Skoda is an iconic name in the world of car manufacturing, and for good reason. Not only was it founded as far back as 1895, but since 1991 it has been a subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group, one of the largest car manufacturers in the world. What's more, its headquarters remain in the Czech city of Mladá Boleslav to this day. This makes Skoda one of the oldest car manufacturers still operating today right up there with brands like Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Tatra and Opel. It truly is a hallmark name in vehicle production that has stood the test of time. While Skoda had a reputation for subpar build quality and reliability before Volkswagen’s takeover during the 1980s, the Czech company has come quite a long way since then. In 2020, WhatCar included several Skoda models in their list of ‘Most Reliable Used Cars’ comprising the latest versions of the Kodiaq (2016-), Octavia (2013-2020), Karoq (2017-), Fabia (2015-), Superb (2016-) and Citigo (2012-). This serves as a testament to Skoda’s transformation from an unreliable manufacturer to one of the most reliable out there, something which can largely be attributed to Volkswagen’s guiding hand.

    Skoda in Motorsport

    Skoda has been a part of various motorsport events since its early years. They first joined the FIA World Rally Championship in 1999, using their Octavia VRS as their chosen car. This model had several highlights, most notably, Armin Schwarz’s third-place victory at the 2001 Safari Rally in Kenya. Since 2003, Skoda switched to the smaller model Fabia for their rally vehicles and this proved to be successful with drivers such as Jan Kopecký, Francois Duval and Colin McRae leading the championships. This example of competitiveness continues to this day and is evidence of Skoda’s dedication to being involved in exciting motorsports events.
