Skoda Octavia vRS boot space, practicality and safety

2001 - 2005 (change model)
Practicality rating: 4.5 out of 54.5

Written by Simon Harris Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019

Fairly safe when tested in the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) with a four-star rating out of five. Driver and passenger airbags, ABS and child-seat preparation were all standard features. However, side airbags, passenger airbag deactivation switch and potentially life-saving electronic stability programme were all on the options list.

Probably the most practical car you can buy with this level of performance, particularly the estate. More than 500 litres of luggage space up to window height with the rear seats in place with much more room seats folded.
