Despite the saloon-y looks, the Skoda Octavia is in fact a hatchback. According to Top Gear, it’s the ‘leek and potato soup of cars’ - very simple and nice, but a bit boring if you like to make a statement!
Sharing its chassis with the Seat Leon and the VW Golf, the Octavia is a strong contestant in the hatchback market, despite being slightly vanilla with its looks and interiors.
The Octavia Hatchback, however, has won the Tow Car Awards a total of six times in its class! That’s right, six times! The Skoda is stable on the road, even with a load and handles really well up a slope and during hill starts. It’s one of the best tow cars on the market and a true towing superhero in its class!
- Very affordable and good fuel economy.
- Mahoosive practical boot space.
- In the Tow Car Awards, some of the drivers noticed a hot smell after reversing up a slope.
- Nothing stands out in the Octavia - it’s a pretty boring car.
