Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

4 out of 5

It's an Audi without the £,000 on the end of the price tag.

Costs

4 out of 5

It's a bit thirsty if you give it some, but a respectable 35mpg on motorways.

Driving

4 out of 5

Excellent. Holds road well and ESP, 4WD on demand works really well.

Performance

4 out of 5

It's an S3 in a Skoda shell, takes many by suprise!

Reliability

3 out of 5

Only failed once (ESP module failed) - still drivable, under warranty.

It's the best looking Skoda I've seen and the first car I've owned that passers by have remarked on - it's really a Skoda, honest.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Excellent in front, rear - well don't put 2 adults and baby seat in for more than a few miles - it's a squish.
