The Skoda Octavia Estate is a great mix of space, equipment and affordability, let down slightly by a choppy ride and poor refinement.

Performance

You might imagine the entry-level 1.0-litre petrol engine would struggle to haul around a big estate car, but it’s surprisingly peppy around town or on the motorway. However, with lots of passengers or luggage on board you’d better served by the 1.4 TSI 150 petrol. It’s smooth and quick, while still being affordable to run, making it our pick for the best petrol in the range. Performance from the 1.6-litre diesel is adequate, but the most recommendable diesel option is the 148bhp 2.0 TDI 150, which is both strong and flexible. The sporty vRS models come with a choice of 2.0-litre petrol or diesel engines that are effortlessly quick. A smooth and efficient dual-clutch automatic gearbox is available on all engines. A so-called Scout version, with a chunky body kit, a 30mm raised ride height and four-wheel drive, is also available with the 2.0-litre diesel engine in two power outputs (the higher one reserved for the DSG automatic gearbox). The 148bhp version feels brisk enough so unless you need an auto ‘box, we’d stick to that. A high towing capacity of 2000kg on both Scout models could make it appealing to those who tow regularly, but who don’t want an SUV. It’s impressively capable off-road, with hill descent control and underbody protection as standard.

Ride

For the most part, the Skoda Octavia is comfortable. That’s particularly the case at higher speeds, making it an easy-going, long-distance cruiser. However, around town it fidgets over rippled or undulating surfaces, and a harsh pothole or expansion joint can send a noticeable thump through the cabin. It’s never outright uncomfortable, but it’s not as accomplished as rivals such as the Vauxhall Astra Sports Tourer or VW Golf Estate. Skoda does offer adaptive suspension as an option on the Octavia (although not on the 1.0 petrol and 1.6 diesel models), which helps settle the car over edgier bumps. Yet still the impact of sizeable imperfections will breech the interior, so while the system does deliver an improvement, it’s not by enough to justify its extra cost. The sporty vRS models are harsher than the standard models as a result of their stiffer suspension and bigger alloys. This makes them quite crashy and jarring over rougher surfaces. Scout models are marginally more comfortable than all the others thanks to their 30mm higher ride height helping to smooth out initial bump absorption; the ride comfort is especially impressive over difficult off-road surfaces.

Handling

As a family car, the Octavia Estate ticks all the important boxes. It’s stable, precise, and confidence inspiring, even when being driven quickly. The light steering also helps to make town manoeuvres and parking easy. All but entry-level S and 1.0-litre petrol models have variable driving modes graded Eco, Normal and Sport. They affect the throttle response and steering weight, the responsiveness of the automatic gearbox, if one is fitted, and the climate control. It’s not something that makes a vast difference to your life: Sport mode just makes the steering heavier, which in turn makes it feel less wieldy rather than more sporty. Leave it in Normal and the Octavia is at its most satisfying and a relaxing car to drive. Four-wheel drive is available on the 2.0 TDI engines and standard on the Scout model. It’s an on-demand system, so doesn’t use fuel unnecessarily, but we’d only recommend it if you regularly tackle poor conditions or treacherous tracks. For most people the front-wheel drive models will be more than grippy enough. Scouts may sit a bit higher, but they don’t roll a great deal more than the standard estate. At the other end of the spectrum, the Octavia vRS models’ stiffer suspension delivers better body control, but they don’t scythe into corners as keenly as some rivals, including the Ford Focus ST Estate and Seat Leon Cupra ST.

Refinement

The Octavia’s petrol engines are smooth and quiet, but the diesels are a little noisy compared with the same engines in the VW Golf. That’s particularly true of the 1.6 TDI 115 diesel; it has only five gears, and the lack of a sixth gear to drop the revs on the motorway leads to a lot of excess engine noise. The 2.0 TDI 150, is better, though. All models suffer from more suspension noise – noticeable in the cabin as a distant, resonant boom over town roads – than most other cars in the class. There’s some wind noise on the motorway, but road noise is well suppressed. Meanwhile, the gearchange is slick and accurate, as are the brakes and clutch, which all helps to facilitate smooth driving.

Driving Position

Even entry-level S trim features an adjustable steering wheel and seat. The adjustment range is wide and, together with the well-placed pedals, it all makes for a comfortable driving position. Although the seat is quite firm, it is supportive enough, and most drivers should find it’s comfortable on a long trip. The vRS models have sports seats that are just as comfortable but offer extra side support for when you’re cornering with added zest. Only the top-spec Laurin & Klement version has a powered driver’s seat (it’s an expensive and unnecessary option on the vRS) but in any case, the standard manual seat adjustment on all other models is easy to use, with all of the seat controls being conveniently located. Thanks to a logical layout and clear labelling, using the various dashboard buttons is simple and straightforward, too.

