What Car? says

2 out of 5 stars

For For very little cash, the Felicia has excellent build quality and a spacious cabin

Against There's no power steering and, on base models, very little safety equipment

Verdict It's a solid and spacious supermini made with Volkswagen involvement

Go for… 1.3-litre LXi

Avoid… 1.9 diesel

Skoda Felicia Hatchback
  • 1. Check the wheelarches and sills for rust on early cars
  • 2. Transmission problems are not unheard of
  • 3. The cylinder-head gasket can leak on 1.3-litre models if not maintained properly
  • 4. For a supermini, the boot is a very good size
  • 5. The suspension is a common cause of MoT failure - make sure you have it checked out
