Press reviews

At Škoda we understand the importance of independent advice when it comes to buying a new car.

See what some of New Zealand's top motoring journalists have to say about the award-winning Škoda range.

Enyaq press reviews

Škoda's first fully electric SUV

"It’s always a momentous moment when a legacy manufacturer releases its first fully electric vehicle, in this case Škoda with its Kodiaq-sized Enyaq."

Octavia iV press reviews

"Sporty wagons are rare, and rarer still is a PHEV sporty wagon."

Superb iV press reviews

"As was usual for any Škoda Superb, the ride was near on perfect, the car is very refined and our rear-seat passenger was almost sticking his feet straight out in the back. If you haven’t seen the legroom in a Škoda Superb, you’d be blown away. It’s like a limo back there."

Octavia press reviews

“The end result with the new Octavia is a beautifully clean, minimalistic look.”

Superb press reviews

“In the current range, there’s not a single Škoda model I don’t like, and at the top of the Like List is the Superb. We reviewed the Scout model in July, and all it did was remind me how good the Superb is. More than fast enough, AWD, smooth, incredibly spacious, well appointed, well built, value for money...”

Scala press reviews

"The level of space and practicality you get is super impressive. Luxury and safety kit are also generous, making this a great family car."

Kodiaq press reviews

"The practical Škoda Kodiaq is one of the very best seven-seat SUVs, as well as one of the most affordable."

Karoq press reviews

"The Karoq is the first car to use this new engine, and I can confirm this 1.5 motor is a gem. Quiet, torquey, smooth – very smooth".

Kamiq press reviews

“Sometimes a car seems to sit just-right in that goldilocks zone of the market it’s designed for, and the Kamiq Monte Carlo is one of those cars. The balance of price and spec represents great value, it’s big enough but not too big, comfortable, looks good, and is well deserving of our Family Car of the Year title."

Fabia press reviews

"The Škoda Fabia is a well proven supermini contender that builds on the dependable nature of its predecessors with more tech and a surprisingly enjoyable drive. It’s very roomy, handles tidily, has some strong engines."
