Forget all the old jokes about Skoda; with the launch of the Octavia in 1998 those were consigned to history. Using many of the same components as the Audi A4 and the Volkswagen Golf this Czech manufactured car has an excellent build quality and is an excellent budget priced family car.
The Skoda Octavia is available as a hatchback, and estate, a four-wheel drive semi off-roader and a high performance hatchback. Launched in 1998, there was a significant facelift in 2004 with a new engine line-up.
Many consider the Octavia to be one of the best family cars around. It has lots of space, it is very reliable, it is economical to run with good all-round performance, and it handles as well as any other car in its class. It is also a very practical car, particularly in the estate format which, with the rear seats folded down has a huge load capacity.
The Skoda Octavia Scout is a classy 4x4 which combines all the functionality of the estate version with excellent traction. This makes an excellent low prices tow car and has reasonable off-road capabilities.
