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

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 114bhp 2.0 TDI 116 offers decent performance with 0-62mph in 10.4sec and good mid-range shove. It's also officially able to average over 65mpg.
