Skoda cars have an excellent reputation for producing quality cars at a
fair price. In Ireland Skodas are a very popular car for business users
and family drivers alike.

Gone are the days of the Skoda jokes, where Skoda was classed with Lada
and Polski Fiat. Skoda is now part of the Volkswagen group and the cars
are well designed and look great.

There are only three basic models, Fabia, Octavia and Superb.

The models have been designed to fit in between the conventional size
classes, for example the Fabia is between a Fiesta and a Focus in size.
The engines are quiet, but provide all the power that 99% of motorists
ever need. Inside the cars are spacious and comfortable, with a high
driver satisfaction rating.

The diesel engined Skoda Octavia has brilliant fuel economy at around 700
miles/1100 kilometres a tank full and it's still a decent performer too.

Rear legroom isn't brilliant, compensation for a big boot, but plenty big
enough for a family and occasional adults

As for handling the Skoda Octavia beats the equivalent Volkswagens due to
it's stiffer and better ride that's needed for rough Czech (and
Irish)roads compared to the smooth German ones of Volkswagen.

Comfortable on long distances, but the road noise level is noticeable.
The Skoda Octavia Estate car just goes on and on. The loading platform
seems endless. This estate car is also one of the most pleasant to drive
that I have ever come across

The New Octavia car is even better value than the older model. The
differences on the outside are subtle, but inside is different story,
with redesigned seats and instrument panel. You know you are in a
different Skoda Octavia.

The Skoda Fabia is quiet at all speeds. Great steering, brakes, and taut
body control. Amazingly frugal engine keeps getting better as it matures,
averaging over 65mpg on daily country commutes. Beautiful Skoda gearbox
with very smooth changes.

Skoda's super efficient air-con does not affect the Fabia's performance
or fuel consumption. Heated seats are perfect for winter. Rock solid
construction enhances passenger safety.

I think that the skoda diesel engine is the perfect partner for this car
as the fuel economy even in town is in the high 50's and the torque is
amazing in this small car making it seriously quick, surprising a few
Fiesta and Corsa drivers!

The Skoda Fabia is a real Pocket Rocket! The steering is brilliant - very
light when you need it in parking spaces, but it weight's up nicely when
out on the open road.

The Skoda Fabia estate is an amazing package of space and economy. The
1.2 16v engine delivers far more power than any small estate car driver
has the right to expect

Seats appear to be too uncomfortable at the start as they are very hard,
but they soften up and become very comfortable after 10 minutes and you
appreciate this in a long drive and it is far better than it's rivals!

The ride is wonderful! Very supple for long distance cruising and a great
handler. Amazing!

Loaded with kit for the money and you'll save money with it's excellent
fuel economy.

Nowhere else will you find a value for money car like the Skoda Superb.
The Superb has features that are generally only found in cars costing
half as much again. A test drive in the Skoda Superb is a totally
different world from a test drive in the very competent Skoda Octavia.
The two cars may look very similar outside, but inside and for driving
pleasure the Superb wins hands down.

The Skoda Superb really does live up to its name. It is superb in every
way - good handling, excellent drive, full of features such as tip-tronic
transmission and electric seat c/w memory, spacious cabin, comfortable
ride and powerful engine (turbo). The boot is cavernous!

Its actual rear leg-room is even larger than a Mercedes E class.
The top of the range Skoda Superb is a very high quality, well put
together and extremely spacious, luxury family car.

Great engine, smooth auto gearbox, wonderful overtaking ability, relaxed
cruising and very economical.

Coupled with great features and reasonable price, the Skoda Superb really
is value-for-money. It's money well spent!
