2008 Skoda Octavia Scout 4×4

Skoda has bolstered its Australian Octavia line-up with the introduction of the new Skoda Octavia Scout 4X4. This represents Škoda’s first entry into the compact SUV segment, combining the refinement of the Octavia with the rugged capability of a 4×4. The Scout 4×4 is no urban jungle pretender, just as capable in mud, sand or snow thanks to its state-of-the-art four-wheel-drive system and ground clearance of 180mm.

2008 Skoda Octavia Scout 4×4-12008 Skoda Octavia Scout 4×4-2This is largely thanks to its second-generation Haldex clutch mechanism, which allows power to be transferred between the front and rear wheels as and when it is required. This new version is able to react faster than the first-generation Haldex system, providing increased traction on loose surfaces.

Under the bonnet lies a Volkswagen-sourced 2.0-litre TDI engine with diesel particulate filter which produces 103kW and 320Nm, linked to a six-speed manual transmission.

With direct injection, turbocharging and electronic injection control, fuel consumption is impressive with a combined figure of just 6.6-litres per 100km.

The Octavia Scout 4×4 features a generous list of standard equipment including 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, dual zone air con, ESP, 6 airbags, rear acoustic parking sensors, cruise control, twin chrome exhausts and unique ‘Scout’ touches throughout the cabin.

With 580-litres of storage capacity– which jumps to 1,620 with the rear seats folded down – and a payload capacity of 660kg, the new Octavia Scout 4×4 is the true all-rounder – with prices starting from $39,990.
