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. 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: 1.5 TSI

Our favourite engine in the Octavia range is this punchy 148bhp 1.5-litre turbo petrol. We reckon it's worth the extra over the entry-level 1.0 TSI.
