Review

The Octavia confirms its place as a class-leading hatchback purely by the amount of space on offer, with a boot that’s longer and far more useable than almost any of its rivals. It’s also incredibly well priced for a car with such substance and gets plenty of equipment regardless of which trim you choose. For a practical, useable and enjoyable hatchback, it’s hard to beat the Octavia.

Trim:

SE

This is our favourite for private buyers, because it adds rear parking sensors, manual driver and passenger lumbar adjustment, a front centre armrest, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, dual-zone climate control and rear electric windows – all for a reasonable uplift in cost.

Engine:

1.0 TSI

The best-value engine in the range for low-mileage drivers. Doesn’t feel strained at all, despite the car’s size. It’s refined, easy to drive smoothly, feels punchy enough around town and manages adequately on the motorway. All this and it’s cheap, too.
