The Skoda Octavia is a large vehicle, think about the Ford Mondeo and you get the right size, however, it has a price tag that is less than the VW Golf, which is in the same class. We chose the 1.2 TSI engine, as despite it being the entry level version, it does offer a mix of fuel economy and performance, not to mention it comes with a low price tag.
There is a choice of trims but you really don’t have to look any further than the SE trim as this comes with just about everything you might want.
You may wish to check out the diesel engines, more so if you are purchasing the vehicle as a company car. Out of the 1.6 diesel engines the Greenline stands out due to it offering the manual gearbox with six speeds. The standard 1.6 TDI comes with the five-speed fitted as standard. It also comes with the equipment seen on the SE trim.
Anyone wanting strong performance from the Skoda Octavia may wish to look at the 2.0 TDI, which does happen to be rather efficient.
