The Škoda Favorit was a small family car produced by Czech manufacturer Škoda Auto from 1987 to 1995.

The Favorit had a 1.3 L I4 engine, producing 62 hp (46 kW). It eventually succeeded the ageing rear-engined, rear-wheel drive Škoda 105/120 Estelle, and was a considerable move towards the modern mainstream in design terms thanks to its Bertone-designed hatchback body and front-wheel drive. It proved itself as one of Central Europe's most popular cars, and was also exported to a number of countries including Chile, Israel and Turkey.

The 1.3 L unit had its combustion chambers re-designed by Ricardo Consulting Engineers in the UK, while German car maker Porsche helped engineer the engine mountings (this engine was used until 2003 as a 1.4 unit in the Skoda Fabia).

The Favorit was replaced in 1994 by the Felicia, developed in conjunction with Volkswagen, by then owners of Škoda.

This is an interesting take on the concept. I never thought of it that way. Big thanks for keeping me entertained.
