After a short break from exporting to Australia, Skoda returned to our shores in 2007. The local line-up is made up of the Octavia, Fabia, Yeti, Superb and Rapid Spaceback. The Skoda Octavia is the brand's highest selling model in Australia.

2017 Skoda Superb Sportline 206TSI review

For just a grand more than the regular version, the 2017 Skoda Superb Sportline 206TSI adds flair to a proven family-friendly offering. It is, dare we say it, superb.

Mazda 2 Genki v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

Light car sales may be down an alarming 16 per cent this year, but they’re still big business. Here we pitch two of the better contenders against each other, one a new kid on the block and the other a well-established leader of the pack. They are the newly launched Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo — a niche player known by relatively few — and the well-loved Mazda 2 Genki, consistently one of the top sellers in this class...

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...

Skoda Octavia RS v Subaru Levorg 2.0GT Comparison

An internal email recently did the rounds asking the entire CarAdvice editorial team to discuss daily-drivers we’d love, but which aren’t produced. The answers to this straw poll revealed a surprising penchant for hotted-up wagons that combine loading space, cool design and spunky performance...

Skoda Karoq teasers drop ahead of May 18 unveiling

2017 Skoda Superb 206TSI review

Close the door. Foot on the brake. Press the button where the ignition key usually goes. Welcome to Skoda. In this case a Superb wagon with 206TSI engine and AWD. And a huge sunroof. And self steering, stopping, and parking. And 10-colour interior lighting (its a MY17 build). And space, acres of space. And umbrellas, two. And I’ll stop quoting features now...

2012 Skoda Superb 103TDI Ambition review

It's a minefield when the time comes to purchase a new car. Plenty of brands and models that generally meet requirements, but not quite. Then comes Skoda. There's a backstory to this purchase. We returned from three years in the UK to an old and none-too-reliable Renault 21. It goes down as the worst car I've owned. An eight-year old Citroen Xantia replaced it...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Style review

We had previously owned a Golf Highline with the R Line package. I really loved the car but our circumstances changed and we needed something with significantly more cabin and boot space. I looked at the Subaru Liberty and Mazda 6, but they didn't quite fit the bill for me. Both are good, solid cars but I was not quite convinced...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI Premium review

I have always wanted to do a review on my car as I have been following online reviews for years in both written and video format. Now that I have 15 minutes free time before my day starts kicking in. I thought I'd give it a go. My car is a 2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI. Honestly speaking, I have not yet seen another identical Scout on the street here in Adelaide...
