Mladá Boleslav, 21 August 2014 –—- The new ŠKODA Octavia Scout is now rolling off the production line in the Mladá Boleslav plant. The all-rounder wows with its rugged looks and exceptional versatility. Despite being more powerful, fuel consumption and emissions have been reduced by up to 20 per cent. In typical ŠKODA style, the crossover estate offers lots of space, outstanding functionality, state-of-the-art safety and comfort systems along with exceptional value for money. The car will be launched at the end of August.
The new ŠKODA Octavia Scout is a true adventurer for family and leisure, and feels just as at home in the city as it does off-road. Innovative Haldex-clutch-based all-wheel drive, powerful engines, increased ground clearance, larger incline angles, a towing capacity of up to two tonnes and the rough-road package make the latest ŠKODA model one of the most versatile vehicles within its class.
The new ŠKODA Octavia Scout is available exclusively based on the Octavia estate variant. The first vehicles will be on the market as soon as the end of August. The ŠKODA Octavia Scout has been part of ŠKODA’s model range since 2007. Between 2007 and the end of 2013, the manufacturer delivered around 53,600 Octavia Scouts to customers worldwide. This represents approximately 8 per cent of all Octavias sold during that period.
