Octavia Estate awarded What Car? Best Hybrid Estate 2022

"The saying goes that love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage. Well, the same rule applies when it comes to Škoda and cars that are comfortable, sensible and practical. The Škoda Octavia Estate is possibly the best example of this; it’s a car that we’ve always been keen on, and this efficient iV plug-in hybrid model gives you the joy of sailing past filling stations with fair impunity. The Octavia is focused on being a comfortable cruiser, and that’s something it’s incredibly good at. In fact, we’d go as far as to say that the ride is excellent. That focus on comfort continues on the inside, where you’ll find a great driving position, for a relaxing commute, and there’s plenty of head and leg room for four adults on longer trips. Talking of roominess, it’s the boot that really steals the show. In short, it’s huge, especially when you compare it with those of other plug-in hybrids. Škoda has always managed to offer a very complete package with the Octavia Estate, but the iV variant takes that to the next level." - What Car?, 2022
