Driving position could be a little better and steering could be a lot better, but then it is a standard family hatchback.

Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Just about every bit has been stolen from the VW/Audi parts bin, for a whole lot less money.

Costs

4 out of 5

4 wheel drive system can be expensive, but still cheap by any standard.

Driving

3 out of 5

Driving position could be a little better and steering could be a lot better, but then it is a standard family hatchback.

Performance

5 out of 5

150Bhp matched to 4 wheel drive means good power and a massive amount of grip. Wolf in sheep's clothing.

Reliability

4 out of 5

VW running gear matched with the Audi engine, solid.

Image

3 out of 5

It doesn't have one, but if performance and cost are more important than image, they don't come much better.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Elegance, so all the trimmings, switch to turn off the passenger airbag is an option though, which means baby is in the back.

Security

5 out of 5

Good alarm, and who wants a Skoda anyway, badge is the biggest security feature. Full closure only works with key though.
