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 RS 162TSI review

About six months ago, I made the decision that it was time to update my ride. I set out to find a car that ticked as many boxes as physically possible, which is a harder task than you might think...

2016 Skoda Superb 140TDI review

I ordered my Mark 3 Superb 140TDI 140kW on its week of launch back in July 2015, and got it by the end of September 2015 from a local dealer in Bucharest, Romania. This is my third Skoda and the most expensive one. The list price was EUR31,000,  but I managed to pay just EUR28,000 due to discounts, fidelity et cetera...

2015 Skoda Octavia RS162 TSI review

In 2015, my wife and I had two very good cars, a 2013 Renault Megane GT-Line diesel and a 2014 Volkswagen Golf 110TDI R-Line wagon. Both were great cars, but we'd just had our first child and needed to do two things. Firstly, reduce from two cars to one, as I had just got a company car. Secondly, we needed a tad more room...

2012 Skoda Yeti 77TSI (4x2) review

When it came time to replace the then girlfriend's ageing small hatchback, the requirements were a smallish SUV, newish, safe and somewhat future-proofed should there be any additions to the family. It was just the two of us at the time. I reluctantly obliged on the SUV front and purchased the 2012 Skoda Yeti 77TSI seven-speed DSG as a demo from the dealer with about 1600km on the clock...
