Skoda has grown into a competitive automotive company throughout Europe since its development in the Czech Republic in 1895. Since 2000, it has been a part of the Volkswagen Group. After a short break from exporting to Australia, Skoda returned to our shores in 2007. The local line-up is made up of the Octavia, Fabia, Yeti, Superb and Rapid. The Skoda Octavia is the brand's highest selling model in Australia.

The Top Seven Things about the Skoda Kodiaq RS

Let’s check out the Top Seven Things that might put the Czech seven-seater at the top of your SUV shopping list.  ...

2019 Skoda Octavia Sport v Honda Civic RS: small sedan comparison

The small-sedan segment does sometimes get overlooked as a fertile patch for mixing practical, enjoyable and affordable motoring for a diverse cross-section of buyers, even modestly sized families. Here we have the 2019 Honda Civic RS v Skoda Octavia Sport sedan comparison, which is our pick of these mid-priced medium-grade sporty sedans...

2019 Skoda Karoq 110TSI: Welcoming our new long-termer

The larger Kodiaq is a tough act to follow, but we've got the Skoda Karoq for a few months in the CarAdvice office, to see if great things can still come in smaller packages.

2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS review: Australian first drive

The 2020 Skoda Kodiaq RS is the fastest seven-seat SUV around the Nürburgring, which isn't really that relevant for the family commute. Its blend of practicality and value for money certainly is, though; and Trent Nikolic goes for a drive on the track to show you why.

Family SUV review: 2020 Skoda Karoq v Jeep Compass comparison

Among the never-ending stream of new and updated mid-sized SUVs, two of the latest face off.

2020 Peugeot 508 GT v Skoda Superb 162TSI comparison

This pair offers European style and sensibility by the bootload, but very different designs make for curious competitors.

2019 Honda Civic RS v Skoda Octavia Sport sedan comparison

The small-sedan segment does sometimes get overlooked as a fertile patch for mixing practical, enjoyable and affordable motoring for a diverse cross-section of buyers, even modestly sized families. Around $22K gets you into the buck-banging basement with Honda’s Civic and Skoda’s Octavia, and both nameplates top out in the $52K and $46K mark, respectively, for high-performance driver’s versions (albeit a hatchback for the Civic)...

The unlikely cars reversing the COVID-19 sales slide – the follow-up

In June, we highlighted four model lines that were continuing to perform despite the market downturn. Since that piece went live, the market has ebbed and flowed. Whilst some segments were stimulated by tax incentives, others were held back by stock shortages, production issues, and delayed new product launches. As of the end of year, it has begun to show signs of recovery...

2021 Skoda Scala and Kamiq 110TSI delayed – UPDATE: Stop-sale lifted, vehicles now on sale

UPDATE, 13 January 2021: Skoda Australia has at last lifted the stop-sale on the Scala hatch and Kamiq Monte Carlo and Limited Edition 110TSI variants, as the software issue causing the vehicles to be delayed has been resolved...

2021 Skoda new cars

Skoda almost halved the downturn felt by the market as a whole – dropping 8.8 per cent year-to-date against a strong 2019. In real terms and in a challenging climate, the Volkwagen sister brand is going relatively well in Australia. 2020 saw the injection of quality new models – updated Kodiaq arrived, as did new Kamiq – which came a little too late to make a big impact on sales figures...

The all-new models of 2020 – and how they're selling so far

The young up-starts, the fresh faces, the newcomers – whatever you want to call them, we've had a raft of new model arrivals in Australia over the course of 2020...

2018 Skoda Superb 206TSI Sportline review

Where do I start? After buying a Skoda Kodiaq Sportline, I’ve gained a lot of respect for the Skoda brand. So naturally, when it was time to buy the next car, Skoda was the first place I looked. I went straight to the top of the range 206TSI Sportline, as the looks are enough for me to fall in love and make me spend that little bit more...

2019 Skoda Kodiaq 132 TSI (4x4) review

I had purchased my MY19 Skoda Kodiaq about three months ago, and because it has been three months, I feel I have enough experience to talk about the car. If you are looking for 7-seater SUV, the Kodiaq must be part of your shortlist. Back when I was searching for a car, the Kia Sorento, Mitsubushi Outlander, Mazda CX-9 and Skoda Kodiaq were on my basket...

2017 Skoda Fabia 66TSI review

Our manual cars, a green 2012 Mazda 2 Neo and red 2016 Toyota 86 GTS, were written off last year due to an extreme weather event. The Kia Carnival was the sole survivor. I spent some weeks browsing the used car market with no specific replacement car in mind. It just needed to be a manual so that our kids could learn in it to get manual licence...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110 TSI Ambition review

I purchased a one year old 2016 Skoda Octavia Ambition 110TSi manual with 11,000km on the clock for a ridiculous $18,999 driveaway. It is a good car but not a great car. The good is the technology, the ride quality and the economy, while the not-so-good is the slight shudder from the clutch on take off (at lights and especially hill starts)...
