Skoda To Make Compact Limousine

WILL OBAMA AND HIS ECONOMIC TEAM FIT INSIDE? Czech automaker Skoda, once synonymous with 20th Century-era Communist vehicles, plans to unveil a compact limousine later this year. Compact and limousine are not two terms easily uttered in the same livery breath, given the priority on comfort for limousine vehicles.

But Skoda has made strides since 1990 rebranding and reengineering itself as the Hyundai of Eastern Europe, with its higher quality and progressive compact vehicles. At least a Skoda limo, no matter what the size, will be an improvement on the pictured limousine once used to ferry government dignitaries. To come to think of it, that old-school, rickety-clap stretch could be used as an exit vehicle (The Hope Limo) for President Obama if he leaves the White House on 1/20/2013. -- Martin Romjue, LCT editor
