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 Kodiaq RS on the way, but sub-Octavia RS models won't happen

The Skoda Kodiaq RS, a hot version of Skoda's largest car to date, is on the way, although it's not clear when it will make its debut.

2017 Skoda Superb Sportline: New flagship here in February

The Skoda Superb range will be bolstered by a sporty new flagship next month, with the stylish Sportline trim confirmed for the Australian market from February.

2012 Skoda Superb 191 FSI V6 Elegance review

I have never appreciated a car more than this after 50 years of 4WDs, sedans, wagons – the lot. Four years on and the name says it all. The Suberb is an excellent touring car which this country-based owner needs. Our needs were for a powerful, reliable wagon with possible 4WD for improved road holding in variable weather...

2015 Skoda Octavia 103 TSI Elegance Review

Purchasing a new car can always be a exciting experience and reminiscing back to when I bought the Skoda I clearly remember it was not the first pick on my list. My ideal car was the Ford Mondeo Titanium Liftback (and I use the word ideal and not dream because no one dreams of owning a Mondeo), I wanted one purely based on the fact it looked like a sedan but it has the boot size of a wagon...

2010 Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 TDI review

Had our white Skoda Octavia Scout for six years. Why would you not buy a diesel? Great performance from the 2.0 litre TD. I have averaged 87km/h over 420km to average 4.7L/100km. That's hard to beat in anyone's book. This is a six-speed manual with plenty of overtaking capabilities, more than we expected from a 2.0-litre motor...

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...
