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.

The 148bhp diesel is an impressive performer. Not only can it get the Octavia from 0-62mph in a very respectable 8.7sec but, more importantly, it pulls strongly from low revs. It's a great fit for the car, whether you're travelling one-up or with the family and a boot full of luggage.
