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: vRS

Sporty vRS models have sports suspension, sports seats, LED headlights, 18in alloy wheels, cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and more aggressive-looking bodywork.

Engine: 2.0 TSI 245

Another vRS only engine although we’re yet to try it. Essentially the same as the TSI 230 but with a little bit more poke.
