Most bang for the buck of any brand


A little noisy on the inside with winter tires on.

General Comments:

Very quick engine, acceleration 0-60 is phenomenal.

It puts a smile on your face every time you push the gas pedal.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I know for sure the Octavia is an accomplished car with lots of good/excellent reports said about it.

I'm contemplating buying an Octavia Estate, probably in 103kW-118kW (14bhp-160bhp) 1.4TSi guise or the heavier-engined 118kW (160bhp) 1.8TSI model.

Any news/info/figures on your real world fuel consumption? Thanks
