The Skoda Octavia is one of the best family cars around. Spacious, reliable, well built and good to drive, it also comes with a great range of engines.

Buying used

The Octavia is a great second hand buy and you can end up with a superbly practical and well built hatchback at a bargain price. The Classic (later S) is best avoided unless you're on a tight budget - instead aim for an Ambiente (later SE) or Elegance while the 1.8 TSI is the best engine choice. If you want to save money however go for a Greenline which offers superb economy and is cheap to tax.

The Octavia is developing quite a following among private buyers who appreciate the good value it offers and as a result used prices are strengthening. A well cared for example will fetch a decent price while a full service history will always help.
