Used Skoda Octavia Hatchback (1998 - 2005) Comfort

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.

One of the smaller of the family car bunch, room in the back is slightly limited. Legs won't be able to stretch out much, but shoulder to shoulder room is okay.

The boot is enormous - they actually could have sacrificed some of it for the space in the rear. You'll fit a load of luggage in with ease.

Behind the wheel

In a nice neat, sensible nod to its VW Golf heritage, the dash is neatly laid out and simple to use. Drivers of all sizes will find a comfortable seating position.
