Skoda car reviews

Forget the old jokes about Skoda. Once regarded as the lame duck of European brands, the Czech marque has enjoyed a major turnaround under the stewardship of parent company Volkswagen.  

Models like the Fabia and Octavia have established Skoda as a producer of surprisingly high quality mainstream cars that offer great value. Skoda is now widening its market reach with new models such as the Roomster MPV and Yeti SUV.

Skoda owners seem a very happy bunch too, impressed with the dealers that sell and service their cars.

7 New Skoda reviews available

Skoda Citigo reviews

Skoda has entered uncharted waters with its Citigo city car – a sub-Fabia supermini which is mechanically identical to the Volkswagen Up. It's a small-but-perfectly-formed city car that's available in both three- and five-door versions.

Latest model: Skoda Citigo (2012-)

Skoda Fabia reviews

The Skoda Fabia is a cleanly-styled, well-built supermini available as a five-door hatchback or a small estate. It's closely related to the Volkswagen Polo, but is more utility-orientated, with practical packaging and a no-nonsense image. 

Latest models: Skoda Fabia (2007-) and Skoda Fabia Estate (2008-)

Skoda Octavia reviews

The Skoda Octavia is a comfortable large family-sized hatchback, which is easy to drive, affordable to buy, and cheap to run. It's also available as a practical estate, with variants including the high-riding Scout 4x4. 

Latest model: Skoda Octavia (2013-) and Skoda Octavia Estate (2013-)

Skoda Rapid reviews

The Skoda Rapid is a budget-priced family car with space for five adults and a huge boot. Buyers can choose from the Rapid hatchback (which is styled like a saloon) and the smaller Rapid Spaceback (which looks like an estate).

Latest model: Skoda Rapid (2012-)

Skoda Roomster reviews

The Skoda Roomster MPV is a bit of an oddball to look at but it offers an impressive level of practicality. It's pleasing to drive compared with more van-like than rivals such as the Citroen Berlingo Multispace, but it's also roomier than most mini-MPVs.

Latest model: Skoda Roomster (2006-)

Skoda Superb reviews

The Skoda Superb is either a step too far for Volkswagen's budget brand or one of the most underrated luxury cars around, depending on your badge-snobbery. The second generation car (2008-) has a curious saloon/hatchback hybrid tailgate for better practicality.  

Latest model: Skoda Superb (2008-) & Skoda Superb Estate (2010-)

Skoda Yeti reviews

The Skoda Yeti is a compact crossover available with front- or four-wheel drive, the latter with good off-road ability. It's essentially a family car rival for the Nissan Qashqai and it delivers low running costs and good all-round versatility.

Latest model: Skoda Yeti (2009-)
