Reviewed | Škoda Superb iV SE Technology Hatch

In Car Reviews, Hybrid, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

In this crazy world we live in, many test cars aren’t getting the thorough workout they deserve. Would this be the case for the Škoda Superb iV? So, when the day arrived, I was keen to get some quality ‘seat time’ in the iV. Being the Superb plug-in version, it has a very usable EV range combined with the conventional …

Škoda Kodiaq SE L, a perfect choice SUV

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

I love the Škoda Kodiaq. It’s a big brute of an SUV with more capacity and space than I could ever feasibly need. So, I decided in the interest of fairness; I should test the 2.0 TDi version, fitted with the DSG transmission. The spec is the same – both cars were in mid-range SE L trim which is the ‘sweet …

Reviewed, the Škoda Scala Monte Carlo

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

At first, you may be a little confused as to where the Scala fits into Škoda’s vast range. Well, it’s smaller than a Kamiq, but not really bigger than a Fabia. See? It’s a little confusing. Resembling the discontinued ‘wagon’ version of the Fabia, the Scala essentially takes up the same mantle. Five seats, clever design and impressive styling are …

The New Škoda Octavia, more than satisfying

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

When the new Škoda Octavia launched, was it some sort of prodigy come true, a miracle on earth, the greatest thing since sliced bread… With the motoring cliche “all the car you could ever need” being bandied around like it was the only words anyone could say on Twitter, I looked forward to finding out if a few months after …

Škoda Superb SE L – It’s all in the name.

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

When a company names its car ‘Superb’ you may think they’re hyping themselves up somewhat. Well, in this instance, Škoda absolutely nailed it – as I shall now explain. To start with, just look at it; Yes, there are some excellent looking crossovers out there, but nothing quite commands road presence in everyday life like a sedan (ok, this is …

The Škoda Karoq Edition, a rather sensible SUV

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

Family SUVs can be dull, dreary things these days, but thankfully you have offerings such as the Škoda Karoq Edition. The Karoq sits smack-bang in the middle of the Škoda SUV line up, offering more space and size than the Kamiq (read our review), but below the sheer size (and with two less seats) than the large Kodiaq (read our …

Škoda Kodiaq SE L, what’s not to like?

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

I have to admit that I have positively no need whatsoever for a seven-seat vehicle in my life, but after spending a week with the Škoda Kodiaq SE L, I’m wondering if there is anyway I can justify it. Having had a run of very good-looking but somewhat rough-riding cars with large alloys and low- profile tires, I was relieved …

One of the best, the Škoda Kamiq Monte Carlo

In Car Reviews, Skoda by Kieran Bicknell

Fun, stylish and tech-y: The Kamiq Monte Carlo is the cream of Škodas’ baby SUV crop. Let’s start with how it looks; As much as I appreciated the big, utilitarian looks of the Kodiaq, the Kamiq is far more aesthetically easy on the eye, with well-sized proportions and it looks absolutely fantastic even when standing still. For a small SUV …
