In Europe, the car will be available in both sedan and station wagon avatar, both of which boasts of cavernous boot space. If you’re a city dweller and if you can compromise on the boot space for a compact car, a hatchback version of Skoda Octavia would make sense.

For starters, the 2013 Skoda Octavia sits on the MQB platform and is closely related to the VW Golf MK7, a popular hatch in its own right. A steeply raked rear windshield meeting the condensed boot gives it a VisionD like silhouette which would make it stand out from the rest of the herd.
