Skoda Octavia Hatchback 1.9 TDi Ambiente 5d (2001/Y) - Owner Review

I can only compare it to Renault Clio, which I have driven before and it feels a touch more vague but there is plenty of grip. In the wet is a bit weird.

Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Great.

Costs

5 out of 5

Service cost £260 at main dealer. Frugal fuel consumption.

Driving

4 out of 5

Performance

4 out of 5

Good mid range, but there's too little when pulling away and then suddenly too much when the turbo kicks in.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems.

Probably not so great. But this is down to our twisted culture. However, I would feel far more embarrassed driving a BMW.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very nice, good driving position. Poor rear legroom. Fantastic boot.

The only danger is that it could get keyed.
