ŠKODA OCTAVIA in Middlesbrough Cleveland
The OCTAVIA is a family car you can trust. Available as a hatchback or estate, it offers premium-segment technologies like the Virtual Cockpit and Full LED Matrix headlights, with powerful turbocharged engines for a sublime drive. The 1.0 TSI 110PS and 1.5 TSI 150PS engines return over 50mpg combined and there’s a 1.0 TSI e-TEC mild hybrid for greater efficiency. Our pick of the range is the 1.4 TSI iV plug-in hybrid, which has an electric range up to 42 miles on a single charge. Performance lovers should check out the OCTAVIA vRS – this has a 2.0 TSI engine with 245PS or a 2.0 TDI engine with 200PS. vRS models also get 19” alloy wheels, Full LED Matrix headlights with AFS (adaptive front light system), sporty styling, exclusive upholstery, heated front seats and Virtual Pedal. The range starts with SE, which has LED headlights, cruise control and rear parking sensors. SE Technology adds 10” Columbus navigation and front parking sensors, while SE L has 17” alloys, Microsuede seats and keyless entry/ start.
Stylish and spacious with sleek LED headlights and alloy wheels, the OCTAVIA makes a striking first impression. Inside, the cockpit is classy and fully connected, with all versions from SE Technology getting the 10.25” Virtual Cockpit.
Petrol, diesel, mild hybrid or plug-in hybrid? The OCTAVIA gives you choice. The slick DSG gearbox suits the car perfectly and all versions have useful driving aids like lane assist, cruise control, rear parking sensors and an electric parking brake.
The hatch has a 600-litre boot while the estate has a 640-litre boot with additional length, making it easier to stow long items. 60-40 split-folding rear seats with a ski hatch come as standard. vRS models have Virtual Pedal (hands-free tailgate).
Living with it
The OCTAVIA’s sporty handling, punchy engines and handy assistance systems like adaptive cruise control (SE L, vRS) make it a pleasure to drive. Optionally, you can add a rear camera, blind spot detection, travel assist and a head-up display.
