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...

2019.5 Skoda Octavia Sport revealed

Skoda's global division has added a new option package to the Octavia range overseas in similar to the new Sportline variant revealed earlier this week, dubbed the 'Dynamic+ package'. Where the Sportline is positioned as a standalone variant available with specific powertrains, the Dynamic+ pack is an add on for "most engine versions", and is a pretty clear indication of what's coming for the mildly-refreshed Octavia Sport in Australia...

Skoda Octavia Sportline revealed

Skoda has revealed the Octavia Sportline for the European market, bringing a more athletic look and feel without any extra performance. Much like the Sportline-badged Karoq, Kodiaq, and Superb, the Octavia picks up a number of styling and trim appointments, including a subtle body kit with gloss black accents, 18-inch 'Vega' alloy wheels, and full LED lighting front and rear...

2015 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Ambition Plus review

Three years and 85,000km into the life of this car, I finally think I'm ready to owner-review it. What is it? A 2015 MY16 Skoda Octavia Ambition Plus six-speed manual with a couple of options. I should start that it took me over 12 months to research and eventually purchase this particular model. I'd like to think that this isn't uncommon for Skoda owners...

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...