Visibility

Visibility at all corners of the Octavia Estate is very good. It’s easy to judge where the bonnet ends, and large rear and side windows combined with relatively narrow rear pillars makes the view through the rear screen or over your shoulder is as good as it gets. For added help rear parking sensors are standard from SE trim upwards (they’re an expensive option on the S), while front and rear sensors are standard on SE Technology models. A rear-view camera is optional on all but the S trim. An automatic parking system that steers the car into parallel or bay spaces is standard on the Laurin & Klement version and optional on lesser models. And you can upgrade this to include trailer assist, which will help you reverse a trailer or caravan, as well.

Infotainment

The standard 8.0in colour touchscreen is extremely high definition and is the medium through which you control the Octavia’s infotainment system. The system includes a digital radio, Bluetooth and audio streaming. Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink are also standard, which allow you you use some of your smartphone’s apps through the touchscreen, including Google or Apple Maps. The touchscreen is responsive, has logical menu layouts, and the big icons are easy to prod when you’re on the move. An upgraded system with factory-fitted sat-nav and on-board wifi is standard on SE L, SE Technology and includes a 9.2in touchscreen on Laurin & Klement trims (it’s an option on SE and vRS). With these systems you also get on-board connectivity that allows web browsing and live data access, including traffic and weather reports, and the availability of local parking spaces. With eight speakers as standard, the stereo’s sound quality is good by class standards, but it is still a little tinny. An upmarket 10-speaker system is an option on most versions, and standard on Laurin & Klement.

Some of the materials around the lower parts of the cabin and around the seat bases feel more durable than high class, but the plastics in key areas are textured and feel pleasant enough to the touch. The switchgear is well damped, too. SE models and above have contrasting trims on the dash. They brighten things up and are an improvement on the slightly dour, darker finish of the entry-level car.

There’s loads of front cabin space in the Octavia; a very tall driver will certainly be able to get comfortable. Storage is better than most rivals, too. The door pockets are big enough to hold a one-litre bottle and the glovebox is a good, practical size. Behind the gearlever are two fixed cupholders; these will keep your coffee-to-go secure, and ingeniously, grip a drinks bottle so you can twist off the cap one-handed while driving. Another neat touch on SE L models is the umbrella that’s stowed under the passenger’s seat. Skoda’s so-called ‘Simply clever’ package is a worthwhile and reasonably priced option, since it adds a removable phone holder that sits in one of the cupholders, and a lidded bin that fixes into a front door pocket. Even without it there’s still space for a mobile in the cubby at the base of the dash, which for charging is also by a USB socket. SE models and upwards also come with a central armrest, which doubles up as extra storage space.

Rear Space

The Octavia Estate has some of the best rear space of any family estate. Behind a tall driver with their seat pushed back, even a lofty rear-seat passenger will be able to lounge in relative comfort. There’s loads of head and elbow-room, too. Unfortunately, the middle-seat passenger has no choice but to place their feet either side of the car’s raised central tunnel. Still, the big footwells mean this isn’t too restrictive, and the Octavia is still the most comfortable car in the class for three passengers sat in the back. A central armrest with two cupholders is standard on SE models and above. A map pocket on the back of each front seat is also standard, along with a deep cubby in each rear door capable of holding a one-litre drinks bottle.

Seating Flexibility

In terms of its flexibility, the Octavia Estate is pretty conventional. The 60/40 split seats on entry-level S models have to be released from the top of the backrests, which means opening both rear doors. SE trim and above get much more convenient levers either side of the tailgate opening that make life much easier. However, the seats don’t fold completely flat and leave an awkward step in the extended boot floor, that is unless you opt for the variable-height floor. This is standard on SE L and Laurent & Klement versions. All but the entry-level cars have a height-adjustable passenger seat with lumbar adjustment. A fold-flat passenger seat is a well-priced option on the SE trim, and allows you to carry seriously long items if you need to.

