Good Points
Great car to look at, excellent dealership help, pure performance on road as well as off road ability. Computer drives car in eaith 2 or 4 wheel drive according to conditions wich gives excellent all round control over run by the ESP (Electronic Stability Program)

Bad Points
cars got everything so just a few more little toys to play with along with everything else.

General Comments
The change from 2.0MPI to the Skoda Octavia 1.8 20v Turbo 4x4 Elegance estate 150bhp engine is the best part of the car the acceleration and power of the car is phenomanal. There is an unoticable switch between two and four wheel drive which is controlled by the Skoda Hadlex clutch system wich gives a very smooth ride.



As it is available in the elegance range only it means it comes with all the top spec items which means no accesaries are needed as everything is givern as standard - the only thing, like another review, i would suggest is taking the xenon headlights.



So if you want to feel good on the road as well as off dont be put off by past talk about skoda. Take it for a test drive before you speek - you may be quite taken aback!

Clivelawence's Response to James Brown's Review

Just bought a secondhand Octavia 1.8 T 4X4, utterly dissappointed ! no way, what a superb car. I have not taken delivery yet (1st Oct) but did take the car for a long test drive. I was totally shocked at the level of comfort, refinement, power, ride, extras etc etc, I did not expect this from a Skoda, but after all it is a VW with a different badge. Totally agree with your review, more comments when I get mine.
<br>Can't think what other toys you might need, it's got everything.
