The Skoda Octavia needs little introduction as a sensible used family car; Britain’s roads are full of the hard-working hatchback and estate, most visibly in 4x4 Scout form as paramedic and Police service vehicles. Challenging the Vauxhall Insignia, Ford Mondeo and Volkswagen Passat market in a slightly smaller package, it’s been a genuine success for the once-budget marque. So many professional drivers rely on the Octavia, in fact, that you can look at a used Skoda Octavia with some confidence. From its launch in 1998 there have been three generations, each improving refinement, build and specification. A wide range of engines,from economical diesels to high performance, stealthy petrol models like the vRS, is offered; choose to to buy a used Skoda Octavia, and you’ll appreciate the fast search functions to narrow down the thousands of Skoda Octavias for sale on Parkers. First generation models from 1998 to 2004 are solid, robust and simple, though the 180hp vRS showed a sportier side; from 2004 to 2013 the Octavia range went upmarket with higher grade trim, plus 4x4 and raised-suspension Scout models; the vRS offered a choice of 200hp petrol or 170hp diesel models. The final generation added more technology, and up to 245hp in the latest nearly-new vRS models.
