Skoda Octavia Scout will be available in several engine and transmission choices — a 2.0L TDI with an output of 115 PS, a 1.5L TSI delivering 150 PS – both of which are equipped with a manual 6‑speed transmission – or an e-TEC version of the 1.5L TSI featuring a 7-speed DSG and mild-hybrid technology.
Alternatively, there is also the choice of one of the two range-topping engines – a 2.0L TSI producing 190 PS and a 2.0L TDI delivering 200 PS or the 2.0L TDI offering 150 PS, all of which come with all-wheel drive and a 7-speed DSG as standard.
Scout, now, comes with distinct front and rear bumpers, each with aluminium-look underbody protection, and additional black plastic trims on the wheel arches, side sills and at the bottom of the doors protect the body. The front and rear diffusers, roof rails and window frames come in a silver finish, as do the housings of the electrically adjustable, folding and heated wing mirrors which includes an automatic dimming function.
