The Skoda Octavia is currently available on finance at 0% APR. The Skoda Octavia is one of the biggest small family cars available, six foot adults can comfortably sit in the rear and the boot is extremely spacious. A wide range of engines are offered which include six petrol and three diesels.
The majority of the engines are available with manual or twin-clutch DSG transmissions, with a new range of TSI and Common Rail diesel engines offering exceptional fuel economy and low emissions.
The interior of the Skoda Octavia boasts materials of a high quality and solid feel, and the interior shames many more expensive models for its fit and finish. The instrument panel is a great example of progressive, elegant design, well arranged with soft, touch-friendly surfaces. White LED illumination provides an elegant contrast against the black instrument panel while the traditional green under-lighting of the rest of the electronic components creates a sound combination which does not act as a disturbance when driving.
The Skoda Octavia scores high for comfort and it handles well too. The Skoda Octavia is built on the same platform as the VW Golf, which helps to account for the fine balance between crisp handling and a comfy ride.
