This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Drive The Deal are currently offering large discounts on the Skoda Octavia hatchback and estate ranges. I've highlighted this 1.6 TDi S as this seems to be the biggest percentage discount relative to list price.

The deal applies to stock cars only that are bought and registered before the end of September. Energy Blue (as per the picture) is the free colour, any other colour costs extra.

The cars are brand new with full manufacturers warranty (3 years or 60,000 miles). You will need to sign up to the manufacturers PCP finance offer to obtain the deal price, but it should be possible to withdraw from the finance within the first 2 weeks either with cash or a cheaper loan and retain the finance incentive of £2,500. You can pay off the finance at any time, but doing so before 14 days means you will avoid additional interest charges. Signing up to the finance also means you are eligible for 2 years of servicing at the reduced price of £159.00.

Standard specification includes;-
  • 16 inch alloy wheels
  • Air conditioning
  • 8 inch touchscreen radio with DAB
  • Android Auto and Apple CarPlay
  • Remote central locking
  • Driver and passenger front and side airbags
  • Front LED daytime running lights
  • LED rear lights
  • An ice scraper hidden behind the fuel filler cap!!

Not the last word in style or sophistication by any means, but A LOT of brand new family car for less than the price of a new Ford Fiesta.

2 months ago I started my 2 year lease of an Octavia, a 1.0 Tsi SE Tech. I'm 52 and have never had a new car and may never have a new one to drive again. I've never driven an Audi or a BMW, being a family man I've had a Cavalier, Mondeo's, Galaxy and a CR-V.

Without doubt, the Octavia is the nicest, most pleasant car and most fun car to drive. I never have been a speed demon but I was worried about a 1ltr petrol but I shouldn't have been concerned. The car pulls very well and after 1,500 miles I'm now showing an avg of 51mpg. On the 45 mile M1 runs to see my girlfriend, she regularly shows over 60mpg. I would imagine the diesel version is even better.

I love the Infotainment system, the drive, the comfort, the size and especially the price. I'm paying £88 a month to drive this car which is an utter bargain. The only thing I don't like about the lease is I can't drive it as much as I want being limited to 8k - which I will break and then pay the extra for.

This deal, paying under £14k for a lot of car is IMHO, an absolute bargain. When my lease comes to an end I will be looking to either get another or buy a car like this outright, I am extremely impressed by the Octavia. But what do i know, I've never been a car snob, I've only driven what I a) could afford and b) suited my family needs.
The mugs who buy an Audi, still haven't worked out that Skoda's are better.

Anyone that goes into a dealership and doesn't ask for a discount shouldn't be allowed out on their own.

How can a car be reduced by so much? What's the catch?

Well, this price is about right. Why do people pay over inflated costs for anything they're buying?

No catch. The new shape is out very soon so expect a lot of these deals. They’re great cars.

To be fair, I don't think that's exclusive to Audi drivers

p.s. even though they are the worst of the lot!

A base (ish) model, fill market get it up the sales list (adds publicity), adds good stock to second hand market in next 2-3 years, people see the new cars on road.

This is a common trick.p and if you want new a great time to buy;)

Not really any of that - just as others have said, replacement model due.
Okay, makes sense to reduce the price of old stock before the new model comes out.

You can generally only get big discounts like this at the end of a car's lifecycle - for the next 5 years or so people will be paying more, but for the new model.
Do the Japanese cars ever have discounts this big or is it just the western cars?

Been some big discounts on some Nissan models recently, but sadly they're not very Japanese anymore.
Personally would not buy diesel. Wife has 1.5 petrol estate and is a great car. I can't drive at three moment due to ill health but should be back on the road soon. Nissan leaf for me.
Very good car
That warranty looks very mean these days. That aside, and the merits of new Vs used, brand arguments and finance debates etc, that is a very good price for a decent sized, frugal family car.

Different use cases there. You are unlikely to buy a leaf if you’re doing the mileage needed to justify a diesel.

The quoted prices include a £2,500 finance deposit contribution which is conditional upon you taking out PCP finance at 5.9% APR Representative arranged by the dealer. If you do not wish to take out it, you will need to add £2,500 to the price quoted.
That's the catch

Or cancel soon after by paying it off - that's your legal right.

I did not go for this one as I thought that the split front lamps are hideous. The new one looks awesome in the hatchback version.

Buy the car using their finance then pay off a week later avoiding the interest charges. As it states in the original post. 2 people I know have done this one with VW and the other with Skoda.

Nice car, but the S Octavia is a bit lacking in kit, SE is the one to get, same with the Fabia, but with that you have to go even higher and get the SE-L to get a half decent spec. Some people at work have the SE Fabia and the amount of stuff you got with the SE-L over the top was a fair amount for very little money.
