Carbuyer Rating

4.7 out of 5

Practicality & boot space Rating

5.0 out of 5

The Octavia Estate is in a league of its own for interior space, competing with cars from the class above for passenger room and often beating them for boot space.

Skoda Octavia Estate interior space & storage

The Estate is 4.69m in length, just behind the 4.7m Audi A4 Avant, which is not only in the next class up but also considerably more expensive. This means there's ample legroom in the back seats, and the Octavia's lengthened roofline helps ensure plentiful headroom. It's even possible for three tall adults to sit in the back, which is rare in this class.

Boot space

Boot space has increased to 640 litres - a 30-litre jump on its predecessor - and there's a split-level floor that's useful for hiding valuables and stopping them moving around.
