The Octavia Scout 4×4 is instantly recognisable by its strong-featured Scout-specific bumpers. The rugged and functional features continue underneath the vehicle to underbody protection for rough road-use. The Octavia Scout 4×4 also sits 31mm higher than the regular Octavia, offering greater ground clearance for greater versatility.

The interior of the Octavia Scout 4×4 expands on the much-lauded design of the standard Octavia range with its own unique badging and trim details. The Octavia Scout 4×4 interior features include standard highlights such as a 5.8-inch “Bolero” touchscreen radio, leather appointed steering wheel, gear-shifter and hand brake lever and chrome inner door handles.

In the higher specification 135TDI and 132TSI models, both receive Alcantara leather appointed seat upholstery, an eight-inch ‘Columbus’ unit with touch screen functionality and satellite navigation, dual zone air conditioning and automatic tailgate as standard equipment.
