The Skoda Octavia is an excellent family car, it's one of the best hatchbacks around and is a quality product that offers space, equipment and performance. There's not much that can beat it.
All of the engines for the Skoda Octavia offer punchy and economical performance. Among the frugal diesels is the Greenline III which has emissions of 90g/km and economy of 81 mpg. Skoda also offers a 2.0 litre diesel unit for drivers which produces 146bhp and returns 71 mpg while being a smooth and quiet motorway cruiser. There's also a 1.6 litre TDI which produces 104bhp and will return 74 mpg while having emissions of 99g/km.
Among the petrol units, there is an excellent 1.2 litre TSI unit which produces 104bhp and will return 58 mpg and has emissions of 114g/km. All of the engines are coupled to a six speed manual gearbox or a very good seven speed automatic option.
Along with its big boot, the Skoda Octavia has lots of space on board for adults and with the rear seats folded flat, the boot space expands from 590litres to an impressive 1,580litres. The cabin itself has been well-designed and is comfortable.
The build quality is excellent and the Octavia has a strong reputation for reliability. The car is built on the VW Golf platform and offers a lot of equipment as standard including air con, alloy wheels, touchscreen infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity and DAB radio. Other models come with dual zone climate control, rear parking sensors, electric windows and front fog lights.
With this being a family hatchback, the safety standards are also high and equipment includes electronic stability control and seven airbags. Other models come with the firm's automatic braking system if it detects an impending collision.
Essentially, the Skoda Octavia has lots of space, a big boot and a comfortable driving experience for drivers who want a family hatchback that delivers on every front.
