Skoda Cars

June 15, 2014

Skoda cars have gone from strength to strength in the past two decades. Once seen as lower class vehicles, the company’s motors have been revitalised since it became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group in 2000.

The smallest car in Skoda’s current range is the Citigo. Effectively, it is a rebadged version of the Volkswagen UP, which was voted as Top Gear Magazine’s ‘Small Car of the Year in 2011 and scooped the What Car? Car of the Year accolade in both 2012 and 2013.

Next up in the range is the Fabia. These have been around for some time now, but remain incredibly popular and it’s easy to see why. The modest mini is simply one of the best in its class. Its program is based on Polo MK 4, but it can be bought in saloon and estate version.

For those looking for something a little more spacious there is the Octavia. With engine sizes ranging between 1.4 and 2.0 litres, there is an Octavia model for everyone and they’re exception value when compared to sister models, the Audi A3 and Volkswagen Jetta.

The Skoda Yeti is family car with a difference. On the fact of it looks like a 4X4, but is available with an engine size of just 1.2 litres. Since its launch in 2009, it has won a myriad of awards and was once described by Jeremy Clarkson as “possibly the best car in the world”.

Other Skoda models to consider include the Superb, Roomster and Scout.
