Octavia awarded What Car? Best Practicality Family Car 2023

"As a car that dwarfs most of its competitors for interior and boot space, the Škoda Octavia remains the model to beat for practicality. It offers four six-footers loads of room for lounging in comfort, but it’s in the middle rear seat that you really notice the difference: a fifth occupant gets more breathing space than in nearly all rivals. There’s plenty of storage for everyone’s drinks bottles and phones inside, while the boot will swallow all their luggage with ease. When you need even more load space, it’s easy to fold down the back seats (which split 60/40) by pulling levers in the boot." - What Car?, 2023
