Mazda CX-3 v Skoda Fabia wagon : Comparison Review

Many of us at CarAdvice believe the Mazda CX-3 is the pick of the city-sized SUV bunch, and sales in its first six months on the market show it's a favourite among many new car shoppers too. 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...

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...

Skoda Octavia RS all-wheel-drive model ruled out for Australia

There will be no all-wheel-drive Skoda Octavia RS offered in Australia. The Czech brand's new AWD version of its diesel-powered Octavia RS has launched in Europe, but local showrooms won't see the new version, which adds rear propulsion over the standard front-drive model. The AWD model weighs more than the FWD version, but it's quicker from 0-100km/h, too, at a claimed 7...

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...
