This is the third generation of the popular Skoda Octavia from the Czech maker. It is now 90mm longer and 45mm wider than the previous generation but it also looks more elegant than before.

Equipment

Compared to its rivals, Skoda Octavia equipment levels are fairly generous. Three trims are available: S, SE and Elegance. Skoda says £3,500’ worth of equipment had been added to the new car on the S trim, with £3,890 on SE and £5,300 on the Elegance.

For the first time the Octavia offers what is called a ‘Phone Box’. This is a compartment in the centre console that has a wireless connection for mobile phone.

Skoda Octavia equipment

The S kit list includes 16-inch alloy wheels, intermittent wipers, automatic post-collision braking (see safety section), a 6CD autochanger with DAB radio, Bluetooth, a leather steering wheel, split folding rear seats, electric front windows and door mirrors, air-con, two ISOFIX child seat fittings in the rear and an alarm and immobiliser.

SE models add fancier 16-inch alloys, driver fatigue warning, Skoda’s driving mode system, dual-zone climate control and rear parking sensors.

Elegance versions are packed full of goodies and include all the stuff on the S and SE, as well as 17-inch alloy wheels, alcantara and leather trim, sat-nav, Front Assistant (see safety section), cruise control, electrically adjustable heated and foldable mirrors with boarding spots that shine down to the ground, floor mats, headlight washers, rain-sensing wipers and high beam assist.

Skoda Octavia accessories

Available for the first time in a Skoda is the Adaptive Cruise Assistant that maintains a pre-set distance to the car ahead when cruising on the motorway or dual carriageway.

There’s also an automatic dipped beam, and a Parking Assistant that automatically steers the car into parallel parking spot with the driver using just the brake an accelerator to adjust the speed. Traffic sign recognition is included in the Traveller Assistant Package, which is useful for those who cover a lot of miles.
