SKODA OCTAVIA TSI LAURIN & KLEMENT 1.8 ESTATE finished in Black Magic Metallic with Onyx Alcantara and part leather upholstery. This is a beautiful example of the practical, spacious and great to drive Octavia Estate range. This car has the 1.8 16 valve TSI Turbo petrol engine with 160 bhp coupled to a six speed manual gearbox. It can return a creditable 40.9 mpg on the combined cycle, is a group 12 insurance and costs £190 per year to tax. Performance is rapid too, with a top speed of 138 mph and a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds. The Octavia has a very capable (VW Golf based) chassis with accurate handling, well weighted steering and a comfortable ride quality. With its powerful and refined engine, plus a slick changing gearbox – this is an enjoyable yet relaxing car to drive. There is plenty of room in the cabin, with enough space for four adults to travel in comfort (five would be a bit more of a squeeze in the back though!) and a simply massive load area. The rear seats also split/fold to give Transit-rivalling cargo carrying ability! There are plenty of handy family friendly features fitted too, such as – a sliding front centre armrest with integral storage box, map pockets in the back of the front seats, rear centre armrest with integral storage tray, two front cupholders, dash-top storage box, drivers sunglasses holder, centre console storage tray, drivers lower storage box, storage tray under the front passenger seat, storage tray behind the rear seats, cooled glovebox, front door bins with bottle holders, rear door bins, ski flap, underfloor storage; two side storage boxes and a 12V power socket in the boot, rear passenger fresh air vents and storage bin, 12V power socket, front and rear map reading lamps, puddle lamps in the exterior mirrors, front door open warning lights, plus height and lumbar adjustable front seats. The Octavia estate was never crash tested by Euro NCAP, but the mechanically identical hatchback scored a respectable four star result. Safety gear fitted as standard includes driver and passenger airbags (with passenger de-activation switch), side airbags, curtain airbags, ISOFIX child seat mountings on the outer rear seats, ABS brakes and ESP stability and traction control system. All very reassuring to know if you’ve got the family on board! This top of the range Laurin & Klement model has a fantastic spec as well, goodies include – Climatronic dual zone climate control air conditioning, electric windows all round, electric/heated mirrors with power fold, trip computer, power steering, Xenon headlights with power washers and cornering lights, automatic wipers and headlights, auto-dimming rear view mirror, alcantara and part leather upholstery, electrically adjustable drivers seat with memory function, heated front seats, cruise control, rear parking sensors, 17 inch “Cepeus” alloy wheels, optional accessory Parrot Bluetooth kit, remote central locking and its original remote control Skoda “Bolero” touchscreen RDS stereo/in-dash 6CD changer with auxiliary MP3 connector socket and SD card slot.

This Octavia has a brilliant pedigree. It was supplied new by Paragon Skoda of Grimsby and was originally registered to them, presumably as a demonstrator before being acquired by a gentleman from Barnsley in August 2012. It was then retailed by D.M Keith Skoda of Wakefield to a gentleman from Goole back in May 2013 and he has owned the car ever since. There is a full service history with six stamps in the book, the first from a Skoda main dealer and the remainder from the same independent garage. This obviously confirms the sensible mileage of just over 66,000 and also proves that the car has received proper maintenance throughout its life. It is presented in superb condition throughout, drives exactly as it should and looks very smart in its gleaming metallic black paintwork with complementing black interior. It is set off externally by the sporty alloys and front fog lamps, handy roof bars, Mercedes-style door mirror integrated side indicators and chrome front grille surround. The interior is enhanced by the nice to hold leather rimmed steering wheel, gearknob and handbrake grip, luxurious suede and leather upholstery with L&K logos, classy Piano Black inlays on the dashboard, centre console and doors, stainless steel kick plates, plus the chrome effect door handles, instrument dial surrounds and gearknob insert. This vehicle also benefits from its original set of tailored to fit carpet overmats. If you are looking for a comfortable, swift and luxurious estate car that won’t break the bank to own then the Octavia 1.8 TSI L&K will fit the bill perfectly. With this cars rare supplier plus two owner; full service history provenance plus its top of the range spec and beautiful condition – this must be one of the best available in this price bracket. This is a genuine, original and unmolested example, very affordable to buy at only £7,995 and a perfect all-round family vehicle!
