Skoda is one of the oldest manufacturers of automobiles. The company started producing cars from their HQ in Czechoslovakia 1895. Their headquarters are still based in Mladá Boleslav a statutory city in the north of the Czech Republic. Now under the control of the Volkswagen Audi Group – Skoda have a solid reputation producing small, compact vehicles ideally suited for new drivers. The Skoda Citigo and Fabia are their most popular as first cars.
The Skoda Citigo hit the streets of Europe in 2011. Skoda is part of the Volkswagen Audi Group so it’s no surprise the Citigo is built on the same platform as the Seat Mii and the VW Up. Like it’s siblings the Citigo is a supermini aimed at conquering urban congestion, limited parking space and a desire to squeeze out as many miles per gallon as possible. In September 2020 Skoda announced the cessation of Citigo production but don’t let that put you off buying one. The Citigo always does well in first time driver car reviews and there’s plenty on the market
The Skoda Fabia was introduced in 1999 as a soon to be successor of the Skoda Felicia. The Felicia was axed in 2001 leaving the new Fabia to take it’s place as a popular alternative to the Ford Fiesta / Vauxhall Corsa sized small to compact family cars. The Fabia has undergone 3 major upgrades with the third generation released in 2015 and still in production today. Most popular is the 5 door hatchback version with a longer combi version (estate style) available for those wanting to carry larger loads, pets, pushchairs etc.
