Find out why thousands of families across the UK are turning to the ŠKODA Octavia for spacious, practical and affordable motoring.
Priced to rival small family cars, but with dimensions that rival cars from the class above, the sharp-suited Octavia provides incredible amounts of interior space. The elegant, restrained styling promises to age gracefully, and every version sits with smart alloy wheels.
Choose the racy vRS model and you’ll find sports suspension, bespoke 18-inch alloys and a sporty body kit, including deep air intakes and a subtle spoiler.
The Octavia’s generous proportions ensure comfortable accommodation for the whole family, with a large boot easily accessed by the practical hatchback - don’t be fooled by the saloon-like styling. The boot will swallow almost everything a busy family can throw at it, but when you need extra room you can simply split and fold the rear seats.
Air conditioning will keep everyone aboard comfortable, and there’s an eight-speaker stereo system with DAB digital radio, Bluetooth® and USB input as standard. It’s controlled by a touchscreen infotainment system that sits at the centre of the dashboard, bracketed by an array of simple switches.
Choose from six punchy engines to power the Octavia: three petrol and three diesel. Engineered to deliver a fantastic blend of performance and fuel-efficiency, CO2 emissions start from just 90g/km in the 108bhp 1.6 TDI Greenline edition, reducing your road tax and fuel bills.
If you crave performance, the most powerful petrol and diesel engines are offered in sporty vRS trim. Both 2.0-litre units, the petrol has 218bhp, and the torquey diesel has 182bhp with explosive in-gear acceleration.
Every Octavia is designed around family life, so comes with a generous list of standard safety equipment. Seven airbags are fitted to every version, and twin rear side airbags are an additional option. Also included is stability control, hill-hold assist, tyre pressure monitoring, and a system that automatically brakes the car in the immediate aftermath of a collision to prevent additional impacts.
Rear parking sensors are standard on SE trim and above, and SE L models feature satellite navigation, cruise control and automatic headlights and windscreen wipers.
