It is no surprise that the ŠKODA Octavia has been named WhatCar?’s ‘Best family car’ for the third consecutive year. It is smart, spacious, and streamlined, packed with innovative features and storage solutions. New for 2016 is the vRS model, raising the performance bar for family vehicles.
Strong lines, sharp angles and a broad grille define the Octavia, which commands significant on-road presence. The versatile and spacious Hatch and Estate models provide the foundation of the range. For the adventurers out there, the Scout is outfitted with ŠKODA’s ‘Rough Road Package’ featuring underbody protection for when you venture off the beaten track. The brand new vRS model, available as a Hatch or an Estate, is the peak of the range. It is kitted out with a racy rear spoiler and twin stainless steel exhaust pipes.
The Octavia facelift includes a striking front design and new distinctive lighting, an update to the infotainment system, incorporating for the first time full LED headlight technology, while the rear lights boast the same Crystalline detailing that defines the look of the new Octavia starting from £17,055 OTR.
Engine & Performance
With a wide range of engine options, you can tailor the Octavia to suit your drive. The benchmark of the petrol range is the versatile 1.4-litre TSI, which packs 152bhp and returns up to 67.3mpg. A 2.0-litre TSI engine sits at the top of the petrol range, providing a seriously impressive 233bhp.
The diesel range begins with the economical 1.6-litre TDI, which returns up to 74.3mpg combined and emits 100g/km of CO2. The Greenline III variant, available on the S, SE, and SE L, emits even less CO2 – at 90g/km. It is kinder to the environment and your wallet, being exempt from vehicle excise duty. The 2.0-litre TDI, which comes in a choice of 152bhp or 186bhp, represents the middle of the range, returning 70.6mpg and 64.2mpg respectively. The Octavia vRS features the powerful 2.0-litre TDI 4x4 DSG vRS, for a fast drive.
The Octavia is packed with technology that engages directly with the road. Driving mode selection, included at the SE trim level and above, offers four driving modes – normal, sport, eco, and a configurable individual mode.
The Octavia automatically tweaks the engine torque, accelerator sensitivity and other components to suit the different driving conditions. Park assist, available for all trims excluding S, does the job for you, steering into a space whilst you control the clutch.
It is essential that you can rely on your car’s safety features. That is why the Octavia is fitted with seven airbags, with the option of rear side airbags. It also utilises an Automatic post collision braking system, bringing the car under control should a collision occur.
Preventative safety measures include a Driver fatigue sensor to ensure you take regular breaks, and Crew protection assistant that tightens seatbelts and closes the sunroof if it senses an imminent collision.
