Skoda Octavia Scout and SEAT Leon X-perience head-to-head
The new Scout follows Skoda’s tradition for 4WD estates and is part of the brand’s expanding 4x4 range. But how does it fare against the Leon? SKODA has branched out into the off-roader market recently with its new Kodiaq SUV, while a smaller Karoq model will join the range soon to further the brand’s 4x4 line-up.
Off-road ability isn’t a new concept for Skoda, as it has a strong history with rugged estate cars offering four-wheel drive. The new Octavia Scout is the latest model in a long line to fill this niche.
However, the recipe is similar to the SEAT it’s going up against here, so can the Skoda’s extra practical touches edge it ahead?
