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.
