3) Škoda Yeti/Kodiaq
Škoda is another unknown name in the U.S., but it lives under the Volkswagen brand. Its cars ride on the same platform, though the Czech-built cars offer a compelling package for a lower price than their VW counterparts. Again, if you watched a particular British car show, you know about the Yeti, which had been described as one of the most “complete” cars around.
Then there’s the Kodiaq SUV. This also comes based on a VW platform, in this case the Tiguan. To my mind, though, this is a more handsome version than the Tiguan, while it still offers similar powertrains to what we’d see in the U.S., including a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with a seven-speed DSG.
