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
The trimSee full equipment
There’s no mistaking a vRS for any other Octavia, thanks to its big 19in wheels, more aggressive styling and black detailing. Inside you’ll find vRS-branded, heated front sports seats, Alcantara trim, aluminium pedals, a black headlining and a sports steering wheel with perforated leather. Toys include adaptive LED headlights, keyless entry and start, two-zone climate control, ambient LED lighting and a 10.0in touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and sat-nav.
