Click 'get deal' and there are some details just under the You Tube clip - but not much.

I spoke to Simpson Skoda - Preston who confirmed the mileage allowance and advised they can offer more or less mileage if needed.

RRG also list the offer but lists 5k mileage:
rrg-group.com/sko…rt/

So, could be national.

Granted it isn't a premium product but for a mid sized car seems hard to beat considering 0% finance with little deposit.

You compare an astra to an ocatvia, class wise? eeerrrr

Ok then. Astra 2016 wheelbase = 2,662 mm, width: 1,809 mm, Rapid: 2,602 mm/1,706 mm, Octavia = 2,680 mm/1,814 mm. Rapid is one size smaller than the other 2. Facts.

The Rapid is an Astra equivalent, the Octavia is...size wise...more a competitor for the Mondeo class.

An Octavia is based on the same VAG platform as the Golf. A Mondeo is larger, id think the Skoda Superbe would be equivalent.

Correct - Octavia/Golf = Focus. Superb/Passat = Mondeo

Am I right in thinking this is basically a saloon revision of a polo / Audi a1?

pops1975

Lol, what would you suggest on similar terms? Please share.



Walking

The only time this 1.2 Skoda is RAPID is when the clubs kick out and the driver needs to get as many fares in as possible.

The boostii jokes have now moved on to VW/Audi. Using Skoda at the subject is way out of date.

Im no expert, just happen to have owned a few VAG cars. I'd love to know what it is about car threads that attracts people who seem to know even less than me, but feel a need to express emphatic opinions about cars?

Eh? In terms of size of platform across the models this is correct. Neither emphatic nor expert, but true.

It's not just car threads mate... experts with no knowledge are in all threads and unfortunately those not in the know are then swayed by these maniacs.

It does seem a bit contrary to the average pub bore opinion:
(JD Power 2016 dependability ranking)

1. Skoda
2. Suzuki
3. Kia
4. Vauxhall

Interestingly, BMW, Mercedes and Audi are in the bottom 5 along with Dacia and LR.

But it's not as simple as just platforms as the Octavia is based on a stretched golf platform and I think Skoda meant it to be positioned in the Mondeo segment. However, it's the smallest car in that class but large for the Focus-sized one. Other manufacturers have increased their general sizes and got rid of their largest sized car (remember the Granada and Omega?), but Skoda still have the Superb to compensate at the top end.

I had one too, garish orange complete with bodykit.. Plenty of overheating incidents, but it did handle well. Often used to get waves from 911 drivers in the know! I imagine theirs made it to their destination though X)

A superb has more rear space then an s class Merc and a bigger boot than an e class. Don't base everything on the floor plan. Octavia is Mondeo sized in side

I had a black one - and a blue one a bit later on - did 16000 miles in black one in a year - pretty cheap motoring car was only £250

Couldn't agree more with regards to over-heating incidents, i broke down on the Runcorn bridge (twice) during early morning rush hour causing a large tailback and congestion - really, really sorry Runcorn people

It did handle very well and was awesome for going round roundabouts and corners - just very, very basic inside - lol
