Our review of must-reads from 2018 begins with the grandmother of all ŠKODA sports utility vehicles. These days SUVs are all the rage, but back in 1966 the TREKKA, a model based on the ŠKODA OCTAVIA and made in New Zealand, was truly one of a kind. Yet it was a far cry from the luxury of today’s SUVs. Sure, few would have begrudged the fact that there were no heated seats, but this model didn’t even have a car radio. To be fair, though, it would be some years yet before mass-produced radios made their way into any ŠKODA. As late as 1992, the FAVORIT’s head units were still only an optional feature, or would sometimes be fitted in special editions. Since then, the development of audio systems has come along in leaps and bounds, to the extent that these days you can remain constantly online in a ŠKODA. This offers a whole lot of advantages. If you were online in March 2018, for example, Storyboard gave you the chance to explore ŠKODA’s Geneva Motor Show stand, where the main draw was the ŠKODA VISION X concept.
