First drive: Skoda Octavia GreenLine II

Martyn Collins

The Octavia is Skoda's best-selling model in the UK and has also received the Czech firm's GreenLine II tweaks.

Highlights of the greenest Octavia ever include the 105PS 1.6-litre TDi engine with stop/start technology that's capable of returning 74.3 mpg for the hatch and 67.3 mpg for the estate.
