Drive Wire: Skoda Might Be Coming To America

In news of the odd, Volkswagen may be bringing Skodas to America. VW recently filed with American agencies to protect the Skoda name and logos. Skoda is sort of, kind of a down-market version of VW, but they also make weird stuff - we’ve always wanted a Fabia FunStar, which is more or less a Golf-El-Camino sort of thing. No word if we’d get that, but the superb sedan, the Octavia hatch, and the yeti SUV are possible. Skoda’s entry into this country would be a way of selling VW products without the Dieselgate cloud that hangs over that name right now.
