ŠKODA OCTAVIA SCOUT: Interior with exclusive visual accents

› Specific decorative strips and ThermoFlux seat covers as standard
› New central airbag provides even higher levels of protection for driver and front passenger
› Virtual Cockpit and digital assistant Laura are standard features

The interior of the OCTAVIA SCOUT has been designed with exclusive decorative strips, ThermoFlux seat covers and chrome-effect trims. A central airbag makes its OCTAVIA SCOUT debut. The Virtual Cockpit and the digital assistant Laura are included as standard features.

“Thanks to its airy interior, the new OCTAVIA SCOUT offers a real feel-good factor. Its modular dashboard arranged on different levels immediately catches the eye. The car’s look is also characterised by numerous SCOUT-typical design details, such as specific decorative trims, striking ThermoFlux seat covers with corresponding logos on the front seats, as well as brown contrasting stitching. The car’s exterior is rugged yet elegant and confirms that this off-road estate from our bestselling range is a true SCOUT.”

Model-specific details in the redesigned interior

The SCOUT variant of the OCTAVIA’s redesigned, ergonomic and more user-friendly interior features exclusive details that provide the model with its own personal touch. These include decorative strips for the dashboard (in an ash-wood effect as standard or with a silver finish as an option), ThermoFlux seat covers and SCOUT logos on the front seats. The upholstery, multi-level modular dashboard and optional heated multifunction leather steering wheel – sporting two spokes and shift paddles on vehicles with DSG – all come with contrasting Tabor Brown stitching. The pedals have an aluminium decor finish, while details on the neatly defined centre console provide further visual accents. Decorative strips on the dashboard and door trims, as well as chrome-effect door handles, together with new and soft materials complete the car’s high-quality impression. An auto-dimming rear-view mirror and textile floor mats provide the finishing touches to the interior.


Virtual Cockpit with SCOUT logo and digital assistant Laura as standard

The Virtual Cockpit, which comes as standard, measures 10.25 inches and displays an animation with a specific SCOUT logo when getting in and out of the car. The infotainment systems are from the new generation of Volkswagen Group’s Modular Infotainment Matrix and are permanently online thanks to a built-in eSIM. The free-standing 10-inch central screen can be operated via the digital assistant Laura, who also understands entire sentences.



Central airbag and KESSY as standard, tri-zone Climatronic available as an option

Vehicles sold in the EU now come with a new central airbag fitted between the two front seats, making them even safer. This airbag reduces the impact between the driver and front passenger, particularly in the event of a side-on collision. The redesigned SCOUT’s interior also contains the additional new features from the current-generation OCTAVIA. This includes an electromechanical parking brake with an Auto-Hold function, for example. The new LED ambient lighting indirectly illuminates the front doors, dashboard and footwells in up to 30 different colours. The dashboard and front doors can be illuminated in a different colour to the footwell. Ten colours come as standard; an additional 20 colours can be purchased via the Functions-on-Demand service. The optional Climatronic tri-zone air conditioning is making its OCTAVIA SCOUT debut. Further optional extras include a Phone Box with inductive charging for a smartphone, two USB-C ports in the rear and another USB-C port on the overhead console above the rear-view mirror. Acoustic front side windows which reduce driving noise in the interior are available as an option. And finally, any one of the SCOUT’s four doors can be opened first, by using the keyless vehicle entry system KESSY – this comes as standard.
