After its short break of exporting to Australia, Skoda has been back here since 2007. Currently the Octavia, Fabia, Yeti and Superb are available. The Skoda Octavia is the highest selling model as a great family car.

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...

Skoda Rapid v Kia Cerato : Comparison review

European cars are expensive, Korean cars are cheap. Well, that’s how the generalisation used to go at least. Yet here we have the new Skoda Rapid that, at $18,990, is the most affordable European small car on the market, and is actually $1000 cheaper than the South Korean-made Kia Cerato that falls just $10 beneath the crucial $20K barrier...

Small SUV Comparison : Nissan Qashqai v Holden Trax v Skoda Yeti v Peugeot 2008 v Kia Sportage

Call our original small SUV comparison test the elimination round. Earlier this year when we tested this new breed of fully loaded, sub-$30,000 sub-compact ‘softroaders’, the competition was fresh but clearly green (read the full comparison here). Six months on, and the class has shifted up several gears...

2012 Skoda Superb 103 TDI Elegance Review

Purchased a zero kilometre demo 4x4 103 TDI Superb Elegance Combi (Wagon) in April 2012, the only extra was an extended 5 year warranty that the dealer threw in as the car had been registered and the original warranty started in December. Spent a fair bit of time wandering back and forth between the adjacent Audi and Skoda dealer and could not pick any difference between panel gaps in the Skoda and the Audi...

2015 Skoda Yeti Active 7 Tsi (4x2) Review

Having driven more performance based VW Golf GTi's over the last 10 years, I was a little hesitant to drop from my recent Golf GTi Pirelli with 169KW of power to the more sedate 77KW Skoda Yeti but I am truly astounded at how well the new Skoda Yeti 1.2Ltr Turbo petrol engine performs. It certainly won't move like the GTi but I seem to have all the comforts and familiarity of the VW Golf in my new Skoda...

2013 Skoda Yeti 103 TDI Review

After 18 months owning my Yeti, it has proved to be a fantastic choice as a car that is a pleasure to drive, totally reliable and very frugal on fuel. The build quality is clearly first rate and it has not exhibited any reliability issues or missed a beat in any way. The DSG transmission is very easy to use and living in a fairly hilly area, I use the manual selection quite a bit...

2015 Skoda Yeti Outdoor 103 TDI Review

After thinking that I may have overdone the research I recently took delivery of this little wonder and realised that the numerous test drives of all the competitors simply revealed the Yeti to be a perfect choice. We are a couple with grown up kids, live in the country, make numerous trips into the hills and to the big smoke and appreciate quality when we experience it...
