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.

All-new ŠKODA KAROQ - Thumb

ŠKODA Live Tour instantly connects the customer to a ŠKODA Product Host by an internet video link, who takes them into the  Live Tour showroom and introduces the ŠKODA models.

 

ŠKODA’s new compact SUV is called the KAROQ. The name and its spelling originate from the language of the Alutiiq, an indigenous tribe who live on an island off the southern coast of Alaska. For the name of the new compact SUV, ŠKODA has drawn on the spelling of the ŠKODA KODIAQ and in doing so, has created a consistent nomenclature for the brand’s current and future SUV models. The ŠKODA KAROQ will be introduced to the public for the first time in Stockholm on 18 May and represents a further milestone in ŠKODA’s SUV campaign.
