Škoda, or Skoda as it is commonly known, is the fourth oldest company in the world and has its origins in the Czech Republic, although it has been a subsidiary brand of Volkswagen since 1991. If you're looking for a used Skoda, continue reading to find out more about the history of the brand and some of its most popular vehicles.
Skoda's first motor vehicle was a motorbike, introduced in 1899 and called the Slavia; the addition of cars to its production would come not much later, in 1905. It quickly established itself on the international market; by the mid-20th century it had a reputation as a manufacturer of safe and durable cars, although by the end of the 20th century it was lagging behind the industry leaders in terms of technology. After the arrival of Volkswagen, the brand regained its vigour and the Octavia and Fabia models managed to gain a place in the competitive European market.
Skoda has not only advanced technologically but also has very attractive models both aesthetically and in price. If you want to know the most popular models of the brand, continue reading, we may have available the second hand Skoda you need:
The Skoda Fabia is a fairly compact car but with a spacious 350-litre boot. Its size, price and up-to-date technology make it attractive enough for us to be interested in its features.
The Fabia feels pleasant to drive. Comfort inside the cabin is provided by a suspension that manages to absorb bumps in the road. In the back, the seats are comfortable enough for two adults. If you're travelling with children, there are also ISOFIX mountings, so you can fit child seats.
The most popular Skoda Fabia models are the 1.0 TSI with 110 hp or 95 hp, the latter being a sufficient option for everyday use.
This is an affordable car, with lots of extras, durable materials and cheap to maintain. If you like the aesthetics, don't want to spend too much money and want a long-lasting car, this is a highly recommended option.
Skoda Fabia shares mechanics with the Audi A1, Volkswagen Polo and Seat Ibiza, in case you want to take a look at other similar alternatives. Come and ask us if you have any questions, we are here to advise you.
Skoda Octavia is the brand's most popular model; it's very cheap compared to its rivals and offers a lot more for less, but is it all as good as it seems? Let's take a look inside, maybe we've found the car you've been looking for.
The interior of this model is stylish and comfortable, ideal for families due to its ample cabin and boot space. The seats are comfortable for long journeys, not only because of its comfort, but also because of its power and low fuel consumption. Driving is also easy, the smooth steering makes it easy to park and it feels safe and stable.
When it comes to choosing an engine, the 1.6 TDI version is the most fuel-efficient, at 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres, which means you won't have to stop at the petrol station. But if you're looking for more power, the 2.0 TDI version will give you that extra boost with equally efficient fuel consumption, making it an interesting option.
All versions of the Octavia have an infotainment system, and the Ambition version has 8 speakers and Bluetooth connectivity with the possibility of using Apple Carplay or Android Auto. The boot has a capacity of up to 590 litres and 1580 litres with the seats folded down. You're hardly going to fill that space, even if you like to travel and have luggage with you.
