Skoda Octavia Scout (2013 Typ 1Z Second generation facelift)

5 Pros

  1. Cheaper than all other similar European offerings (such as the Volkswagen Alltrack, Volvo XC70 and Audi Allroad)
  2. Available in an automatic diesel, unlike the Subaru Outback (although the Outback is due to get one soon)
  3. Massive boot
  4. Very good fuel efficiency
  5. 4WD and raised ride height will allow you to do some (very minor) off roading

5 Cons

  1. Based on the Skoda Octavia which only gets a 4 out of 5 star safety rating
  2. Soon to be replaced by an updated version
  3. The engines are quite slow
  4. More expensive than many European SUV’s such as the Skoda Yeti and Volkswagen Tiguan
  5. Bland styling

Concluding personality type: Gumboot: Niche alternative to the popular hiking boot
