Review

First and foremost, the Skoda Octavia offers generous space for occupants and a massive boot that dwarfs most competitors from the class above. It's far more than just a big box on wheels, though; its plush interior, cosseting ride and frugal engines make it a fantastic car for covering big distances in.

get the best price

SE L gets you a few more luxuries such as 17in alloy wheels, “microsuede” upholstery on the dashboard, rear privacy glass and keyless entry.

This plug-in performance model combines a 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol engine with a punchy electric motor to give 242bhp. It’s quick for an Octavia, taking 7.3sec to go from 0-62mph, although that’s rather sluggish by hot hatch standards.
