Wagons… We’re constantly reminding readers about them here at CarAdvice. Don’t just sleepwalk into a dealer and buy an SUV like everyone else, when a wagon is more than likely the solution you need – it’s a message you’ll read and hear from us often...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS wagon v Renault Megane GT wagon comparison

Petrolhead parents on a budget are hardly spoilt for choice in today’s showrooms – especially if a hatchback is considered a bit too small and they prefer their driving experience, rather than outward view, to be elevated. In the circa-$40,000 price zone, there are just three members of the sporty compact wagon breed: the Renault Megane GT, Skoda Octavia RS, and Subaru Levorg...

Skoda Kodiaq v Mazda CX-9 comparison

For many family buyers, a conventional people-mover like the Kia Carnival or Honda Odyssey is the ultimate manifestation of apathy. A sure path to social death. The end of dreams and youth, alike. Whether this is a furphy or not, seven-seat crossover SUVs such as the popular Mazda CX-9 and just-launched Skoda Kodiaq are widely seen as a more respectable path (usually tarmac-coated) to take...

2018 Skoda Kodiaq 140TDI (4x4) review

Competition When my partner and I decided we needed something new, we wanted something decent in size. Being just over 6ft tall, I was getting tired of our little Yaris, and prior to that my BMW 125i. After much deliberation and several test drives, our shortlist was the Mazda CX-9, VW Tiguan and the Kodiaq...

2012 Skoda Superb 118TSI Elegance review

Owner reviews of the Skoda Superb tended to be glowing and I liked the used price point. I was checking out a Ford 2016 FG XR6 and spotted the spotless used Superb wagon on the lot...

2018 Skoda Octavia RS245 review

I've been driving performance Golfs for a long time – from early VR6-powered stuff to later GTI models with the ever-tuneable EA888 2.0T. Having a young family, it was time to move into something bigger and more practical. Being a VW person, the Mk7.5 Golf R wagon was high on that list, however I was disappointed that the rear seats didn’t offer much space and it is pretty much a Golf with a bigger boot space...
