The Octavia is a automobile that makes so much sense for so many reasons. For a start, it is superbly built, with build quality as good as a Volkswagen. There is plenty of space both inside and also in terms of luggage space. The 1.6-litre engine offers low emissions and therefore is cheap to tax and to run. To drive, it is geared more towards comfort than outright agility (that is why it is a automobile so favoured by taxi drivers), so what you get is a automobile that is great for long trips. They have proven themselves to be ultra reliable too.
The price of the Octavia 1.6 is also very attractive and residuals have remained strong. It is definitely a automobile we would recommend without too much trouble.
