The ŠKODA Octavia Estate possesses all the elegance and flexibility of its hatchback sibling but offers even greater passenger and cargo space. Not only that, this practical family car delivers affordable motoring and comes generously equipped, too.
The Octavia is an object lesson in understated style. It’s the kind of car that looks just as good in the driveway as it does when nipping around town or cruising along the motorway. This smartly contoured vehicle impresses from top to bottom, with its practical and chic roof rails to its eye-catching and lightweight 16-inch alloy wheels, both of which are provided as standard. The vehicle features distinctive LEDs too, including daytime running lights and tail lights, as well as flamboyantly fashioned door mirrors, which are also electrically adjustable and heated. The car is available in a range of colours too, such as Pacific Blue, which is provided free of charge. Optional paint finishes include Candy White and Corrida Red, as well as metallic and pearl finishes such as Race Blue and Black Magic.
The Octavia comes in a range of trim levels, from the well-equipped S to the exquisite and fully-fitted Laurin & Klement. The latter offers all the practicality of the preceding grades, while pushing the envelope further when it comes to luxury, including, for instance, a power-adjustable, lumbar-supporting driver’s seat with memory functionality.
Inside, the ŠKODA Octavia is upholstered in dapper black cloth as standard. The car also features electric windows and air conditioning, ensuring that the cabin’s ambient temperature is always easy to maintain. A 610-litre boot is one of the biggest in the Octavia’s class; with rear seats folded, this expands to an impressive 1,780 litres. Audio entertainment is provided by an eight-speaker sound system, while satellite navigation is available with SE L grades and higher.
Fitted as standard is a 1.0-litre 115bhp petrol engine, which delivers 0-60mph in less than ten seconds, up to 58.9mpg and a 110g/km CO2 emissions figure. Offering even greater fuel efficiency is a 1.6-litre 110bhp diesel unit that returns as much as 76.4mpg and produces emissions as low as 99g/km.
The vehicle comes with a five-star crash-test rating, as awarded by Euro NCAP, and an array of driver aids and passive safety features. These include Electronic Stability Control, which automatically detects and minimises loss of traction to help enable a seamless driving experience. The Octavia is protected by an anti-theft alarm system and comes with remote central locking too.
The Octavia was the outright winner in What Car? magazine’s Best Family Car category in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Auto Express declared the vehicle to be the Estate Car of the Year in 2017.
