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?
