Diesel do nicely - Superb Estate loads up with 2017 DieselCar Used Estate Car title

20/01/2017
​Proving that it’s not just brand new ŠKODAs capable of bringing home the silverware, the second-generation Superb has just been named Best Used Estate Car 2017 by Diesel Car magazine.

Milton Keynes, 20 January 2017: The title’s judging panel examined second-hand examples of every car sold in UK showrooms before drawing up a shortlist of 16 vehicles in eight key categories. Mainstream and premium models were selected for each category before a final judgment was made. As in previous years, the panel looked for value for money, practicality and low running costs - and found that the second-generation Superb was unrivalled in every key area.

Announcing the 2017 winners, Ian Robertson, DieselCar Editor and Publisher said: “The Superb is about as effective as it gets. It has a an utterly gigantic 633-litre boot and there’s more legroom than most limousines. The ŠKODA delivers plenty of kit for your money and great build quality. Prices from £7,000 make it our used estate car of the year.”

Like its multi-award-winning successor, the second generation Superb Estate remains one of the best all-rounders on the used car market. Launched in 2010, it set new standards for practicality in the estate sector – regularly scooping awards for its spaciousness, ease of use and value for money. Indeed, during its five-year production run, it won more than 20 key UK motor industry awards - including Auto Express Estate Car of the Year on three occasions.

A range of second-generation Superb models, along with a vast range of other ŠKODA models are available through ŠKODA’s Approved Used Car network. All Approved Used ŠKODA models are supplied with 12 months roadside assistance, a multi-point inspection check, 12 months Approved Used warranty on cars up to six years old/72,000 miles and a 30-day/1000 mile exchange.

Scala
Following on from the first silhouette images, ŠKODA reveals the name of its new model – the ŠKODA SCALA. The name derives from the Latin word ‘SCALA’ which means ‘stairs’ and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the ŠKODA name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the ŠKODA logo.
ŠKODA dials into the future with new Virtual Cockpit option
ŠKODA is introducing a new, fully programmable digital instrument panel to its KAROQ, OCTAVIA, SUPERB and KODIAQ ranges - giving the customers the option to replace traditional analogue dials and gauges with a high-definition electronic display for the first time.
ŠKODA AUTO continues on the road to success. From January to the end of September, the car manufacturer increased its worldwide deliveries to customers by 7.8% year-on-year to a new record of 939,100 vehicles. ŠKODA AUTO also achieved sales revenue of 12.6 billion euros, an increase of 2.1% and the best result in the company’s history. The operating profit of 1.1 billion euros remained high in the first three quarters, but was negatively influenced by high financial expenditures for new models, electromobility and higher personnel costs.
ŠKODA is releasing a silhouette picture to grant the public a first look at its future model for the popular compact class. It provides a first taste of the distinctive and dynamic design of this five-door model. This hatchback model translates the emotive design language of the study ŠKODA VISION RS, which recently attracted attention at the Paris Motor Show, into a production vehicle.

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with celebrity baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.

Good things come in small packages, and according to the experts at What Car?, there are no finer compact used car options than the ŠKODA CITIGO and FABIA. Both have been awarded top honours at the What Car? Used Car Awards 2019 – seeing off tough competition in the process.
