Press release after the jump.
Škoda Auto presents facelifted versions of the Octavia RS and the Octavia Scout. After the modernised Octavia launched late last year, the sports-tuned Octavia RS and the Octavia Scout have now been facelifted as well. Besides numerous design changes, both cars offer new technological solutions including, for example, an air quality sensor for the Climatronic air conditioning system and a new illumination system.
The Scout line has built a steady position in Škoda’s model portfolio. Bigger than the Roomster Scout and the Fabia Scout, the Octavia Scout is the flagship of this model line. The new vehicle has been facelifted to toe the line with the other models of the Octavia portfolio, including a redesigned radiator mask and bold headlamps. Fitted with fog lights with the Corner function, the massive front bumper underlines the vehicle’s off-road appearance. Bold protective body elements are in harmony with a new metallic paint (Rosso Brunello).
With 179 mm of clear height and efficient chassis protection, the car is well geared for off-road driving. The all-wheel drive system includes the fourth-generation Haldex clutch able to transfer as much as 85 % of the torque to a single wheel. Two powerful engines - petrol 1.8 TSI/118 kW (EU 5) and diesel 2.0 TDI PD DPF/103 kW (EU 4) - combined with a six-speed mechanical transmission provide satisfactory performance levels.
The Octavia Scout has been bought by over 22 thousand customers so far.
