Having 5 doors, I always thought a sporty hatchback needed to have 3 but so glad it has the extra.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Likes to have a bit of fun with a bit of sensibility chucked in.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
A bit 50/50 with opinions, people that know the new Skoda name really like it, the people stuck on the old image don't.

Would you buy this car again and why?
100% Yes, it ticks all the boxes I had and more. It's easy to live with, thrilling and cost effective.

What are you likely to buy next?
Not planning on getting rid of this anytime soon ;-).

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
An absolute dream! It's got all the power you could want when needed but can be frugal and return great MPG when driving normally. The DSG box is smooth and works perfectly, you hardly even notice gear changes.

What's it like to park?
Good views from all the windows make it a doddle to park.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing so far.

What's most practical about your car?
Having 5 doors, I always thought a sporty hatchback needed to have 3 but so glad it has the extra.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Bluetooth, it's great as it works with the in car computer and can stream music as well as accept and make calls.