Boot Space

The Octavia’s huge boot is a big selling point. It’s longer and taller than most comparably priced estates. And it’s a practical, squared-off shape, although there’s a drop from the low loading lip to the boot floor itself unless you add the variable-height boot floor (this is standard on SE L and Laurent & Klement trims). A couple of bag hooks, some straps that are ideal for securing a bottle of washer fluid or oil, and a 12v socket come as standard. You can also add various practical storage devices including a double-sided boot floor, with one side rubberised so you can rinse it down easily, and a net to hold loose items in place. You can also add a full-size steel or space-saver spare wheel. They sit beneath the boot floor, so don’t impinge into the luggage area. A powered tailgate is an expensive option across the range.

Running Costs

The Octavia Estate is very competitively priced against its rivals, and is about the cheapest way into a car of its size. Don’t discount the entry-level 1.0, either. It’s remarkably cheap and great for low-mileage drivers. Resale values, while not as good as those of a Volkswagen Golf Estate (which is almost as big), are still good by class standards, and may even better rivals such as the Kia Cee’d SW. The whole model range delivers extremely competitive fuel economy. The 1.6 TDI 115 diesel engine is the one to go for if you really want maximise this aspect, but for something with a bit more zip that still returns good MPG and has low company car tax, the 1.4 TSI 150 petrol is our top tip. The 2.0 TDI 150 diesel is also good choice. For speed demons the vRS models are great value, although they’re not the best hot hatches around. The off-road Scout variants are quite pricey, but come with lots of kit and frugal diesel engines with four-wheel drive.

Equipment

The Octavia Estate is available in S, SE, SE Technology, SE L and Laurin & Klement (L&K) trims. Hot-hatch models are badged vRS and the off-road biased version is called the Scout. Even the most basic S trim comes with air-conditioning, alloy wheels, an 8.0in touchscreen, Smartlink featuring Apple CarPlay and MirrorLink, Bluetooth, a DAB radio and a USB socket. There are a few key options you can’t add to S, though, which is why it’s worth stepping up to SE grade. So SE is our favourite for private buyers, because it adds rear parking sensors, manual driver and passenger lumbar adjustment, a front centre armrest, a multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, dual-zone climate control and rear electric windows. Despite this, it remains competitively priced. The one to go for if you’re a company car user is SE Technology. It includes an upgraded infotainment system with online connectivity that puts a range of downloadable information at your disposal, plus an in-built sat-nav and wifi hotspot. Front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency city braking are also standard. However, it is offered only with the 1.6 TDI 115 or 2.0 TDI 150 diesel engine, and restricted finance options. SE L trim brings Alcantara and leather seat trim, adaptive cruise control, LED headlights, privacy glass and a drive-mode selection switch. A nice added extra is the handy umbrella kept under the passenger’s seat. Meanwhile Laurin & Klement, as the range-topper, gets everything including automatic lights and wipers, an automatic parking system, an upgraded stereo, a 9.2in touchscreen, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, electrically adjustable front seats with memory, park assist and lane assist. However, while it’s lavishly equipped, it’s also too expensive to recommend. Scout models feature similar equipment levels to the SE L trim, with some additions such as lane assist and cruise control. They also feature off-road styling and an off-road drive mode to enhance the standard four-wheel-drive system’s capabilities. Disappointingly they don’t get the variable boot floor, though. Sporty vRS models have sports suspension, sports seats, LED headlights, 18in alloys, cruise control, lane assist and more aggressive-looking bodywork.

Reliability

The Octavia Estate’s standard, three-year, 60,000-mile manufacturer’s warranty is pretty average these days – Kia offers seven years or 100,000 miles on its equivalent Ceed model. You can pay to extend the Octavia’s warranty up to five years and 100,000 miles, and fixed-cost servicing is available to cover the first three years. Skoda as a manufacturer does do well for reliability though, placing near the top of our most recent reliability survey.

Safety And Security

All Octavia Estates have seven airbags as standard, and rear side airbags are available as an optional extra. Other standard safety features include stability control, hill-hold assist, tyre pressure monitoring, which alerts you to a slow puncture, and a system that automatically brakes the car in the immediate aftermath of a collision to avoid a second impact. SE L and Laurin & Klement models also get Front Assist – a system that senses if you’re about to hit the car in front or a pedestrian and alerts the driver, before braking the car automatically and bringing it to a stop if necessary. It’s available as an option on the rest of the range. Blind spot detection and rear cross traffic assist, which automatically stops you if you’re about to reverse in to something, became available from 2017 models onwards. The Octavia Estate received the full five-star crash test rating from Euro NCAP. An alarm and engine immobiliser are fitted to every model, and security experts Thatcham Research has rated it highly for its resistance to theft and break-in.
