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 L

SE L trim brings Alcantara and leather seat trim, LED headlights, power-folding door mirrors, privacy glass and automatic emergency braking. A nice added extra is the handy umbrella kept under the passenger’s seat.

Engine:

1.6 TDI

A good engine if value for money is a priority, because it’s super-economical. However, the five-speed gearbox makes it a little noisy on the motorway, it’s not the most muted engine when revved hard, and neither is it that quick.
