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...

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...

Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon v Skoda Octavia RS : Comparison review

Traditional family wagons are almost a niche product these days, given how few are sold compared with SUV models of varied sizes. The Holden Commodore SV6 Sportwagon and Skoda Octavia RS are here for the SUV-rejectors, however. Each is priced close to $40,000 and aim to rival high-riding faux-offroaders for practicality then trounce them for driving enjoyment...

Medium car comparison : Toyota Camry v Mazda 6 v Nissan Altima v Skoda Octavia v Holden Malibu v Hyundai i40

Medium is the new large. By 2017 when the large car segment will have been thrown into further disarray with the loss of the Ford Falcon and question marks surrounding imported replacements for the Holden Commodore and Toyota Aurion, it really has to be. The mass exodus from large six-cylinder family sedans that has happened in recent years, however, hasn’t been the expected boon for medium cars...

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...

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...
