This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Skoda Octavia vRS (13-17) review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

Steering adjusts for reach and height, and the two-tone seats look good. However, the dashboard perhaps doesn’t look special enough for the car’s high-performance credentials and is a bit of a let down.

Roomy interior has part-leather trim as standard as well as air conditioning and electric windows and mirrors. Seats offer a good range of adjustment and the cabin feels airy.
