Prac­ti­cal petrol­heads searching for a fast and prac­ti­cal run­about could con­sider this Czech con­tender. The Octavia RS245 is armed with a tur­bocharged 2-litre 4-cylin­der that churns out 241hp and a stout 370Nm from just 1600rpm. Paired to a 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox, it pro­pels the car from zero to 100km/h in 6.6 sec­onds. With its fast­back bodystyle, the Octavia RS245 can func­tion as a rapid load-hauler, too. It of­fers a boot ca­pac­ity of 590 litres with the rear seats up, and a com­modi­ous 1580 litres when they’re folded. RI­VAL: HYUNDAI i30 N FAST­BACK
