ŠKODA will unveil the new Octavia Scout at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, in addition to the exciting VisionC five-door coupé.
Like its predecessor, the new Octavia Scout will have strong-looking mouldings to protect bodywork on all sides, but the new model promises more power and traction, better economy and innovative all-wheel drive technology.
The front features a wide air intake and sharply-embossed fog lights. Door sills and wheel arches have black panelling in addition to the black protective side mouldings. Ground clearance is 33mm
higher compared to the standard Octavia. Inside, the car has a three-spoke, multi-function leather steering wheel and attractive features designed specifically for the Scout.
“The new Octavia Scout is a smart off-roader in every way – a name that has to be earned at ŠKODA,” says Dr Frank Welsch, ŠKODA Member of the Board of Management for Technical Development. “It offers customers a unique package, comprising a striking off-road look, impressive all-wheel characteristics, plenty of space and modern safety, comfort and engine technologies. The new Octavia Scout sets new standards in the crossover-vehicle segment.”
Full details about UK prices and specification will be confirmed from Derek Slack Motors later in the year.
