Since its market introduction 12 months ago, the Octavia Scout has become a successful model in the Skoda range. Now, with the introduction of the new Octavia range, a revised Scout model has joined the fold.

Revisions are subtle but include the new family face of the brand – complete with different grille and larger headlamps (available with optional Xenon lights) – while still retaining the cross-country mobility so highly desired of the Scout.

Ground clearance of 180mm and underbody protection mean off-road suitability has also been maintained.  The four-wheel drive is controlled by the fourth generation Haldex clutch.

Powered by a 103kW, 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel engine the Octavia Scout is fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox.

Cargo space available is 580 litres with the seats up (to window height) or 1620 litres with seats down.

Pricing for the New Octavia Scout remains unchanged at $39,990*.
