Few cars offer as much space for the money as the Skoda Octavia range of cavernous five-door hatchbacks and estates.

Based on the same underpinnings as the Volkswagen Golf, with which it shares its engines and gearboxes too, today’s Skoda Octavia is the third generation of the model which changed perceptions of the brand.

Competing against the likes of the Hyundai i30 and Kia Ceed, the Octavia is a good value proposition, although it’s by no means inexpensive.

Powered by an economical range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, the Skoda Octavia hatchback provides generous space for a family of five with the largest boot in its class too.
