Saw this in person as I am looking to upgrade my Sandero for something bigger, looked nice on photos and videos but in real life it's unfortunately very small car
Of course Skoda are owned by Volkswagen so inside a Skoda you get a reliable VW engine. I have an Octavia (based on the "shell" of a Golf but stretched). Fine car, HUGE boot, loads of space when the back seats folded down. Very reliable, nice drive. I would happily buy another Octavia (if my current one ever gives up on me)
Skoda - brand is often laughed at by non owners Skoda - vehicles usually very reliable, parts can often be more difficult to get hold of when compared to say Ford and they don’t hold their price too well. If buying second hand it means you get a bargain, if buying new you get mugged off.
I only need to change the car as it's 5 years old and the company I work for pays me to use my car only if it's less than 6 years old. The new Octavia looks stunning, I didn't even bother looking for another brand. Have a look at Skoda Approved Used Cars, already some Scala there.
My Octavia is an absolute tank. With the rear seats down it will swallow anything. Sixteen years old and refuses to die.
