2017 Skoda Octavia RS230 review

The best Skoda, the Octavia RS, just got a little bit better. Is it the best option for the money, though?

2016 Skoda Octavia Scout Review : 132 TSI Premium

The Skoda Octavia Scout 4x4 is an often overlooked player in the crossover wagon segment. Does it have enough value and capability to earn its merit badge?

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 4x4 Review

Australia’s affordable, rough-and-tumble family wagon market has for more than a decade belonged to the Subaru Outback, but the new Skoda Octavia Scout 4x4 is making a serious play for its own chunk of the action. The second-generation, Octavia wagon-based Scout has grown 10cm in both overall length and wheelbase to measure 4...

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...

2016 Skoda Octavia Scout Review

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...

Honda Civic VTi-S v Hyundai Elantra Active v Skoda Octavia Ambition comparison

Demand for small sedans has been a little stagnant of late, with people increasingly drawn to hatchbacks and crossover SUVs. Nevertheless, the battle for sales supremacy in this traditional part of the market is intensely fought, and there is no lack of quality options...

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...

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...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132 TSI Premium (4x4) Review

Purchased my Scout in October 2015 and have done 15 000 k's up until end of August 2016. Outstanding fuel economy gained on  my trip to Adelaide from Central Coast(14.2 kms/litre) sticking on no more than 5 kms over the designated speed limit when on the open road. Technology is superb and keeps you busy the whole time...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110 TSI Ambition Review

For many Australians, the name Skoda is as foreign as their Czech-based roots. Still, the automobile maker has come a long way from their first quirky vehicles in the late 80’s through to the Superb and upcoming Kodiak. Skoda is still best known for one thing - offering great value for money on practical, cleverly equipped cars...
