Why Lease A Skoda Octavia?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
On the large side for the family hatchback sector, most of the Octavia’s longer length results in a massive 600-litre boot on the hatch which is nearly 50% bigger than most of its rivals, including the Ford Focus, Honda Civic, and Volkswagen Golf. Just be mindful if you choose an Octavia plug-in hybrid – the batteries live under the boot floor, reducing its capacity by 150 litres.
A very large boot doesn’t mean passengers suffer, though, and 5 people can be carried very comfortably. Children could probably play a game of football in the back and you wouldn’t notice. Head- and legroom are ample, even for long-legged people, and with equally spacious door bins and compartments, their phones and wallets are also well catered for.
Encompassing petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid technology, the Octavia’s engine choice is as impressive as its load-lugging ability. The efficient diesels return high-50s to high-60s mpg, the petrols’ economy pitched from low-40s to mid-50s according to official economy tests. The plug-in hybrid iV models are able to travel up to 37 miles on electric power alone before the petrol engine kicks in.
Octavia HatchbackThe core Octavia bodystyle is a 5-door ‘liftback’ hatchback.
Octavia EstateThe Skoda Octavia is also available as a 5-door estate.
Trim LevelsSESE TechnologySE LvRSValue for money is a traditional Skoda trait and the Octavia offers a wealth of standard kit. Auto lights and wipers, cruise control, dual-zone air conditioning, LED front and rear lights, and 16-inch alloy wheels are all standard. Voice control, wireless Apple CarPlay connectivity and a 10-inch colour touchscreen DAB radio system add further high-tech touches.
The Skoda Octavia Vs Competitors
Skodas are generally reliable and rank highly in customer satisfaction surveys, but should anything go awry, there is a standard 3-year/60,000-mile warranty. This can be extended to 5 years and 100,000 miles for around £200, but the Octavia is made with tried and trusted mechanical components and well-built, so there should be little to find fault with.
In hatchback guise, the Skoda Octavia has a massive 600 litres of boot space with the rear seats in their upright position. That easily trumps both a Ford Focus and Volkswagen Golf, but it’s less than a Honda Civic if you choose an Octavia plug-in hybrid. Despite its square shape, the Octavia estate only offers 40 litres more than the hatchback, but its 1700-litre capacity is 150 litres more when the rear seats are folded down. In fact the Octavia’s carrying capacity is so vast, it’s not far off its larger Superb sibling. True witchcraft.
Drivers looking to lease an Octavia can choose between 4 trim levels. The SE is the well-equipped entry level model, while the SE Business adds more interior technology and is focused on fleets. Customers wanting luxury should choose the SE L, but if you want sporty, the vRS is the performance member of the Octavia family.
Every Octavia has parking sensors, but only models from SE Technology upwards have both front and rear warning systems. A rear-view camera is an extra-cost option on every Octavia hatch or estate, as is a guided park assistance system which automatically slots the car into a suitable parking space.
In addition to its better-than-class-average boot, the Octavia has acres of cabin space. Rear head- and legroom are impressive, and the back seat can easily accommodate 3 passengers with room to spare. There’s loads of space up front, too. Large door pockets, a scattering of cupholders, and even a chilled glovebox are all provided, while a centre armrest offers places to store valuables.
Its huge cabin and value for money are traditional Octavia traits that still hold great appeal today if you’re seeking to lease a practical family car. Excellent quality and a choice of efficient petrol, diesel and plug-in hybrid engines make the Octavia an enticing leasing proposition, with the added assurance of VW Group reliability.
