The Octavia’s exterior features include as standard daytime running lights, alloy wheels and electric front windows. Among the car’s seven trim levels are the high-spec Laurin and Klement, and the range-topping vRS, which offer adaptive front lighting systems and LED daytime running lights.
The spacious cabin comes with a height-adjustable steering wheel and head restraints as standard, and includes a handily illuminated glovebox on the mid-range SE trim and up. A 6.5-inch colour touchscreen on the dashboard which includes DAB radio, Bluetooth and USB input is standard across the car’s range. The vehicle affords plenty of space to front and rear-seated passengers, with substantial door pockets (able to hold 750ml bottles) and deep footwells to maximise comfort. A 590-litre boot can extend to a vast 1,580-litres once the rear seats have been folded.
The Octavia offers a variety of engines across its range, with a choice of four petrols and four diesels. Among these is the efficient Greenline III 1.6-litre diesel, which emits a mere 85kg/km of CO2 and returns an economical 88mpg. For greater power and performance, the flagship vRS comes with a diesel-powered 184bhp engine which delivers 0-60mph in eight seconds. All engines are available with ŠKODA’s fuel-efficient DGS gearbox.
The car’s reputation for reliability and safety is justified. It has been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating, and includes standard safety features such as an Anti-Lock Braking System, driver and passenger airbags and Fatigue Detection.
