Review

The Skoda Octavia Estate offers a vast boot considering its size, and generous space for occupants. However, it's far more than just a big box on wheels; its relatively plush interior, generally cosseting ride and frugal engines make it a fantastic car for covering big distances in. Despite the iV’s reduced luggage capacity, it’s big in the back by plug-in hybrid standards, has a strong, smooth engine and gearbox, and makes brilliant financial sense for company car users.

get the best price

For a bit extra over the SE trim, SE Technology, which is aimed at business users mainly, gains floor mats, an auto-dimming rear-view mirror, more distinctive 16in alloy wheels, front parking sensors, x5 USB-C ports and sat-nav.  

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.
