Skoda has presented the first official photos of the new 2014 Skoda Octavia Scout. Compared to the standard version, the ride height was increased by 33 mm and towing capacities were increased by 25 %. The great debut will take place in Geneva at this year’s auto show. Skoda Octavia Scout, the Crossover based on Octavia Combi unleashed a new generation.
The new version of the Octavia will debut at the Geneva Motor Show, scheduled in early March, and boasts with a drive system with Haldex coupling (fifth generation) and increased ground clearance, 33 millimeters compared to standard and other improvements. As usual, Scout model differs from the standard version with black plastic trim applied to bumpers, wings and side skirts. In addition, we have a set of silver inserts and additional protection for fog and let’s also notice 17-inch alloy wheels with a different design included as a standard.
Skoda Octavia Scout 2014
It is based on Octavia Combi and just like the previous Scout, is a wagon with off-road elements that will rival the Volkswagen Passat Alltrack. Not many official details are available but four-wheel drive should be optional.
If you are more of a fan of luxury, 2014 Skoda Scout prepares something for you with the Laurin & Klement version. Again, we do not know anything about the top version of the Scout but logic imposes xenon headlights, LED tail lights, large wheels and as much luxury can fit into the cabin: leather upholstery on the seats and the dashboard, wooden ornaments and perhaps slightly different instrumentation. Skoda launched a Laurin & Klement version of the Yeti in January this year so you should expect some similarities.
The new Octavia Scout is able to tow 25% more than its predecessor, Max trailer is two tons. Skoda Octavia Scout features two new diesel engines or a gasoline engine, all three being on average 20% more economical than their predecessors. Inside, the model has a three-spoke multifunction steering wheel, designed specifically for this version and leather upholstery, everything as standard. Price of the new 2014 Skoda Octavia Scout was not released.
