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.

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...

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...
