This is the new Skoda Octavia! Now we know that the Czech manufacturer may not be held in such high regard as its German rivals, and they’re not exactly known for being the most exciting cars. But when you consider just how much car you get for a relatively low price, along with a huge choice of engines and trims to choose from so you can spec the car just to your liking, is it time the Octavia hatchback and estate are considered alongside the class leaders? Stick with Mat and find out in his latest in-depth review!

  • On this occasion, I want to say that the channel is very interested in its variety of cars that are on the tests, but I honestly do not like this version of the tests by the tester. There are too many ironic jokes and for no reason the car is condemned just because it is not something special. I get the impression that Mat is somehow used to their powerful special cars and has got a fashion line. Well, in relation to that, not everything that Škoda has is appreciated.

  • Dimensions of the boot-space (iV) would be useful. Thanks.

    • According to what I was able to find out, it should be 600 litres for liftback version and 640 litres for combi. That are some mammoth sized dimensions in my opinion and rivals the previous generation Škoda Superb.

  • Oh wow, another FWD Škoda. Can't wait to see at least 3 of them crashed every day. The people who drive these cars are the worst. They for some reason always want to race, in this freaking 1.0 liter. Bruh, a 30 ton truck accelerates faster on a hill than this shit. And they want to race my e91 320D... Yeah... I don't understand, it's almost like they are irritated that I have a BMW and they want prove something? Like wtf... This comes from a Slovak guy too, Škodas are more common than rat shit here.

  • Carwow though It shows you that you are not by taste an admirer of the Skoda brand, criticizing nonsense, for me and for many the Skoda and in this case the Octavia is a very good saloon or combi to take into account when purchasing a car of a great quality, which offers you high security, and a very special permomance for a reasonable price.

  • 11:47 damn, in the 2016 model, the washer fluid has a small hole with a cap that doesn't want to stay open, and the stand to keep the engine lid up is right next to it. Filling the washer fluid is pretty annoying, but fixing only one of those problems would make it possible with just two hands. Apparently they've fixed all those problems.

  • Skoda are now more VW than VW. They are cleverly designed and with excellent interiors, given that they share the same engines and tech as VW and Audi and have excellent design and quality I really see no reason to spend more on the more expensive cars. I would take this over a Golf.

  • needed DSG and gave up as I lease and they wanted 5,500 up front - even for a factory order - but even tho I wanted it I gave up and ordered a VW golf 8 where lease price was much better without the huge initial 12-14 week wait but the DSG for the Octavia seemed less certain on build time. Shame as love my current octavia

  • The Octavia sedan (saloon?) is the only modern car (that I can think of) that comes with a rear wiper that also has a trunk (boot) yet technically isn’t a hatchback. Idk why other sedans/saloons don’t have a rear wiper.
