Skoda Octavia vRS

A bit like the MG ZS 180 in more ways than one, here’s another car that won’t be this cheap for much longer, especially if you can get your hands on a cherished and well-maintained example. The vRS (the v, incidentally, was added later after Ford lodged a copyright infringement against the RS name, and simply represents the shape of the accent above the S on the badge) was Skoda’s game changer. It had already addressed the age-old Skoda jokes by introducing, in the Octavia, a car that had decent build quality. The vRS proved Skoda could make one that was a peach to drive, too. And it was a big success. Indeed, it was only because they sold in such volume that they’re cheap today. Find a good one for around £1200, and keep it.
