantara trim, aluminium pedals, a black headlining and a heated sports steering wheel with perforated leather. Toys include adaptive LED headlights, keyless entry and start, two-zone climate control, ambient LED lighting and a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and sat-nav.

Our pick for company car drivers is the brilliant plug-in hybrid 1.4 TSI iV 204. It sits in a very low BIK tax band and, as far as performance goes, it'll rattle off 0-62mph in just 7.8sec; although it's less rapid in electric-only mode it's pokey enough and can officially do up to 41 miles on a single charge. That's very competitive for a plug-in hybrid and should cover the majority of commutes. Charging takes 6hrs from a three-pin plug or 3hrs from a 7kW wall box.
