New Retailer Boosts Škoda Offering in Bucks 

17/02/2011
Hughes Škoda in Aylesbury, previously an established approved repairer, has boosted its Škoda offering in the area after launching their new retailer in the town.

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’.

Hughes Škoda is located on Bicester Road in Aylesbury, to test drive any of the full range of Škoda cars, call 01296 319 603.

The Czech car makers launched the ŠKODA Octavia RS (known in the UK as Octavia vRS) as the first RS model of the new era in 2000. Then came the ŠKODA Fabia RS (also known in the UK as Fabia vRS) in 2003. The new ŠKODA Octavia RS has been the current star of the ŠKODA RS racers for the past year – it is the fastest and most powerful Octavia of all time. ​
