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 a bit of a price jump to SE L, but it's still not exorbitant in the grand scheme of things. You get plenty of useful kit, such as 17in alloys, privacy glass, front and rear parking sensors, sat-nav, power-folding door mirrors, suede trim, heated front seats, adaptive cruise control and keyless entry. SE L First Edition tops that off with ambient lighting, the blind spot warning and a powered driver's seat.

The 148bhp 2.0 TDI 150 is a really impressive performer and great if for towing. Not only can it get the Octavia Estate from 0-62mph in a very respectable 8.8sec but, more importantly, it also pulls like a train from low revs. It certainly feels punchier than the 2.0-litre hybrid Toyota Corolla Touring Sports, which has more power. It's RDE2 compliant and officially averages around 65mpg.
