Increased space and reliability make the ŠKODA Octavia Estate a popular family car. It is just as suited to business use, with highly professional looks and premium interior finishes.
The estate car is set apart from the Octavia hatchback by the longer wheelbase and added roof bars. On the standard model, the rails are in smart black to match the door handles and mirror caps. Higher trims change these accents to the body colour, and raise the 16-inch alloy wheels to 17 or 18 inches.
The quality of the upholstery and other cabin finishes make it easier to settle in and enjoy the drive. A leather-covered steering wheel and height-adjustable seat create a comfortable driving position. Rear seats have integrated ISOFIX child seat points, and can be folded down to make the boot space reach 1,740 litres.
At every equipment level, you have the choice between a petrol or diesel engine. Capacities, performance and emissions levels depend on the wheel size you specify for the estate.
Automatic energy recovery keeps the Octavia economical, as does pioneering GreenLine technology. Diesel models can return as much as 80.7mpg combined and slash emissions to only 90g/km of CO2.
Those figures make sense for both individuals and business drivers, as various road taxes and charges are similarly cut down.
The Octavia is one of many new ŠKODA cars to earn a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. Front, side, driver's knee and curtain airbags around the car make seven in total. The front passenger airbag can be turned off for putting a child seat next to the driver. You can also trust in the comprehensive Electronic Stability Control and the automatic post-collision braking system.
Clever technology does not end with the safety specification – there is plenty in the estate to keep you informed and entertained. ŠKODA's Bolero infotainment system is standard, on an intuitive touchscreen display with easily-readable menu screens.
