News: ŠKODA RECORDS SUPERB FIRST HALF-YEAR REGISTRATIONS IN 2016

If you were to ask MotorMartin which manufacturer has worked the hardest recently to change their image for the better, then surely ŠKODA are that company.

And now, just a couple of decades later, ŠKODA have a range of vehicles on sale that most manufacturers would be proud of.

News: NEW ŠKODA SUPERB QUALIFIES AS FINALIST FOR 2016 WORLD CAR OF THE YEAR TITLE

My how times have changed. When MotorMartin was a boy, ŠKODA was worthy of our ridicule only. Lumped in with Lada they were forever the butt of schoolchildrens’ jokes in playgrounds the length and breadth of the country and beyond. So cruel.
