platform/badge = same difference in the end

This will be another unmitigated disaster like the GT86.

hardly the same and nobody knows anything about the forthcoming product

2 seaters are a hard sell, it has that going against it

Sharing platform. How is a Skoda more reliable than a VW? It wouldn't make sense if it was merely badge engineering. Event the Fiat 124 and Mazda MX-5 have distinct styles and driving characteristics.

Partly because they don't tend to get the new tech first, so by the time a new engine/electric/etc. is built into a Skoda the first teething problems have been ironed out, and party - here comes the nature of J.D. Power surveys into play (they measure how satisfied people are, not actual defects per car) - the expectation of customers are slightly lower. I doubt that in real defects per 100 cars a say Skoda citigo is any different than the identical VW up, or a Skoda Karoq differs forma Seat Ateca (a reskin) with the same engine/transmission combo....

The MX5 and FIat 124 have a different power train (and different springs and anti roll bars), so naturally they are different to drive (and IMO a good example how this platform sharing can be done), both cars have enough character differences to justify the existence (and IMO in flesh also look quite different)

Those 2 share a bunch of stuff and their interiors, hoping theres no such similarities between the new zoo4 and snoopra
