is it? It’s the facelifted-for-2009 Octavia the slightly high-rise, more off-road variant of Skoda’s honest, practical and affordable Think Audi A4 Allroad, but the badge kudos and minus grand or so off the asking price.

As well as cosmetic changes and out, the latest Scout the new, fourth generation clutch system also on the Octavia 4×4 estate. mated to an unchanged 2.0-litre engine and a smooth six-speed gearbox with sensibly ratios.

What’s it like? comfortable and versatile, among things. The familiar 138bhp diesel unit is a respectable and returns decent economy, 50-plus mpg easily achieved on a motorway cruise. On top of that, alloys and a tyre profile at home on a farm track a race track mean a relaxing ride, too.

Externally, the Scout’s modified raises both the ride and ground clearance over the Octavia 4×4, while but understated bodywork add-ons both width and overall by a few millimetres. All this adds up to a smattering of off-road ability; you want to enter the Dakar in it, but towing a horsebox or caravan a rutted field would be within its remit. Inside, you get a of restrained, contemporary cabin

Trim fit and finish punches above the Scout’s asking with excellent seats, a comprehensive dash, useful computer functions and a satisfyingly steering wheel, albeit in fingertip controls for the otherwise stereo. The front seat even gets a chunky on the dashboard to hang on to when the gets really rough; a peppering of neat ‘Scout’ completes the interior effect.

Should I buy one? It’s worth considering. Estate car is common to all the Octavia estates, but the very real, if limited, potential marks it out as an option for who need something capable of when the going gets than a muddy country

As a rugged, rural towing car is otherwise barely compromised in on-road use, the Octavia is an impressive, endearing and great piece of kit.
