It’s also home to a multitude of museums, including the Tudor House and Southampton Maritime museums. The SeaCity Museum is located in the west wing of the Civic Centre and focuses on the city’s trading history and the famous ocean-going passenger liner, The Titanic.

The Guildhall (currently branded The O2 Guildhall) has played host to a mass of musical talent in its time: Pink Floyd, David Bowie, The Killers, Amy Winehouse and Lostprophets have all played here, as well as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Southampton Philharmonic Choir.

Skoda

Skoda Auto is a Czech automobile manufacturer originally founded in 1895 as Laurin & Klement. In 1925 Laurin & Klement was acquired by the industrial conglomerate Skoda Works, which itself became state-owned in 1948.

In 2000 Skoda became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group.

How popular is Skoda in the United Kingdom?

Skoda’s growing success has been down to strong support from its parent VW Group and its credibility as a mainstream supplier of great value sensible cars.

The number of Skoda cars on the road in the UK has grown consistently over the past 20 years to over 740k and rising.

Great value, solid, sensible motoring

With models so closely related to those of Volkswagen, Audi and Seat, it’s no surprise that the mechanics behind Skoda’s straightforward range of practical town and city cars has proven so reliable and increased in popularity over time.

They deliver models from city car to saloon, and as you’d expect in today’s market, there’s a couple of SUV models thrown in to complete the set.

Skoda supply an abundance of choice and trim for differing budgets

There are a plethora of trim levels available for every model—and that’s not forgetting Skoda’s entry into the electric car market too.

The Skoda Citigoe iV

Skoda’s 4-seater city car electric model is powered exclusively by a 36.8kWh lithium-ion battery allowing for a range of 265km. With zero emissions and compact dimensions, the Cititgoe iV is the ideal city car, taking into account its practical interior storage, nimble footprint and ecological performance.

Skoda’s reliability and reputation

Skoda ranked 7th place out of 30 car brands in the What Car? Reliability Survey in 2018.

Given that most of the marques to make the top 10 were Japanese or Asian manufacturers, it’s quite an achievement for this budget brand to attain such a high rank and efficiency score—only 2.1% behind the number one spot (Suzuki: 97.7% efficient).
