The company Skoda is ready to present a new member of his large family, off-road wagon version – model Scout.The new Skoda is based on a model Combi 4×4 which was shown to the audience half of last year.
Octavia Scout has a useful protective plastic attachments on the lower part of the bumper, along the sills and the wheel arches and moldings at the bottom of the door, and there are decorative roof rails.
The difference between Scout and wagon versions of the Octavia is more distance from the ground to 33 mm has Octavia Scout.To gives it an advantage to be very serviceable SUVs.It is also equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels that are specially designed.
Like the Octavia Combi 4×4, power is sent to the wheel with improved transmission system, which includes the latest generation Haldex clutch 5.
The improved system provides “intelligent” distribution of power as between the axles, and between each wheel individually. Under normal driving conditions, most of the power is passed on to the front wheels, and when it is needed, power is gradually distributed on the rear axle.
Skoda will offer two diesels and one petrol engine.We still do not have the engine specifications, but it is assumed that it will not differ much from what we see in models Combe 4×4.In this case, it is the 1.6 TDI diesel engine developing 105 hp, 2.0-liter TDI engines with 150 hp and 1.8 TSI petrol unit with 180 hp.
