Wow secondhand price for new car - HOT

Gotta love the MPG figure

Yeah, it doesnt look right above (55.4), it says in the specs Combined 36.2,
I always minus five for the real world so I make that 31.2 average - not great

Good price for a new car of this size. Skoda are decent quality these days too. Personally wouldn't buy a car this size as I don't have a family of four.

Skodas are fab! Why pay for the VW badge when you can get a Skoda for a much lower price. I've had a Fabia and currently have an Octavia and they are so good to drive. There is really no need for any anti-Skoda snobbery lol believe me

Agreed. Much the same as buying a Passat.

Cold for the bogus mpg figures. No way a motor with 166 co2 can do that. Nice car tho and good price.

I am guessing that this stupid comment is your attempt at a wind up? (_;)

This is reminiscent of the dim-witted Onkyo comment.

Skoda has moved on.

I had a Superb for 5 years and it was the best, most reliable car I have had. I've now been compelled to take a 5 series as a company vehicle and it's not a patch on the Superb.

Get your facts right.

I'd go even lower, a 105hp 1.6 with a modest torque output will be working hard to pull that lump of pig-iron around.

It's a good price, but who buys saloons anymore? Any deals on estates?

False MPG claims as usual but good price for a new car.

Better off going for a TDI.

Skoda is a poor mans VW.
Get a Passat or if you can afford it, like me, get an Audi

Skodas are decent cars - owned by VW now I think.
I'd be happy with one. Can't afford new though. Just about to buy a 2007 Fiat. That'll do me.

New Skoda's are far more reliable than new VW's.

If they only had same price for diesel model

Nothing wrong with Skodas these days. they're very goo company & family cars these days since taken over by VW. interiors a bit more basic but its the same engine & reliability.

FAIL!

Good to see Audi drivers are as arrogant on forums as they are on the road.......

We've owned the Octavia vRS estate for the past three years and it's been brilliant.

The price for this one is amazing, to be quite honest. We're looking at paying the same for a Hyundai ix20 now, so that's pretty good value, I would say.

And @ A13, you do realise that saying Fanboy now means you have lost whatever argument this was? It's the new version of Godwin's Law...

Looking a at broadspeed.com the cheapest price for an Octavia diesel is £15772, at that price the average car user doing 10k miles a year would take almost 6 years to recoup the cost (I'm assuming 30mpg for the petrol, 50mpg for the diesel). That's excluding more expensive maintenance costs for the diesel.

Well thanks for living up to every stereotype of an arrogant Audi t**t!

Also Skodas use the VAG platform so they should be mechanically no less reliable than a VW or SEAT.

^ No problem guys.

Also, the 1.6 in my old golf was very underpowered - it will be awful in this.
Petrol engines need to be 2.0l+ to be effective.

The new Golf GTi is less than "2.0l+" , is that not "effective" with 207HP? Talking out your proverbial..

good price but that's because nobody wants 1.6 petrols or bigish saloons anymore,
diesels or smaller more economic petrols are the popular choice now usually in hatchback form.

still a good price though if you plan on keeping it a while and don't do big mileage.
