Sophisticated, spacious, and packed with whole host of safety features, it’s no surprise the new ŠKODA Octavia Scout has been judged ‘Best Family Car’ in the What Car? Car of the Year awards for 2015.
The Scout’s interior provides driver and passengers alike with cool comfortable minimalism. Excellent craftsmanship sees tactile finishes fitted together pleasingly. Part leather and Alcantara seats are an option, as is the luxurious-looking black and brown two-tone finish on the dashboard.
With an elevated ride height achieved by increased ground clearance, drivers won’t fail to enjoy the visual and physical sense of dominance on the road. What’s more, the Scout’s bodywork is striking too. With a distinctive and exclusively styled front end, silver skid plates, and bold front fog lights, the ŠKODA Octavia Scout’s rugged yet refined look is complete. Fitted underbody protection, 17-inch ‘Polar Alloys’, and the ‘Rough Road Package’ all come as standard, and ensure the Scout is just as happy off-road as on. Better still, with a boot space which can be increased from an ample 610 litres to a huge 1,740 litres, the Scout has room for all your outdoor gear.
The Scout is excellently equipped for tackling off-road terrain, thanks to its ingeniously engineered Haldex-5 all-wheel drive. This system allows the car to intelligently recognise when the front wheels are struggling and sends extra power to the rear wheels to boost traction.
There are two impressive engine options available, both of which provide efficiency, smooth power delivery, and considerable economy compared to rivals in the class. The larger of the two is a roaring 181bhp 2.0-litre, and comes with a six-speed DSG gearbox. The acceleration this unit offers is significant, with a rapid sprint time of 0-60mpg in under 7.8 seconds.
The Scout comes packed with sophisticated features and technology, from the intelligent traction control and all-wheel drive technology to more obvious gadgetry inside the car’s cabin. An easy-to-navigate touchscreen control panel places all the controls at your fingertips. More thoughtful extras include ‘KESSY’ the keyless entry and start system, as well as electrically heated, adjustable and folding door mirrors which ensure optimum visibility at all times.
The Octavia Scout is provided with an impressive number of safety features, typically for ŠKODA. Nine airbags are fitted as standard, whilst multi-collision brake and automatic braking technologies are installed to prevent collisions.
