Standard Octavia iterations are fitted with eye-catching silver roof rails, which allow for extra load-bearing opportunities – not that you should have much problem getting most things into the boot. However, if you do find yourself struggling, outsized items such as bikes and surfboards can be transported overhead with ease.
The car rides on 17-inch alloys as standard. Not only are these wheels at least as durable as their steel counterparts, they’re much lighter – a quality that helps deliver enhanced efficiency. And did we mention they look smart too?
Alloy wheels aren’t the Octavia’s only sporty accoutrement – the vehicle also features a three-spoke flat-bottomed steering wheel, which is leather-wrapped and fitted with audio controls. Not only does this look rather smart, it provides an assured grip, and allows the driver to focus on the road ahead while simultaneously adjusting music volume levels, for instance.
