2018 Skoda Octavia RS245 review

I've been driving performance Golfs for a long time – from early VR6-powered stuff to later GTI models with the ever-tuneable EA888 2.0T. Having a young family, it was time to move into something bigger and more practical. Being a VW person, the Mk7.5 Golf R wagon was high on that list, however I was disappointed that the rear seats didn’t offer much space and it is pretty much a Golf with a bigger boot space...

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...

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...

2013 Skoda Octavia Scout 103 TDI Premium review

When the odo’ clicked over 320,000km and the airbag light wouldn’t go out on the stopgap car that was my old Honda CR-V, I figured it was time to treat myself to something a little newer and a lot nicer. The trouble is, I am extremely picky when it comes to cars, and my criteria went something like this: European, all-wheel drive, wagon, manual, economical and definitely not an SUV...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

My wife and I have recently purchased an MY17 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI wagon from Thomson Skoda in Parramatta. I’m not new to the Volkswagen 'family' – I have previously owned a 2012 Volkswagen Polo GTI (6R), and I replaced that with a 2014 Volkswagen Golf GTI (MK7). When we got engaged, I agreed to sell the Golf in order to save money for the wedding...

2017 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

If Aldi ever made a car, the Skoda Octavia would be it. Sitting in its market segment as an outsider, the brand has been slowly working its way into the consciousness of the buying public. Slowly is accurate too. The Mazda 3 outsold Skoda’s entire range by 3000 for the month of June. Happily, due to the ever-improving products, you feel like you’re ahead of the curve somehow...

2014 Skoda Octavia RS 162TSI review

This car offers a great blend of performance and practically. I purchased this car in 2014 and it's done 35,000km. I cross-shopped it against the Renault Megane GT 220 at the time. In my opinion, the Octavia's quality was better, and the ride reached a much better compromise between sport, and comfort...

2016 Skoda Octavia 110TSI Style review

We had previously owned a Golf Highline with the R Line package. I really loved the car but our circumstances changed and we needed something with significantly more cabin and boot space. I looked at the Subaru Liberty and Mazda 6, but they didn't quite fit the bill for me. Both are good, solid cars but I was not quite convinced...

2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI Premium review

I have always wanted to do a review on my car as I have been following online reviews for years in both written and video format. Now that I have 15 minutes free time before my day starts kicking in. I thought I'd give it a go. My car is a 2015 Skoda Octavia Scout 132TSI. Honestly speaking, I have not yet seen another identical Scout on the street here in Adelaide...

2015 Skoda Octavia 103 TSI Ambition Review

When I was searching for a new car in 2015, a number of the small car regularly reared their heads as potential options. The Mazda 3 and Volkswagen Golf were the leading contenders with their above-average cabins. During my search however I happened upon the Skoda Octavia...

2015 Skoda Octavia 103 TSI Elegance Review

Purchasing a new car can always be a exciting experience and reminiscing back to when I bought the Skoda I clearly remember it was not the first pick on my list. My ideal car was the Ford Mondeo Titanium Liftback (and I use the word ideal and not dream because no one dreams of owning a Mondeo), I wanted one purely based on the fact it looked like a sedan but it has the boot size of a wagon...
