The video was uploaded by km77.com on their YouTube channel. They have done similar tests on many other vehicles in the past. They don’t say anything about the version they run the test on. Moose test is basically done on a car to find out if the car is controlling or staying under control in a situation where it has to change lanes suddenly. This is a situation that drivers can face when driving at high speed. In this test, they try to find out at what speed it can safely perform such fast lane changes.
In this test, the driver drives the Octavia through a lane where he has to change lanes without hitting any of the cones. On the first lap, the driver is traveling at a speed of 77 km/h and is completely unaware of how the car will react. He drives onto the track while maintaining a speed of 77 km/h and when he changes lanes, the car understeers him and prevents him from changing lanes. It hits several cones placed on the side.
After seeing this reaction, the driver reduces the speed. They reduced the speed to 74 km/h and only at this speed could they come out smoothly without hitting any of the cones. Even at a speed of 75 km/h, the Skoda Octavia hit cones. At higher speeds, the rear slid out and the car understeered as well. From the outside it felt like the driver had been through a lot but surprisingly there wasn’t much body roll and even the driver didn’t seem to be working hard at the wheel.
They also did this test on a specific set of tires and that also affected the result to some extent. According to this test, the Skoda Octavia can easily change lanes when driving at a speed of 74 km/h or slightly lower. Skoda Octavia is one of the best looking sedans in the country and comes with a feature-packed cabin. it has features such as full digital instrument panel, touchscreen infotainment screen, dual zone climate control, premium leather interiors, wireless phone charging and so on.
