2016 Skoda Superb Wagon Review

Read the article here. Czech carmaker Skoda is generally regarded at one of Volkswagen’s cut-price brands, but just one glance at the latest Skoda Superb wagon turns that notion on its head. The Superb is a ludicrously large family wagon that also offers an exhaustive list of features and creature comforts, a four-cylinder turbo engine from one of the world’s most celebrated hot hatches, while looking genuinely sporty from any angle...

Luxury sedan comparison part one: Hyundai Genesis v Jaguar XF v Infiniti Q70 v Lexus GS v Skoda Superb

What is luxury? Is it power? Is it control? Is it desirability? All-out plushness? Or just space? Is it a combination of all of those things? And if it is a combination, to what degree does cost and inclusions play a part in determining the luxuriousness of a car? That's what this test aims to find out: we have five sedans here that have some or perhaps all of those aspects covered, though none of them are the usual suspects from Germany...

2016 Skoda Octavia Scout 132 TSI Premium (4x4) Review

Moving from a Tiguan 2.oL diesel, the Scout is a step up in drive and suspension with a very good ergonomic cabin environment. The wagon provides better access for carrying radio control model aircraft with its huge rear space when the rear seats are lowered. I was truly amazed how it handles dirt roads which I often seek out to escape the more traffic intensive main roads...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132 TSI Premium (4x4) Review

Purchased my Scout in October 2015 and have done 15 000 k's up until end of August 2016. Outstanding fuel economy gained on  my trip to Adelaide from Central Coast(14.2 kms/litre) sticking on no more than 5 kms over the designated speed limit when on the open road. Technology is superb and keeps you busy the whole time...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110 TSI Ambition Review

For many Australians, the name Skoda is as foreign as their Czech-based roots. Still, the automobile maker has come a long way from their first quirky vehicles in the late 80’s through to the Superb and upcoming Kodiak. Skoda is still best known for one thing - offering great value for money on practical, cleverly equipped cars...

2014 Skoda Yeti 103 TDI (4x4) Review

I bought this car, as I wanted something different. For the last 20 odd years I have bought Japanese vehicles and have a high regard for them. Since purchasing the Yeti, I have to say that the handling is far better. The car is very comfortable, the front seats fit near perfectly, although the ride is a little firm, it handles great...
