Default Octavia - what are the differences?

As in another post I am looking for a 10-15 L diesel and just sat in the Octavia. Feels really nice but am confused as to what are the variants available and which I should look at. Elegance, L&K and Rider. The L&K is far more expensive and the Skoda website does not mention what extra it has.

Any help would be most appreciated.

The L & K version comes with the following extras;

Alloys
Xenons
Headlamp Washers
Leather upholstery
Sport seats
Parktronic sensors in the rear
Sun roof
Cruise control
Multifunction Steering wheel (I think) maybe it has more features as height and reach control
Multifunction display

Please add some more if I have left any out.
Climate control A/C

The 2.0 is the older naturally aspirated petrol engine that was first launched. It is not longer sold. Resale values on those cars are bad, and you can pick them up in the used car market for a song.

The VRS only has the 1.8 Turbo engine, never the 2.0.

Before the 1.8 l petrol was launched, Skoda sold a 2.0 l petrol engine.

The current 1.8TPi Rider (with the RS engine) has a badge in the rear that says 20V I think. 20 representing the number of valves.
