For the family man who has used to streetrace at night when he was in his 20s, we bring you the coolest and fastest estate car you can buy without the wife killing you.
It's the third generation Octavia Combi RS, currently undergoing testing in the Czech republic, but soon to enter production.

The hot estate is built on a completely different platform than the outgoing model, which means it should be a lot better in terms of… well, everything. It's also clearly got a lot more character, as dual exhaust pipes are clearly visible at the back, even on this prototype.

Just like with the Octavia II RS, there will be both petrol and diesel options. The 2.0 TFSI will have 210 horsepower and will probably push the car from 0 to 100 km/h in 7 seconds. We say that because the already available Octavia III 1.8 TFSI DSG does the standard sprint in 7.4 seconds.

As for the diesel model. Hopefully, it will have 180 PS, 10 more than the old mode. Both engines should be available with either an six-speed manual or seven-speed DSG. Both should offer 8 l/100km or under city fuel consumption, which is why the Combi RS might be the car our street racer dad needs.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
