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

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.

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)...

Skoda develops app that listens to your car’s problems

Skoda claims to have trialled a smartphone app capable of diagnosing vehicle faults through audio analysis. This – according to the Volkswagen-owned manufacturer – could potentially lead to cheaper, shorter, and more effective servicing in the future. The system works by recording noises made by the car during operation, and then comparing these with a stored bank of referential sound patterns...

The newest and smallest member of Skoda’s growing SUV family, the Kamiq, has arrived Down Under, but for now it's a single-variant line-up.

Know your Skoda: The model range explained

As the Czech challenger brand under the massive Volkswagen Group umbrella, Skoda has been making strides in recent years to compete with the car industry’s top players. But with less brand recognition than its peers, plus a lot of difficult-to-spell model names (many of them starting with a ‘K’), it’s understandable the Skoda range could feel a little confusing for first-time shoppers...

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)...
