Revisions are subtle but include the new family face of the brand - complete with different grille and larger headlamps (available with optional Xenon lights) - while still retaining the cross-country mobility so highly desired of the Scout.
Ground clearance of 180mm and underbody protection mean off-road suitability has also been maintained. The four-wheel drive is controlled by the fourth generation Haldex clutch.
Powered by a 103kW, 2.0-litre, turbo-diesel engine the Octavia Scout is fitted with a six-speed manual gearbox.
Inside dual-zone climate control with an air quality sensor that automatically recirculates the interior air when fumes are detected outside the cabin is now added to the extensive feature line-up.
Cargo space available is 580 litres with the seats up (to window height) or 1620 litres with seats down.
Pricing for the New Octavia Scout remains unchanged at $39,990*.
