The ŠKODA Octavia is the recipient of several awards, including Best Family Car for 2016, which was presented by What Car? This spacious, practical and well-equipped hatchback comes in a number of trim levels, starting with S, SE, GreenLine III and SE Sport grades.
The Octavia is a good-looking hatchback that would enhance any household driveway or business parking space. It rides on lightweight and stylish 16-inch alloy wheels, which are conveniently protected with anti-theft bolts. The vehicle comes with a number of other useful features, including tinted glass, which minimises the effects of the sun’s rays, ensuring that cabin temperature remains at satisfactory levels. Power-adjustable and heated door mirrors are also featured, helping to eliminate blind spots, while quickly removing condensation or ice.
The ŠKODA Octavia’s roomy five-person cabin provides the driver with a height-adjustable seat and a three-spoke leather steering wheel, allowing him or her to swiftly establish a comfortable position. Other standard features include power-operated front windows and air conditioning, ensuring that a pleasant cabin climate is always easy to maintain. Among the vehicle’s range of stowage provision is a cooling glovebox, which features adjustable settings. The Octavia possesses an illuminated 590-litre boot, which is capacious enough in its own right. However, should you need greater cargo volume, simply fold the rear seats to achieve a considerable 1,580-litre capacity.
The Octavia is fitted with a 1.0-litre 113bhp petrol engine as standard. Attached to a six-speed manual gearbox, this delivers up to 62.8mpg and a 104g/km CO2 emissions figure. Offering even more fuel efficiency is 1.6-litre diesel unit, which returns as much as 72.4mpg and emissions as low as 99g/km. This 108bhp engine is available as an option with entry-level S grades.
Technology and safety
An eight-speaker sound system is included for your listening enjoyment, offering the crisp and clear tones provided by DAB digital radio. Bluetooth connectivity and USB, SD and AUX ports are included too, as is a 6.5-inch touchscreen display, which, among other things, provides access to traffic reports.
Awarded a five-star crash-test rating by Euro NCAP, the ŠKODA Octavia comes with a raft of driver aids such as Electronic Stability Control, Anti-lock Braking System and Hill-hold Control. Also included is XDS (also known as torque vectoring), which provides greater control when, for instance, the car is taking corners at speed.
A number of passive safety elements are featured too, such as ISOFIX child-seat fixtures, seven airbags, a driver’s seatbelt warning system and height-adjustable front and rear head restraints.
