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...

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...

Facelift fails: The worst styling updates of 2016

When brands update their cars, sometimes the stylists get it wrong. Facelifted models are supposed to add some flair to an existing model - to bring it up to speed with its competitors, or harden up some edges that may been looking a little limp on the original model. They can be massive, major overhauls, or nips and tucks and tweaks to minor aspects of the car's design...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS facelift revealed ahead of Australian debut: New looks, more power for hot Czech

The updated Skoda Octavia RS was unveiled overnight with a smidge more power for the petrol model. Visually, the Octavia's controversial new headlight arrangement is a little less obvious in the RS, as the sports model has a completely dark grille that blends into the secondary headlamp units...

2015 Skoda Octavia 103 TSI Elegance Review

Purchasing a new car can always be a exciting experience and reminiscing back to when I bought the Skoda I clearly remember it was not the first pick on my list. My ideal car was the Ford Mondeo Titanium Liftback (and I use the word ideal and not dream because no one dreams of owning a Mondeo), I wanted one purely based on the fact it looked like a sedan but it has the boot size of a wagon...

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...
