Following the trend for engine downsizing Skoda has introduced it's tiny 1.0 TSI engine from the Fabia into the larger Octavia model. This sounds like madness, but as there's a general move away from diesel it makes sense - the 3 cylinder 1.0 turbocharged engine produces a healthy 115 bhp which is more than a non-turbo 1.6 litre engine puts out, (and as much as the current 1.6 litre diesel) and they were a regular sight in the older Octavia model. In real life use the engine is smooth and refined, great for use around town and only struggles if you push it to its max on the motorway, or try quick overtaking. For those doing shorter distances and town driving this engine would be ideal.
