Spent the past week in a 150 PS, 2 litre Skoda Octavia DSG. Thoroughly impressed. Roomy, quick and really quite frugal with the 6 speed auto’box.
But here’s the thing.
Which would you rather have? A 2 litre VW Passat with the same gearbox, or the Skoda? The Skoda sounds quite expensive at £21,390, but the VW is 2300 quid more expensive.
Full appraisal will be in the mag next week once I’ve ruminated a bit more.
