2017 Skoda Octavia RS230 review

Read the full article here. The 2017 Skoda Octavia RS230 finishes off what is, without doubt, one of the most practical, family-friendly and sporty ranges on the market today. The Octavia RS is the quirky Czech brand's best-selling model. Not just in the Octavia range, but in general. More people know Skoda for the Octavia RS than anything else...

Read the article here. Out here in the forest, you might come across things you might not normally see. Take this for example, the Skoda Octavia Scout. Often overlooked, it might surprise you to know that the Scout has been on sale in Australia since 2008 - this new generation arriving in 2014...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS wagon v Renault Megane GT wagon comparison

Petrolhead parents on a budget are hardly spoilt for choice in today’s showrooms – especially if a hatchback is considered a bit too small and they prefer their driving experience, rather than outward view, to be elevated. In the circa-$40,000 price zone, there are just three members of the sporty compact wagon breed: the Renault Megane GT, Skoda Octavia RS, and Subaru Levorg...

$30k Family car comparison

While the car industry seems intent on reinventing and cross-pollinating shapes, sizes and themes to create a different family vehicle, equally families who buy and use such vehicles can be incredibly diverse in terms of needs and wants...

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...

The 2018 Skoda Octavia RS245 will kick off from $43,390 before on-road costs when it arrives in November, the company has confirmed.

Skoda Octavia RS245 in Australia from November, 2018 VW Polo due first quarter - UPDATE

UPDATE: This article previously suggested the RS245 would be offered in DSG automatic form only. In fact, the company expects to offer both.  The hot new Skoda Octavia RS45 will hit Australia in November, while the now not-so-compact new 2018 Volkswagen Polo will touch down in the first quarter of next year...

The high-riding AWD Skoda Octavia Scout won't be joining the rest of the newly updated Octavia range any time soon, unless enough fans out there stamp their feet.

2017 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

If Aldi ever made a car, the Skoda Octavia would be it. Sitting in its market segment as an outsider, the brand has been slowly working its way into the consciousness of the buying public. Slowly is accurate too. The Mazda 3 outsold Skoda’s entire range by 3000 for the month of June. Happily, due to the ever-improving products, you feel like you’re ahead of the curve somehow...

2014 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

This car offers a great blend of performance and practically. I purchased this car in 2014 and it's done 35,000km. I cross-shopped it against the Renault Megane GT 220 at the time. In my opinion, the Octavia's quality was better, and the ride reached a much better compromise between sport, and comfort...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Style review

We had previously owned a Golf Highline with the R Line package. I really loved the car but our circumstances changed and we needed something with significantly more cabin and boot space. I looked at the Subaru Liberty and Mazda 6, but they didn't quite fit the bill for me. Both are good, solid cars but I was not quite convinced...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI Premium review

I have always wanted to do a review on my car as I have been following online reviews for years in both written and video format. Now that I have 15 minutes free time before my day starts kicking in. I thought I'd give it a go. My car is a 2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI. Honestly speaking, I have not yet seen another identical Scout on the street here in Adelaide...
