Skoda's faux-4x4 will start at just £12,505 when it arrives in June
7 February 2007

We're fast running out of Scout-related puns for Skoda's faux-4x4 Roomster, the Scout, but that doesn't mean we can't tell you more about it.

Skoda's new body-cladded front-drive MPV promises to do its duty from just £12,505. That'll buy you the 1.4-litre petrol model, which comes with 16-inch alloys, roof rails, tinted glass, a leather-trimmed wheel and gearknob, and ESP.

There's also a 1.6-litre petrol version for £12,855, and a 1.4-litre diesel for £13,450. Leader of the pack, or Akela, if you will, is the 1.9-litre 103bhp TDI, which is a still reasonable £14,050.

Skoda's also announced a new 1.2-litre petrol Roomster, which costs just £9920. Sadly they haven't called it the Cub.

The 1.2 is available from the end of February, while you can expect to see a jamboree of Scouts at your local Skoda dealer in June.

Our Verdict

Skoda Roomster

The Skoda Roomster shows that practical needn’t mean boring, and makes for an interesting alternative to the traditional estate
