When choosing a family car, Skoda's rival to the Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf shouldn't be overlooked. With the Skoda Octavia hatchback, capacious Skoda Octavia Estate and sporty Skoda Octavia vRS all available, the chances are there's an Octavia to suit you.

While the Estate might be your first choice if space and practicality mean everything, the family hatchback version is no slouch when it comes to versatility – its class-leading boot can easily beat its Focus and Golf hatchback rivals for size. Meanwhile, a lengthy equipment list, competent and economical engines and a smooth motorway ride give you plenty of other reasons to consider an Octavia.
