It has the low running costs of the standard Octavia iV plug-in hybrid but looks like the racy petrol and diesel vRS models. Sadly, while it may have the looks it doesn't have the performance, so this is an attractive PHEV but not a thrilling one to own.

Ginny Says

“The Octavia vRS is a great all-rounder, especially in estate form. It's like a VW Golf GTI for people with growing families and a good accountant. But the PHEV version feels compromised. ”

Tom Says

“The issue the vRS Phev has is purely that it sits in a slight no-man’s land: the standard Octavia iV is more comfy, and the purely petrol-motivated vRS is better to drive. It’s good, but not game-changing.”

Got questions? We've put together the most frequently-asked topics below. If there's something we haven't answered here or in the review then let us know on our contact page

Is the Skoda Superb iV better than a Volkswagen Passat GTE?

It’s no secret that the Skoda shares many of its major components with the VW Passat, is bigger and cheaper too. It doesn’t feel quite as sharp on the road though and there are signs of cost-cutting visible on parts of the Skoda, such as interior trim.


Is the Skoda Superb iV a good company car?

Yes. The plug-in hybrid Superb iV will mostly appeal to company car drivers as it falls into the 12% Benefit in Kind (BIK) rating, which can potentially save company drivers thousands a year in tax.
