Skoda is celebrating five years of car production in China around 740,000 Skoda cars have been delivered to customers in China since July 2007. The first model built and sold in the country was the Octavia in 2007. At almost half a million units produced, the Octavia is the most popular Skoda model in China. Since 2010, the Octavia has also been available in China as an environment-friendly Green Line version and as Octavia RS in a sporty guise.
The Skoda Octavia is the perfect family car for growing families on a tight budget. It has a spacious interior, six foot adults can comfortably sit in the rear and the boot is extremely spacious, it is comfortable and easy to drive and most versions are cheap to buy and to run. All materials have a high quality and solid feel, and the interior shames many more expensive models for its fit and finish.
Skoda models are proving hugely popular with customers in China, with the Fabia, Octavia and Superb regularly receiving important awards, including the Octavia being voted most dependable car in its class in 2011. Octavia and Superb were both named ‘Car of the Year’ as part of the ‘China Auto Market Media Award’ in 2011.
In 2013, Skoda will be introducing two additional Skoda models in China, namely its new compact saloon the Rapid and its compact SUV Skoda Yeti.
