The new ŠKODA Fabia - What Car? Car of the Year 2015

New ŠKODA Fabia is named What Car? Car of the Year 2015

08/01/2015
The new ŠKODA Fabia has won the prestigious What Car? Car of the Year 2015 award, at a glittering ceremony in London, having also been named ‘Best Small Car’, while the ŠKODA Octavia has been named ‘Best Family Car’.

Milton Keynes, 8th January 2015 – It’s the second time that ŠKODA’s popular small car has won the top prize – the first generation Fabia won the award back in 2000.

The new ŠKODA Fabia – which was revealed to the public at the Paris Motor Show last October, and is in UK showrooms now – is the third-generation of ŠKODA’s popular small car. Since the first-generation Fabia went on sale in 2000, some 250,000 have found homes with British buyers, and 3.5 million have been sold worldwide.

Available in five-door Hatch and (from March) Estate forms, the new Fabia introduces innovative safety, comfort and infotainment systems to the segment. It features an expressive, dynamic design with smooth proportions, crystalline shapes and clear-cut lines. The new Fabia is also more spacious, stronger and more efficient than its predecessor, thanks both to significant weight-saving and the introduction of cleaner EU6-compliant engines that help to make it up to 17 per cent more efficient.

The award was collected by ŠKODA CEO Prof. Dr. h.c. Winfried Vahland, who said: ‘The new ŠKODA Fabia is, in every respect, simply more car and offers both innovative technology and emotionally-charged design. It is ideal for the modern, urban mobility of today. We are very confident that the new Fabia will write another chapter in the model’s success story, win over new customer groups and, as an important pillar of our growth strategy, further strengthen the brand.’

What Car? editor Jim Holder said: ‘The Fabia wins not only because it’s a superb small car that’s practical, well equipped and cheap to run, but also because of the rivals it has managed to dispose of in the process.

‘When you consider the strength of the competition the new Fabia has had to beat to top its class, it simply has to win.’

Director of ŠKODA UK, Alasdair Stewart, said: ‘We are delighted to have been given these accolades by What Car?. UK customers trust What Car? when they are buying a new car, and winning the Car of the Year award is the perfect introduction for the new Fabia on the UK market.

‘We’re excited about the Fabia; it’s a key model for our retailers and also for our customers. This award sets us up perfectly for the year ahead. The new Fabia’s just the start of another exciting year for ŠKODA – the new Fabia Estate will be here in March, and the new Superb will be on the roads in September. The buying experience is also going to be better than ever, thanks to our retailers transforming their showrooms with a new look.’

The ŠKODA brand has demonstrated its strength with five years of record growth, culminating in sales of 76,027 cars in the UK last year (some 10,000 more than in 2013), and over one million cars worldwide in the same period.

ŠKODA communicates its new, modern design language in the SUV segment. The brand will be showcasing its new show car – the ŠKODA VisionS – at the 2016 Geneva International Motor Show, hinting at how ŠKODA’s future SUV could look.
ŠKODA UK is urging motorists to get set for safe winter motoring, as new research reveals that up to 28 million* cars across the country could be kitted out with tyres that aren’t ideal for the conditions.
ŠKODA has triumphed once again at the 2016 What Car? Awards thanks to three separate category wins and six price point victories, all of which ensures this is the most comprehensive haul enjoyed by the Czech manufacturer to date.
Parents in the UK spent a whopping £997 million* in 2015 on food, drink and other items to keep their kids occupied on long car journeys, according to new research. And yet, the study by ŠKODA UK shows, many families don’t carry out vehicle safety checks before they set off.
The ŠKODA Yeti has scooped yet another key industry award, having just been named Used Car of the Year by Car Dealer Magazine. The award was announced at the publication’s annual Used Car of the Year ceremony held at The Brewery in central London.
The ŠKODA Superb Estate has triumphed once again at the annual Scottish Car of the Year awards, driving off with the 2015 Estate Car of the Year title. The recently-launched third-generation Superb saw off tough competition to take the top honour at the annual awards ceremony in Edinburgh.
