Skoda Octavia Hatchback 1.8T Elegance 4x4 5d (2001/X) - Owner Review

Haldex 4x4 drive system fantastic on wet tarmac with traction control and ESP - this car is VERY good in muddy fields and dealing with ice amd snow. Believe in it, you don't need a clumsy big 4x4.

Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

A lot of car for the money - just amazing value as a near-new demonstrator!

Costs

5 out of 5

Very reasonable service cost; 26mpg round town, fast B-roads and motorway 34-37mpg - delighted bearing in mind the performance.

If you are an individual rather than a pack animal, you may just get to love the badge - buy a BMW to look cool (?) or get an Octavia 4x4 (or VRS) and move to a higher plain - feels cool to me!

Comfort

5 out of 5

Everything is ajustable. Firm seats, adjustable lumbar support. There IS plenty of room in the back, there is! - Beige seat option will show the dirt.
