2021 Skoda Kamiq 85TSI review

The Kamiq is another impressive model from the Czech brand that should be at the pointy end of a small-SUV buyer's shopping list.

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.

Our favourite Light SUV versus our favourite Small SUV… But is the Ford Puma or Skoda Kamiq is the best mainstream compact SUV overall?

2021 Honda CR-V VTi LX AWD v Skoda Karoq 140TSI Sportline

On paper, these two mid-spec, all-wheel drive, medium SUVs – one European, one Japanese – are similar. On the road, it’s a different story.

Being a SUV rejectionist for a number of reasons, I convinced myself that a manual Honda Accord Euro Luxury was swift and engaging enough to be a long-term proposition...

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...

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...
