Skoda Octavia Estate GreenLine - best tax-free cars

Our pick: 1.6 TDI GreenLine IIIPrice: £21,105

With plenty of space on offer, the Skoda Octavia Estate is as practical as any large family car. Go for the 1.6 TDI-powered GreenLine III model, and emissions of 85g/km keep the company bills low.

Offering 610 litres of space with the rear seats in place and a gargantuan 1,740 litres with the rear bench folded, the Octavia Estate is roomy enough to embarrass cars from the class above like the BMW 3 Series Touring and Audi A4 Avant. Yet its Germanic cabin, while rather dour and uninspiring, is solidly put together and feels more expensive and more refined inside than rivals like the Ford focus Estate and Vauxhall Astra Tourer. You can identify the shared switchgear from the VW Golf Estate and SEAT Leon ST, but the Skoda is the one to go for if outright space is your biggest concern - and the low emissions are a huge bonus.
