The Octavia has become something of a byword for family practicality and value and it is easy to see why. There is a lot to like about this car, including the engines which range from a 1.2 litre petrol to a 2 litre turbo diesel and all offer a fine blend of performance and economy. There is acres of head and leg room for occupants in both the front and the rear as well as a decent sized boot that can be further expanded by folding the split rear seats. There is a good level of standard equipment on all cars that includes alloy wheels, air conditioning, DAB radio and Bluetooth/USB connectivity. It drives well with perfectly weighted steering. The Octavia in a nutshell? Spacious, nice to spend time in, affordable and easy to live with.
Plenty of storage spaces, cubby-holes and USB ports
