hours on the road in the ŠKODA Octavia. This car means business with its strong
build and elegant body. Available as a Hatch, an Estate, and a Scout with more
muscular features, it’s a versatile car with an option to suit every lifestyle.
With its crisp, taut body, the Octavia has a modern look that’s equally at home on the motorway, country lanes, city streets or the office car park. Features such as deep contours, split headlights and a wide air intake on the bumper mean you’ll be proud to park it on your driveway. Full LED technology on the headlights in the SE L trim level make it instantly eye-catching on the road.
If you’re based in the city, the Hatch works well with its more compact shape. A longer shape is offered in the Estate which affords extra room in the rear seats and boot. For drives across the country consider the new Scout, which adopts the estate shape and boasts the added benefit of protective cladding and a front skidplate.
In a car that’s destined for long journeys, it will come as no surprise that the new ŠKODA Octavia is made for comfort. Adjust the seat’s height to find the perfect position to give you the best view ahead, and tuck essential items neatly into extra stowage compartments, including one underneath the seats. The dashboard is designed around the 6.5-inch touchscreen that sits in the centre, with a few other controls placed below. It provides an intuitive experience with everything close at hand and easy to use. Air conditioning is standard, but you can upgrade just one trim level to get climate control, and there is the option to add heated seats to make the car even more inviting in winter. With 590 litres of boot space to fill in the Hatch, and 610 litres in the Estate, it’s a practical choice too.
With a range of engines to choose from, you can drive the ŠKODA Octavia that best suits your driving style. Select a petrol TSi or diesel TDi, both with direct fuel injection technology, depending on your preference, and enjoy dynamic performance. Sizes vary from 113bhp to 181bhp, and most of the options boast relatively low CO2 emissions of between 103 to 113. There is the option of a four-wheel drive variant for increased traction and responsiveness. Models at the SE trim level and upwards boast Drive Mode Select, allowing you to adjust the performance to suit your mood.
Use your smartphone apps and listen to your choice of music thanks to DAB digital radio, USB ports and Bluetooth and Smartlink+ connectivity. These are controlled via the 6.5-inch touchscreen, and if you step up to the SE trim level it will come with voice controls so it’s even easier to manage while on the move. The SE L makes light work of long journeys with its satellite navigation and stretched eight-inch touchscreen.
You can add a number of extras to make the ŠKODA Octavia more suited to your needs. These include rear parking sensors and a reversing camera to take the guesswork out of parking and manoeuvring in the city. There’s also the option of adaptive cruise control, which prevents you getting too close to cars in front when you’re in relaxation mode.
