Sometimes, all you need is a little bit of space. Space to breathe, space to think, space to be yourself. Well, if space is high on your agenda, here’s the good news: the new 2014 Skoda Octavia Estate has got it in abundance. We’re not talking about a little bit of extra room here; we’re talking about class leading space that will make your entire journey a whole lot more comfortable – for both you and your passengers alike.
What you get: more leg room, clever storage solutions, class leading luggage space and a wheel base that’s 108mm longer than the previous generation of Skoda. In a nutshell, the extra wheelbase means that passenger space has been maximised even further, ensuring that all passengers in the back have more knee room than in any other car in the same segment. Good news for whoever you’re carrying – whether children and in-laws on a weekend away, or work colleagues on the way to a meeting.
But just because the new 2014 Skoda Octavia Estate is big on room, doesn’t mean it’s not big on vroom too! This is a car that does everything in a big way – and that includes performance. In the vRS version of the estate, you can enjoy the 2.0 TSI 220PS engine, offering 4 cylinders of direct fuel injection and 350 max torque. What does that translate to on the road? 0-62 mph in only 6.8 seconds – not bad for a vehicle that, from first glance, would appear to be more about square foot than foot down.
Just about every model in the 2014 Octavia range is available in the Estate body style, except the very basic 1.4 litre model. The Octavia Estate costs around £1200 more than the equivalent hatchback model, and the extra money buys you the extra practicality of a huge boot with 1665 litres of space if you fold down the rear seats. Other than the additional boot space and some roof rails, the spec is pretty much identical to the hatch model.
