Bray People - - MOTORING EXTRA -

SKODA is press­ing ahead with its model cam­paign with the launch of the new SKODA Oc­tavia Scout which will be launched in deal­er­ships in Au­gust with prices start­ing from un­der €30,000 for the 2.0TDI 150bhp 4X4.

The new ver­sion of the Oc­tavia Scout has a new and im­proved of­froad look and in­cludes the all-wheel drive tech­nol­ogy, with trac­tion, climb­ing and start-up per­for­mance all sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved.

The new SKODA Oc­tavia Scout is based on the Oc­tavia Combi and is char­ac­ter­ized by a pow­er­ful, Scout-spe­cific ap­pear­ance. Both the front and rear fea­ture pow­er­ful, black bumpers with sil­ver-coloured of­froad at­tach­ments. The front fea­tures a wide air in­take and sharplyem­bossed fog lights. The door sills and wheel arches are also in black pan­elling, in ad­di­tion to the black pro­tec­tive side mould­ings. The ground clear­ance has in­creased by 33 mil­lime­tres com­pared to the stan­dard Oc­tavia. 17-inch al­loy wheels are fit­ted as se­ries stan­dard. In the in­te­rior there is a 3-spoke multi-func­tion leather steer­ing wheel and at­trac­tive fea­tures, de­signed es­pe­cially for the Scout.

State-of-the-art all-wheel drive tech­nol­ogy, based on the Haldex-5 cou­pling, and new tech­no­log­i­cal fea­tures make the new model the best Oc­tavia Scout ever. The trac­tion has in­creased by 25% to up to two tonnes. In ad­di­tion, the start-up per­for­mance and climb­ing power of the all-rounder has sig­nif­i­cantly im­proved. Thanks to the larger ap­proach/de­par­ture an­gles, the Czech car masters even steeper, more chal­leng­ing ter­rain.

With the launch of the new Oc­tavia Scout, SKODA Ire­land now boast one of the largest 4X4 model of­fer­ings in Ire­land along with the Yeti 4X4, Oc­tavia 4x4, Su­perb 4X4 and now this new Scout model to com­plete the line-up
