The Skoda Octavia 2017 version is the reworked model from the 2013 and has some great style changes to keep it modern. The new car has split the lights into two with different tail lights which are all LED and a new grill design which is great as well. The car surely looks more modern than some of its predecessor and offers a lot of value for money for the price it comes at. The most important change on the revised Octavia is the infotainment system. You get an 8 inch screen which is nice and the buttons are easy to use and it comes with apple car play and android auto.
You get a 9 inch screen which is an extra. The interiors are good with well made interiors with new climate control buttons. The car is practical with huge door bins, and cubby spaces and the passenger comfort is also comfortable with decent knee room and head room as well. This is one of the reasons why taxi cab drivers use the Skoda Octavia which has impressive room behind. The practicality is also excellent with a large boot on offer.
Most of the car’s parts is shared with the Volkswagen Golf because they own Skoda but offers a different driving experience. The car is great to drive and goes around corners very well. You get various petrol options from a 1.0L et al and the best is the 1.4L turbo petrol which gives you 54mpg and has adequate power on offer. There is a 2.0L turbo petrol available if you want performance and has better suspension. The car is great to drive and the performance options do not really go well with the value for money proposition unless you want it to be nippy.
