Thinking of buying a used Skoda Octavia?

The style of the car

The Skoda Octavia is available as a hatchback and an estate. All models have five doors and five seats and feature the biggest boot in the class. If you want a no-nonsense car that excels on many fronts, the Octavia is highly recommended. 

How it drives

The Octavia is an excellent car. Around town, it’s easy to drive and park while on the motorway it’s so smooth and quiet the miles pass by unnoticed. The Octavia can easily haul a caravan or horsebox and was a winner at the Tow Car Awards.

In fact, the Octavia is one of our favourite used cars for towing, check out our list.

The interior

The Octavia offers lots of space and will comfortably fit three adults across the rear seats. There’s plenty of leg and head room and it’s easy to get in and out. The hatchback’s boot is very large and you could fit six average-sized suitcases in. As for the estate, you could pack enough luggage for a couple of families in there and still have room to spare. Fold the seats down, and it turns into a little van. That makes it a great active lifestyle car so, whether you’re into mountain biking or hang gliding, it’ll cope with your gear with ease. Skodas are generously equipped as standard with a touch screen and a DAB digital radio.

Running costs and reliability

The Octavia offers so much for so little. Compared to rivals, it’s very keenly priced and there’s plenty around to suit all budgets. The Octavia is also very affordable to run: fuel economy is high and tax, insurance and maintenance costs are low. The Octavia is so reliable it was named the Best Compact Car in the JD Power Dependability Study. It’s also highly rated on safety and was given a five-star Euro NCAP award.

How it compares with similar cars

The Octavia sits in the middle of the Skoda range. It’s bigger than the Fabia small car and smaller than the Superb large family car. Its two main rivals are the Vauxhall Insignia and Ford Mondeo, but it’s bigger than both of these and less expensive to buy. Unsurprisingly, the Octavia’s won several awards including What Car’s 2019 Family Car of the Year.
