The Octavia shares components and engineering expertise with the Audi A3/A4, SEAT Toledo and VW Golf/Bora - which should put pay to any stale old jokes about the Skoda marque. The Czech car maker has hurtled up-market with these keenly-priced and well built medium hatchbacks and estates, which are essentially Volkswagens in all but name.

Buying used

It's good quality and reliable, and punchy to drive, but the badge image which is tenuously cool when new, gets even less cool the older the car gets.

May depreciate more compared to more prestigiously badged rivals, but if you choose a diesel and pick the extras cleverly you'll have a good deal to offer anyone looking for a good budget buy.
