The key information below will help you decide but always feel free to contact us here at Heritage ŠKODA for further advice or to book a test drive.


What kind of driver are you?

Intra City
If you use your vehicle for short journeys within a city, such as for the school run or for shopping, then a petrol engine would be a suitable choice. You rarely drive on motorways, and do minimal mileage, mainly in built-up areas.

Inter City
For high-mileage drivers predominantly taking longer journeys on motorways and rarely travelling within the city, a diesel engine would be a considered option.

Town & Country
For those living outside the city, but regularly commuting by motorway, a diesel engine would be suitable for consideration.

Pleasure Drive
If you love the thrill and drive mainly for pleasure on country roads, and rarely in urban environments, then either a diesel or petrol would suit you.
