Škoda Favorit 135; 136 (Type 781)


The Škoda Favorit was the first Škoda model with the engine in the front and a front driven axle.

The Favorit had its premiere in July 1987 and was produced together with the 105, 120 and 130 models until 1990.

It was a hatchback and had a basic engine with a volume of 1289 cc.


Due to stricter emissions limits, Favorits with variously modified engines started to appear on the market, first with a unmanaged and then with an managed catalytic converter. The automaker offered a number of limited series - action models  with extra features (Black Line, Silver Line, Green Line, etc.).
