If you’re looking for an elegant car with generous space, it’s time you took a test drive in the all new Skoda Octavia.
This is a car which has been transformed by clever design, creating an all-rounder which is perfect for modern driving.
It does everything well and drives beautifully. It handles well and has just the right amount of weight to glide around corners.
The new Octavia comes in a hatchback or an estate car and it is 4689 mm long and 1829 mm wide. The exterior has been given a sharp and elegant design and it sports the new Skoda badge.
There is a sporty feel to the narrower front grille between the attractive LED headlights, coupled with 16-inch allow wheels.
Space is always so important in a Skoda. The cars are known for it, especially with their spacious boots which rival the Mercedes E class.
This new Skoda is no different, a key element protected by the designers in the Octavia’s transformation with a 600-litle boot on the hatchback and 640-litre boot on the estate.
There is generous head room for tall drivers and front seat passengers, good leg room in the large footwells, and 78 mm of knee room for rear seat passengers.
There is also a large glove box and a substantial, cooled covered storage space under the front arm rest where you can hide electronics, valuables, or store your packed lunch. There’s a much more upmarket feel about this interior than the previous incarnation of the car.
The adjustable seats are so comfortable and there are Simply Clever features which are lovely touches, such as the ice scraper and umbrella in the door.
Driving in the 21st Century is made so much easier by the clear dashboard, large infotainment screen, and USB ports.
The high position of the screen ensures you don’t have to take your eyes far from the road.
Visibility is excellent all round, with large rear windows and thin pillars, making manoeuvering and spotting other vehicles easier.
There are four diesel and five petrol versions, eight manual and one semi-automatic.
Engine sizes are: 1.0 TSI; 1.5TSI; 2.0 TDI; 2.0 TDI 150.
