SKODA ESTELLE

4-door 4-seater saloon.

When Skoda replaced the S100/S110 series with the Estelle, the car's looks were better but the awful handling remained. As before, these cars had heavy rear-mounted engines and severe oversteer, but were spacious and very cheap to buy. Critical road tests led to a suspension 'package' and less-lethal handling in 1979, but it was still not good. 105s were smallest and cheapest, while 120 models had the larger engine. All had disc brakes, but this one will never be a collector's car.
