Which used Skoda Octavia estate should I buy?

Tough one, this, because for our money the best Octavias come in petrol form, but only around a fifth of Octavia estates sold were powered by petrol. The rest are diesels, which makes diesel versions much easier to find.

If you're prepared to put in the legwork to find a petrol model, we'd recommend you do so. You're likely to find the 1.4-litre engine to be the easiest to find, which is handy as it's one of the best engines, with a winning blend of efficiency, punch and smoothness. If, however, you'd rather settle for the easier-to-find diesel version, or need one because you cover lots of miles every year, then the 2.0 is the one to have, as it's smoother and punchier than the 1.6.

We think the SE is the best Octavia model, meanwhile, although if you can stretch to it and you're buying a later model, an upgrade to the SE Technology version isn't such a bad idea.
