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.

It’s no secret the popularity of urban crossovers has exploded in Australia in recent times, with the likes of the Mazda CX-3, Honda HR-V and Nissan Qashqai becoming the default choice for buyers looking for a little more size for only a little bit of money...

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...

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...

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...
