The Octavia’s huge boot is a big selling point. It’s longer and taller than most comparably priced estates. And it’s a practical, squared-off shape, although there’s a drop from the low loading lip to the boot floor itself unless you add the variable-height boot floor (this is standard on SE L and Laurent & Klement trims).
A couple of bag hooks, some straps that are ideal for securing a bottle of washer fluid or oil, and a 12v socket come as standard. You can also add various practical storage devices including a double-sided boot floor, with one side rubberised so you can rinse it down easily, and a net to hold loose items in place.
You can also add a full-size steel or space-saver spare wheel. They sit beneath the boot floor, so don’t impinge into the luggage area.
A powered tailgate is an expensive option across the range.
