The first thing to note about Skoda is that they are no longer the butt of jokes - their products are well-priced for value, reliable and have built-up a legion of fans. Now under the umbrella of Volkswagen, Skoda offers a range of high quality cars and is growing its market share.
Indeed, led by the well-priced Fabia, an excellent supermini to the impressive Superb, this marque deserves a closer look.
The Fabia is a supermini with a hard-to-beat offering. It has a solid build and low running costs – for many drivers the Fabia will deliver a comfortable car that is reliable and practical.
The firm also makes the excellent Citigo, a city car that has been designed to be a rewarding driving experience around towns. With lots of equipment and personality, owners give strong feedback on the car’s abilities and reliability.
The carmaker also offers the unconventional Roomster which offers families space and practicality. This might be a mini people carrier but it comes with a big boot and rear seats that are easy to move to create a large load space.
While the Roomster is a mini MPV, the Yeti is an excellent MPV with a strong build quality, a practical interior with lots of equipment and a rewarding driving experience. For anyone interested in a crossover car for their abilities and space, the Yeti deserves a closer look.
For those who like the outdoors, or who lead an ‘active lifestyle’ then the Yeti Outdoor is for you.
Skoda also make the Rapid for the compact hatchback segment. It’s a nice family car with lots of equipment and practicality and there’s also the Rapid Spaceback which is the estate version.
However, two of the best known models are the Octavia and Superb. The Octavia offers great value, an impressive offering with lots of equipment and a solid build. It’s also a nice and economical car to drive. There are some clever ideas at play in the car and has a sound reputation.
The Superb is a well-named car and it offers a strong alternative for anyone needing a larger family saloon or hatchback. All of Skoda’s qualities are to be found here: it impresses on every level and has lots of space on board.

The main difference for businesses is that there are often advantages arising from the company's UK VAT status and special conditions may apply for fleet leasing, so prices are often lower.
