Who are Skoda?
With a rich history dating back to 1895, Skoda began life as a bicycle manufacturer, moving into the car manufacturing market in 1945. Surviving two world wars and Soviet occupation, Skoda eventually became part of the Volkswagen Group in 1990.
The butt of jokes for many years, the Czech car manufacturers eventually began to shrug off their ‘out-dated’ reputation with the introduction of the first Octavia in 1997.
Today, after struggling to match the kudos of bigger named brands, Skoda are finally getting the respect they deserve. Their award-winning Kodiaq was named 2018 Autoexpress Large SUV of the Year, and Parker’s 2018 Best Seven Seater winner.
The Kodiaq offers spacious style and a smooth comfortable ride, rivalling the Land Rover Discovery Sport and Hyundai Santa Fe.
For those wanting an economical and practical city car, the Citigo offers great value for money.
And for those wanting a budget priced hatchback with capable 4x4 handling, consider the distinctive-looking Yeti.
