The most spacious and co mfortable ŠKODA yet
Having been working with Škoda in Aylesbury as a repairer since May 2009, the team at Hughes have a wealth of experience working with the brand and already run one successful Škoda retailer and repairer based at Farnham Common.
Located on Bicester Road, the retailer will be offering the full range of award-winning Škoda models, including the brand new Fabia vRS and the Yeti, recently named Auto Express Car of the Year 2010, in addition to full servicing for all Škodas, as well as a selection of used cars.
Geoff Williams, Retailer Principal at Hughes, comments: “The Škoda brand is synonymous with high standards, good quality and excellent customer satisfaction, which we have always provided as an approved repairer. Our experience via our sister site in Farnham Common and our existing business in Aylesbury will allow us to utilise our strengths and knowledge of the industry to provide new and used cars to the region’s motorists.
The current Škoda range consists of five models: the Fabia super-mini, the innovative Roomster MPV, the multi-purpose Octavia, the Yeti crossover and the luxurious Superb. The most recent addition to the range was the hotly anticipated return of the Fabia vRS, the fast-paced derivative of the Fabia hatch.
Unveiled in July 2010 the Fabia vRS has become an icon of the Škoda range and is the fastest production Fabia ever built. The new model builds on its predecessor’s reputation for high performance, low running costs and remarkable value for money and includes a three-spoke multi-function leather sports steering wheel with paddles, seven speed DSG (Direct Shift Gearbox) transmission as standard and 1.4 litre TSI turbo and supercharged engine, combined with the car’s sporty design.
2010 has been a record breaking year so far for Škoda, most recently the manufacturer was honoured at the Auto Express awards scooping five awards at the prestigious event. The awards included ‘Car of the Year 2010’ and ‘Best Crossover’ for the Yeti, ‘Best Family Car’ for the Superb hatch and ‘Best Estate Car’ for the Superb Estate. Škoda was also awarded the sought-after ‘Driver Power Award’.

cylinder capacity, more power. In the ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA ESTATE, a 1.0
TSI engine with three cylinders and four valves is replacing the 1.2-litre
engine with four cylinders that has been used to date. The new engine offers more
power. The power output of the ŠKODA FABIA 1.0 TSI is 95 PS, while the output
of the more powerful version is at 110 PS but offers an improved torque figure of
200 Nm (previously 175 Nm). Downsizing offers another advantage: the engine’s
fuel consumption has been reduced by up to six per cent. One reason for this is
the three-cylinder engine concept with a reduced weight of the free inertial
forces and a more efficient oil pump. The revised ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA
ESTATE will be introduced to the public for the first time at the Geneva
International Motor Show (7-19 March 2017).
