Deal of the week: Skoda Octavia
Save £4,660 on an Octavia SE Connect.
The Octavia is already a great-value family hatchback, but now Skoda is offering the SE Connect model for just £13,990 - that's a massive saving of £4,660.
Despite the rock-bottom price, the care gets plenty of equipment, including 16-inch alloys, rear parking sensors and Bluetooth.
Skoda’s Octavia is a rival for the Ford Focus, Vauxhall Astra and the car upon which it’s based, the VW Golf. It’s larger and cheaper than its rivals, and buyers have the choice of hatchback, Estate or four-wheel drive Scout, which has beefed-up bodywork and offers limited-off road ability. All models feature generously sized and well-built interiors, and huge boots. Entry-level cars are a little short on standard equipment, but there's a huge choice of petrol and diesel engines. Build quality is first rate, while a reputation for reliability means strong resale values.
