Worth Scouting out

Fully prepared and always ready for an adventure - the latest model to join the Octavia range is a true Scout in every sense.

Building on the strengths of its acclaimed predecessors, the second-generation Octavia Scout is a unique all-rounder that combines off-road ability with exemplary on-road refinement and the brand’s famous practicality.

Priced from £25,315, the new Octavia Scout features an advanced, fifth-generation Haldex clutch transmission, along with sector-best levels of interior space and a host of safety and comfort systems.

Yet despite a significant increase in size and specification, the new Octavia is 20 per cent cleaner and more fuel-efficient than the previous model, delivering significant running-cost savings for owners. Two engines and transmissions are available from launch: a 2.0 TDI 150PS with a six-speed manual gearbox and a 2.0 TDI 184PS featuring a six-speed DSG as standard.

The former returns 55.4mpg on the combined cycle and has CO² emissions of 129g/km, while the range-topping model returns 55.4mpg and has CO² emissions of 134g/km.
