2018 Subaru Levorg STI Sport v Skoda Octavia RS245 comparison review

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...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Ambition review

I purchased the Skoda Octavia in June 2016 (my first new car) after our 2003 Toyota Corolla started having issues. It was emitting intermittent white smoke. I took it to a number of mechanics that had a look at the problem, and they tried to fix it but just couldn't. I was looking at a number of similar small new sedans, and once I saw the Skoda that was it! I fell for it...

2018 Skoda Octavia 110TSI review

The 2018 Skoda Octavia really took me by surprise. There was a voice in my head telling me it ‘wont be as nice’ as a Volkswagen Golf, but having driven the car in and around the city, as well as on a couple of longer road trips, I am happy to say it's comfortable, stylish and super functional. Inside, the Octavia impressed...

2015 Skoda Octavia 103TSI Ambition review

I have been meaning to write this for over a year, and I know you have all been hanging out for this review. Unfortunately, it’s more of an obituary than a review of an ongoing ownership. When I read that Skoda would be returning to Australia in the last quarter of 2007, I had already seen its range of vehicles in British magazines and had read a few articles on the 1Z Octavia...

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...
