Skoda Octavia Scout: what's it like inside?

Slip behind the wheel of the new Octavia Scout and you will be greeted by an uncluttered and functional design.

The materials used around the cabin are of excellent quality throughout and there is plenty of kit to play with using the familiar VW Group products.

The large colour multimedia touchscreen is easy to control, but you can upgrade to a better system with a bigger screen if you want. It perhaps is not the most exciting place to be yet it’s simple and intuitive design will make life easy when behind the wheel. 

Very adjustable front seats

High levels of adjustment in the seats will help you to find a comfortable driving position and the numerous practical storage options surrounding the driver’s seat make it easy to store and have easy access to all of your personal items. 

The leather and Alcantara faux suede seats are very comfortable too.

  • Supple ride and comfortable seats
  • Very relaxed car to spend time in
  • Great all-rounder

Skoda Octavia Scout: a comfortable place to be, with excellent seats and an impressive ride that isn’t too hard, nor too soft

We’re impressed with the comfort levels of the Skoda Octavia Scout. The interior is very spacious with plenty of leg and headroom available for front and rear passengers to stretch out on longer journeys, the seats are very comfortable too.

Very little road or wind noise intrudes the cabin and engine noise is pretty non-existent too unless you are revving hard to gain speed quickly.

The smooth ride quality and soft suspension in addition to the extra ground clearance means potholes and bumps in the road are no trouble for the Scout.

Skoda Octavia Scout: comfortable ride quality and excellent seats

There are plenty of features around the cabin designed to make life easier and more comfortable while on the road, all falling under Skoda’s ‘Simply Clever’ philosophy.

That means there are cupholders that grip a bottle so you just need one hand to open it, an ice-scraper in the fuel filler flap and a boot light which doubles as an LED torch.

The panoramic sunroof, which is available as an optional extra, brightens up the cabin and is well worth considering when it comes to specifying your car.
