ŠKODA Comparisons

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)...

2019 Kia Rio GT-Line v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

They both have three-cylinder engines, and they're both sportier than the wider range. There are plenty of similarities between the Fabia and Rio – how do they stack up side-by-side?

2019 Hyundai i30 Fastback N v Skoda Octavia RS Sedan comparison

Hot hatches that are not hatches? Well, not quite – let's call a spade a spade here. The Hyundai i30 Fastback N and Skoda Octavia RS Sedan are, despite their official names, both hatchbacks. More obviously, though, both comfortably fit the definition of ‘hot’ more readily...

2019 Hyundai Tucson v Skoda Karoq comparison

Both the Skoda Karoq 110TSI and Hyundai Tucson Highlander are built around the same ‘utility vehicle’ philosophy, but despite differences in their makeup, they arrive at very similar conclusions. We’ve put together the highest spec of each available in Australia to see if Europe’s challenger brand, Skoda, has what it takes to topple the might of Hyundai...

2018 Hyundai Santa Fe v Kia Sorento v Mazda CX-8 v Peugeot 5008 v Skoda Kodiaq v Volkswagen Tiguan Allspace

People-movers are pretty passé, which explains the continual success of seven-seat crossover SUVs like the group tested here. We’ve assembled what we consider to be six of the best, with the added bonus that all are either new models or at least recently upgraded...

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...

$30k Family car comparison

While the car industry seems intent on reinventing and cross-pollinating shapes, sizes and themes to create a different family vehicle, equally families who buy and use such vehicles can be incredibly diverse in terms of needs and wants...

Mazda 2 Genki v Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo comparison

Light car sales may be down an alarming 16 per cent this year, but they’re still big business. Here we pitch two of the better contenders against each other, one a new kid on the block and the other a well-established leader of the pack. They are the newly launched Skoda Fabia Monte Carlo — a niche player known by relatively few — and the well-loved Mazda 2 Genki, consistently one of the top sellers in this class...
