    Teased: Skoda previews sleek new Fabia hatch
    1405684800

    The Škoda Fabia has been on the world market for seven years now, which means it's about time for replacement. And that's just what Škoda has in store. The Czech hatch is based on the Volkswagen Polo, but offers a bit more space for a bit less money than its German counterpart, ...

    Official: Skoda releases rugged new Octavia Scout soft-roader [w/video]
    1404912600

    Automakers may be paying a lot of attention these days to making their crossovers and SUVs drive more like cars, but at the same time, they're also making cars that feel more like SUVs. We're talking about models like the Subaru Outback, Audi Allroad and Volvo XC70. These soft-road (if not quite ...

    Spy Shots: Skoda testing Octavia RS280 sleeper wagon
    1404594120

    American buyers in the market for a hot hatch from the Volkswagen Group can choose between the GTI or the Golf R, but our compatriots overseas have more options at their disposal, all based on the same platform. They can go for more Latin flavor in the Seat Leon Cupra (available in two states of ...

    Official: Skoda interns chop down CitiJet concept for Wörthersee
    1401366420

    Škoda doesn't sell nearly as many of its Citigo city cars as it does the Octavia, Rapid, Fabia, Yeti or Superb. In fact the Citigo is its second slowest seller, ahead only of the Roomster cargo van. That could be because it only sells the Citigo in Europe, or because, while its other ...

    Official: Skoda rallies to the cause with Yeti Xtreme concept
    1401193800

    Volkswagen rejoined the World Rally Championship last year and immediately took both the drivers' and manufacturers' titles, and is already on track to do the same this year. But before the VW brand itself got back into rallying, that role belonged to its Czech subsidiary. Škoda won the ...

    Teased: Škoda headed to Wörthersee with CitiJet roadster concept
    1397860140

    Every year, fans of Volkswagen Group performance cars gather at a lake in Austria to celebrate the GTI Treffen. But what started as a fan-fest for VW hot hatches has long since expanded to include other brands under the company's sprawling umbrella, and Škoda never misses out. In 2012, ...

    Geneva: Škoda VisionC concept makes us want to cash this foreign Czech [w/video]
    1394119980

    Of all the brands under the Volkswagen Group umbrella, Škoda is not the one we'd most associate with cutting-edge design. Its hatchbacks and sedans tend to be styled rather conservatively to cater to tastes that would be turned off by the flash of a Seat or even a VW. But that changes here ...

    Geneva: Škoda classes up the Octavia with Laurin & Klement edition
    1394114400

    Škoda is, by our estimation, to Volkswagen what Mercury was to Ford, Oldsmobile was to General Motors or Lancia was (and technically still is) to Fiat: not quite a luxury brand, but appealing to conservative tastes just the same. (Only where those brands have all faltered, VW still seems ...

    Official: Škoda takes page from Audi's playbook with VisionC concept
    1393515000

    Škoda is not a brand we'd associate with excitement. Sure, it has thrown its hat in the performance ring with its vRS models, but even that's been whittled down to just the Octavia vRS, and the Octavia, while competent, is hardly something worth getting excited over. But the Czech ...

    Official: World Car finalists announced

    The 2014 World Car of the Year Awards are set to be handed out at the upcoming New York International Auto Show, meaning now is about the time we can start talking about finalists. The official list has been published and we'll admit, there are some surprising entries here. Selected by 69 jurors ...

    Recalls: VW recalling 2.64M vehicles worldwide over engine, light issues
    1384444740

    Volkswagen is staging a massive, worldwide recall that's already grown from 1.68 million to 2.64 million vehicles and covers three different issues across a number of vehicles. We already reported on 61,000 Tiguans getting recalled over lighting issues - that was just in the US. Globally, ...

    Report: Skoda downsizing RS lineup
    1379420820

    There are products in the Volkswagen Group that we wish we got on this side of the Atlantic, and there are those we don't. Škoda's products, by and large, don't fall in the former category – with a few exceptions. Its RS models represent such an exception, but new reports coming in ...

    Frankfurt: Skoda Octavia RS adds versatility to the performance formula
    1378947660

    One of the highlights of covering a European auto show like Frankfurt is the amount of forbidden fruit on hand. Most of the cars we admire from across the pond, like this Škoda Octavia RS, are on display, allowing us to see them, sit in them and push their buttons. Powered by a 2.0-liter, ...

    Frankfurt: Skoda Rapid Spaceback lacks space in back [w/video]
    1378940520

    If you were to surmise that Skoda is to Volkswagen as Mercury was to Ford, Plymouth was to Chrysler or Lancia is to Fiat, you wouldn't be far off. It's not quite luxury but not really sporty either, and it doesn't have many stand-alone products. But the Rapid is an exception. While most of the ...

    Frankfurt: Skoda Rapid Sport concept actually looks rapid
    1378936860

    This past May, Skoda pulled in to the Worthersee festival – a gathering of Volkswagen Group hot-hatch enthusiasts in Austria – with a gussied-up version of its Rapid sedan. It was awesome, but we missed it because a) we weren't there and b) let's face it, it's a Skoda. But the Czech ...

    Official: Skoda builds its four-millionth Octavia
    1377781260

    Skoda may not fall on your radar screen since it doesn't market in North America, but don't think for one second that it doesn't count. Volkswagen's Czech subsidiary sells and even manufactures cars around the world that sell in big numbers. In fact, it just built it four-millionth Octavia. Now ...

    Video: Skoda Octavia vRS is just the thing for your pumped-up neighborhood
    1374881340

    Skoda, oh Skoda. You're just so cool. Maybe it's the fact that it's a brand that we don't get in these United States, but Skoda's rebadged Volkswagens, in particular the new Octavia vRS shown here, are just different enough from the hum-drum VWs on our shores that the Czech brand seems strangely ...

    Official: Skoda Octavia vRS set to storm into Goodwood
    1370557800

    We've been led to expect good things out of the third-generation Škoda Octavia, Volkswagen's new Czech-badged C-segment entrant that rides atop the company's MQB architecture along with the new Audi A3 and VW Golf. We liked what we saw of the handsome – if conservative – ...

    Geneva: 2013 Škoda Octavia hits Geneva in sedan and wagon trims [w/video]
    1362661200

    Volkswagen's Czech brand Škoda had a big show here in Geneva, even if most North American car buyers would never know it. Škoda brought its newly introduced Octavia model to the show this year, in both sedan and wagon ("combi") formulations. The Škoda business model in ...

    Official: New Skoda Octavia, cast in the same mold, arrives full of new features
    1355490000

    There's no reason a one-trick pony can't be an entertaining success – you've just really got to like that one trick. And while we're not saying that the new offerings from Škoda are one-dimensional, we are saying that it's a good thing we like the Czech brand's new design language; ...
