One of the Skoda Octavia Estate’s biggest strengths is practicality, and although the vRS version is designed to be sportier, it doesn't make any compromises on passenger and storage space.

When it comes to passenger room, the Octavia also has space on its side. Occupants in the back enjoy lots of legroom, while the flat rear bench is comfortable for three people, even if they’re tall. There’s plenty of headroom on offer, too, plus the large side windows help create an airy feel. Other highlights include a large glovebox, a huge storage box under the central armrest and deep door bins front and rear.

Boot space

The vRS version of the Octavia Estate has the same enormous 610-litre boot as the standard car. The rear seats can be folded down easily, and doing so expands the total boot capacity to 1,740 litres. 

The boot floor is removable, allowing more delicate objects to be stashed away safely, while the front passenger seat can be folded flat to make space for longer items. Not only is it big, it also features a wide opening and low loading lip.

The load area is packed with useful hooks and cubbies, plus there are bright courtesy lights and a 12V power socket. On the downside, you have to pay £150 for the handy variable boot floor that comes as standard on the less expensive Elegance model.


You can have a tow bar fitted to the car as an optional extra. Both the petrol and diesel models can tow a maximum braked weight of 1,800kg while the four-wheel-drive diesel version can tow up to 2,000kg.
