Which used Skoda Octavia hatchback should I buy?

Engines

If you can stretch to one of the newer, 1.0-litre or 1.5-litre engined cars, we reckon these are the best balance of punch and fuel economy. However, they're still rare and relatively pricey, so for most budgets, the older 1.2-litre and 1.4-litre engines will do just fine. The latter is our favourite, as it was far more popular when new and so is now easier to find on the used market; what's more, it offers a great balance of efficiency, performance and smoothness. If you do enough miles to require the fuel efficiency of a diesel, the 2.0 is the one to have, as it's smoother and punchier than the 1.6.

Trims

Almost any version of the Octavia will be satisfying to own, but we like the SE best of all. Mind you, if you're flush with cash and buying a later model, an upgrade to the SE Technology version isn't such a bad idea.

Our favourite Skoda Octavia 1.5 TSI EVO 150 SE
