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.

get the best price

The one to go for if you’re a company car user. It includes an upgraded infotainment system with online connectivity that puts a range of downloadable information at your disposal, plus an in-built sat-nav and a wi-fi hotspot. Front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking are also standard. However, it is offered only with the 1.6 TDI 115 or 2.0 TDI 150 and has restricted finance options.

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.
