Ahead of 2014 Geneva Motor Show, Skoda unveiled the 2014 Octavia Scout, a rugged version of the popular Octavia. The 2014 Skoda Octavia Scout is based on the Octavia Combi and comes with new design features such as front and rear bumpers with silver-coloured off-road attachments, a wide air intake, door sills and wheel arches in black panelling as well black protective side mouldings.
Moreover, the ground clearance has a ground clearance that was increased by 33 millimetres comparing it with the standard Octavia. Furthermore, the Octavia Scout features 17-inch alloy wheels as standard. Inside, there is a 3-spoke multi-function leather steering wheel and attractive features, designed especially for the Scout.
Skoda promises a choice of two diesel engines and one petrol engine, and says that powertrains are 20% more fuel-efficient, compared with the car’s predecessor. The 2014 Octavia Scout also comes with all-wheel drive technology, based on the Haldex-5 coupling.
