Milton Keynes, 30 June 2015 – The new Superb has only just become available to order in the UK, yet it has already been recognised for its impressive blend of sharp-edged styling, high equipment levels, huge interior space and great value, having been named Family Car of the Year at the Auto Express Awards in London.
Commenting on the award, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief for Auto Express said: “The Superb now truly lives up to its name. It offers the best combination of all the elements families look for in a car: practicality, low running costs, great technology and loads of space, but what seals the deal is that it is now a seriously stylish car that you’ll be proud to have parked on your drive.”
The Citigo has been a firm favourite with Auto Express since its launch, having won the coveted Car of the Year title in 2012. Despite tough opposition in what has become a fiercely competitive sector, the judges felt that the Citigo still stands head and shoulders above its rivals. No matter how hard rivals have tried, they’ve failed to knock the ŠKODA off the top spot.
Steve Fowler said: “The Citigo continues to set a very high benchmark in the city car class. With its compact dimensions, lively three-cylinder engine and great build quality, it remains a hugely appealing proposition for buyers.”
Collecting the awards for ŠKODA, Martin Barrow-Starkey, Head of Sales Operations, added: “These awards recognise the breadth of the amazing product range we have at ŠKODA, from the Citigo to the Superb. We’re delighted that Auto Express continues to regard the Citigo as the best in its class, and the first win for the Superb in the UK is especially important to us - this means a great deal to everyone at the brand.”
More details of these award-winning ŠKODA models can be found in a special awards edition of Auto Express on sale from 1 July. The Superb is available to order now, with first deliveries in September.
The new Kodiaq, Superb and Octavia proved an unbeatable trio as ŠKODA took home three category wins at the 2017 Auto Express New Car Awards and a special award for its Reconnection advertising campaign. The awards were made at the title’s annual ceremony in central London, where the judging panel praised ŠKODA’s winning models for their quality, practicality and value for money.
It’s the vRS that packs the mightiest punch ever: the new Octavia vRS 245 has just touched down in the UK. Delivering 245PS and 370Nm of torque, the new sporting flagship of the range launches with an equally headline-grabbing price that starts from £27,595.
ŠKODA customers are the happiest car owners in Britain, according to the UK's largest independent automotive customer satisfaction survey, Driver Power. The brand secured an incredible gold rush of awards in the Driver Power 2017 New Car Survey with the Superb and Yeti proving to be the star performers, taking first and second place in the overall Car of the Year ranking. The duo also took top honours in their respective segment categories, outscoring the competition in the survey's individual vehicle attribute sections. In total, ŠKODA was awarded 10 Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
