The Skoda Octavia Scout is the Czech company’s rugged alternative to the likes of the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack and Volvo V60 Cross Country. It uses the already-practical Octavia estate as a base, but has a slightly raised ride height, some black plastic body protection around the car and an all-wheel drive system under the skin for some genuine off-road ability.

Equipment

  • All Scouts are well equipped
  • Lots of standard equipment thrown in
  • Plenty of options to add, too

Skoda is a brand well known for offering excellent value for money and the Scout is no exception, as it comes with lots of equipment as standard.

Standard Skoda Octavia Scout equipment

There is a wealth of kit on offer as standard, including an Amundsen 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with sat-nav, Bluetooth and DAB radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, automatic lights and wipers, automatic folding door mirrors, Alcantara seats and ambient interior lighting.

There are plenty of driver assistance systems too, including lane keep assist, a front distance sensor with autonomous emergency braking and off-road features such as hill start assist and hill descent control.

The Drive Select function enables you to choose between Normal, Sport, Individual and Eco driving modes which alters the power steering and throttle response to suit.

A Driver Fatigue Sensor system is also fitted which will notify you when it’s time to take a break by judging your steering inputs.

There is also some unique styling features to the Scout which are included as standard, the highlights include special Scout badging inside and out, body styling to the sills and wheel arches, black side mouldings and different fog lights.

Optional Skoda Octavia Scout equipment

There are plenty of optional extras available in the new Scout which will help to make life easier when out on the road.

Practical additional features you can select include various components to make good use of the boot – such as a variable boot floor, partitions and a reversible load cover. An automatic tailgate is also available, as are a selection of storage solutions to organise the interior.

Various safety and assistance systems such as adaptive cruise control, self-parking, trailer assist and blindspot assistance are also available.

Keyless entry and start is another useful feature which misses out of the standard specification list but is available as an option, and the panoramic sunroof which we particularly like is also available for a premium.

You can also choose to upgrade the standard navigation for the Columbus system which comes with a 9.2-inch multimedia touchscreen rather than the standard 8.0-inch offering.

The new Skoda Octavia Scout is also available in a range of colours including three solid colours and eight metallic shades, while there’s a choice of three alloy wheel options.
