The Skoda Octavia 1.6 ltrs A/T Ambient Limo, is a fine car at the cost acquired. In its class are the likes of Volkswagin Bora 1.6ltrs.

I have had my Skoda Octavia 1.6 Estate Car since august 04, and I can say that on the whole I'm quite happy with it.

The ride feels good too, but you do get some quite loud road noise at times, which is a shame as the engine is very quiet when stationary.
The car takes turns well, as you feel like it hugs the road, and… Read Full Review
