Skoda Octavia Scout 135TDI v Subaru Outback 2.0D Premium : Comparison Review

The Skoda Octavia Scout arrived in March aiming to steal a slice of the all-terrain, all-wheel-drive premium wagon pie from Subaru Outback. A niche pie that the Outback has and continues to own in Australia, as demonstrated by recent record-breaking sales - despite the less-than-threatening opposition presented by rivals such as, well, Skoda’s own Superb 4x4 Outdoor...

Volkswagen reportedly developed a number of different emissions testing defeat devices over the course of seven years, hinting that the conspiracy to hoodwink regulators might have been more than a "couple of software engineers". Multiple anonymous sources both within the carmaker and close to on-going investigations have told Reuters that Volkswagen needed to update or rewrite its software to accommodate different versions of the affected turbo-diesel family...

'Dieselgate' movie rights snapped up by Leonardo DiCaprio - report

We all knew it was coming, but few would have seen it coming about quite so quickly: the film rights to the so-called ‘dieselgate’ scandal have reportedly been snapped up by Hollywood.

2013 Skoda Octavia 110 TDI Elegance Review

I own two Skodas One from 2011 and the new one from 2013 the old one having the 103 Tdi and the new one with the 110 tdi Out of the two the earlier 103 tdi performance is far superior to the new one , despite the new car loosing weight and with auto start stop it is still not as efficient as the earlier version. The handling of the earlier Octavia is also far superior...

2010 Skoda Superb 2.0 TDI Elegance Review

I have travelled over 100,000kms in my 2010 125 Diesel Superb. To the uninitiated I simply describe it as an Audi A6 in disguise at a fraction of the cost. It has travelled in most Australian States and is a brilliant cruiser on the Nullarbor run. Fuel economy never falters, varying between 4.9 and 5.6 at 100km with airconditioning running...

2015 Skoda Octavia Review

The Skoda Octavia wagon is a compromise car. A car for people who want more than a compact hatch, but not the excess of a medium SUV. It's for people who want space without giving up features, and efficiency without giving up practicality. Octavias start at $23,490 drive away...

2014 Skoda Octavia Review

Most car fanatics like super cars, sporty coupes, brutal V8 sedans, well I like them all but I tend to salivate the most over.... wagons. My passion for performance wagons started thanks very much to Audi and their bonkers RS6 Avant models. The ability to carry the kids and half of Woolworths while at the same time scaring Porsches was just what the doctor ordered...
