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.

First off, all versions have a few handy treats, like the umbrella in the passenger door and an ice scraper clipped to the fuel filler flap. SE trim is far from stripped out, with 16in alloy wheels, a leather-trimmed steering wheel, two-zone climate control, keyless start, automatic lights and wipers, cruise control, a 10.0in infotainment touchscreen, a DAB radio, Bluetooth, x2 USB-C ports, voice control, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and front-seat lumbar adjustment. SE First Edition swaps the 10.0in touchscreen for a smaller 8.3in version but adds digital dials (Virtual Cockpit) instead.

Our pick of the range is the excellent 148bhp 1.5 TSI 150 petrol. You need to rev it harder than the diesel 2.0 TDI 150 at times but when you do it's even brisker (0-62mph takes just 8.5sec). It's also quieter and costs a whole lot less, and should still manage decent fuel economy, too.
