Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
German influences with a Czech twist. Basically an A4 Allroad for a LOT less money. Recognises that modern Skoda are a world away from Skodas of old.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like it. Even more impressed when you start 'selling' it too them i.e. VRS engine, 4 wheel drive, good fuel economy, decent ground clearance.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Possibly - depends on the deal and what happens with this one.

What are you likely to buy next?
Too soon to tell.

Buying experience

3 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£24,000

When did you buy the car?
June 2015

Did you get a good deal and why?
Bought a 3 month ex-demo with just under 5,000 miles on. Lots of extra kit fitted (winter pack, bi-xenon AFS lights, upgraded alloys). Decent saving off brand new list price.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Wanted a reliable 4x4 estate with good ground clearance and decent power.

What was the dealer like?
Ok - friendly enough, but car was not valeted before collection (as promised), no movement on final price what-so-ever, rubbish price offered for part-ex, very poor finance offering. A free tank of fuel would have been appreciated.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Good - DSG box isn't perfect but makes for a relaxing drive. Plenty of power from 184ps engine (taken from VRS I believe!) delivered through 4 wheels.

What's it like to park?
Easy - made even easier by rear sensors.

Heated seats & front screen, bi-xenon AFS lights bend round corner.
