The usual range of ‘Simply Clever’ features is present, like a reversible boot floor, door-pocket bin and built-in ice scraper behind the fuel filler flap. There are a few new touches, too, like a remote fold function for the rear headrests and a built in coat rack.

As with the hatchback, there’s a host of technologies to improve safety, including City Emergency Braking and fatigue detection. For those who demand extra stability and reassurance in slippery conditions, there’s to be a 4x4 version.

February 2014

Skoda Octavia Scout revealed

The robust all-rounder sports a distinctive off-road look, innovative all-wheel drive, the best driving performance - even on rough roads - and high versatility on and off the road.

The Octavia Scout is based on the Octavia Estate and is characterised by a powerful, Scout-specific appearance. Both the front and rear feature powerful, black bumpers with silver-coloured off-road attachments. The front features a wide air intake and sharply-embossed fog lights. The door sills and wheel arches are also in black panelling, in addition to the black protective side mouldings.

The ground clearance has increased by 33mm compared to the standard Octavia. 17-inch alloy wheels are fitted as series standard. In the interior there is a 3-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel and attractive features, designed especially for the Scout.

State-of-the-art all-wheel drive technology, based on the Haldex-5 coupling, and new technological features make the new model the best Octavia Scout ever. The traction has increased by 25% to up to two tonnes. In addition, the start-up performance and climbing power of the all-rounder has significantly improved. Thanks to the larger approach/departure angles, the Czech car masters even steeper, more challenging terrain. It comes with a choice of two diesel engines and one petrol. The powertrains are 20 per cent more economical, compared to the vehicle’s predecessor.

June 2014

Skoda Octavia TdF launched

Designed with the keen cyclist in mind, it comes with ‘le Tour de France’ badging, waterproof seat covers and bike wheel bags – all of which feature the Tour de France logo. In addition, customers will receive a centenary edition of the Rouleur Tour de France book and a competition entry to win a VIP Tour de France experience.

Only 198 examples are available to customers (a mix of either Red, White or Blue – the national colours of both the UK and France). That’s the exact number of cyclists entered into this year's race. Priced at £24,290, the Octavia TdF is based on the Estate SE 2.0-litre TDI 150PS 4x4 model. It has an Amundsen satellite navigation system with DAB digital radio, Keyless Entry and Start System, floor mats, roof bars and a roof-mounted bike carrier.

August 2016

New Octavia SE Sport and SE Technology models added

Priced from £19,990 OTR, the Octavia SE Sport is available with two engine options: 1.4 TSI 150PS and 1.6 TDI 110PS, with the option of a DSG gearbox on both.

As part of the standard specification, SE Sport models get 17-inch Denom alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED Daytime running lights with automatic activation and LED rear lights. Inside, SE Sport models feature sport seats, a Super Sport Multi-Function Steering Wheel and an automatic dimming rear view mirror, while standard technology includes Amundsen satellite navigation system with Wi-Fi and cruise control.

Despite its raft of additional equipment offered on the SE Sport, it costs just £950 more than the standard SE. That means buyers choosing the SE Sport over the SE benefit from over £3,150 of customer value over the cost of individual options.

Joining the SE Sport in the expanded Octavia line-up is a new SE Technology model. It is available with four TDI diesel options with power outputs ranging from 110PS to 150PS. The 1.6 TDI 110PS engine can be specified with a DSG automatic, customers can also choose the frugal GreenLine III engine that offers exceptional economy of up to 80.7mpg on the combined cycle and emissions of 90g/km.

Like the SE Sport model, the SE Technology comes with a specification list that’s bursting at the seams with equipment. Among the technology features included over the standard SE are an Amundsen satellite navigation system with Wi-Fi, a four-spoke Multifunction steering wheel, adaptive cruise control (standard cruise control on GreenLine III models) and front and rear parking sensors. The equipment list also features a Chrome pack and double-sided boot floor covering along with light and rain sensors.

The SE Technology replaces the current SE Business model and enjoys a specification that delivers significant value to company car drivers. Despite its increased specification – with options that would normally cost £1,830 on the standard SE – the SE Technology commands a premium of £275 over the outgoing model. This gives a customer saving of £1,155.

January 2017

SE L models are also equipped with sunset glass from the B-pillar back, front grille finished in gloss black and a colour maxi-dot trip computer as standard.

KESSY, Park assist and Lane assist are also included as standard.

Scout models once again offer the perfect combination of comfort and rugged 4x4 ability and feature Alcantara and leather Scout upholstery, Amundsen eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, full LED headlamps Scout body styling details and off-road mode. Scout models also come equipped with a rough road package that delivers increased protection for the underside the vehicle along with Lane assist, heated front seats and heated multifunctional steering wheel.

Also available is the 1.4 TSI 150PS with manual and DSG gearbox. From July 2017, an all-new 1.5 litre engine featuring active cylinder technology (ACT) will join the line-up and will be available with a manual gearbox.

A substantially updated version of the existing 1.4 TSI unit, it develops 150PS and 250Nm of torque. It's available on SE, SE Technology and SE L models.

It's equipped with a six-speed manual transmission as standard, customers preferring the convenience of an automatic can opt for a seven-speed DSG that replaces the six-speed unit offered with the 1.4 TSI engine.

March 2019
