New ŠKODA Superb loads up with Scottish Estate Car of the Year award

30/11/2015
The ŠKODA Superb Estate has triumphed once again at the annual Scottish Car of the Year awards, driving off with the 2015 Estate Car of the Year title. The recently-launched third-generation Superb saw off tough competition to take the top honour at the annual awards ceremony in Edinburgh.

Milton Keynes, 30 November 2015: The Superb’s 2015 award comes five years after its predecessor won the same prestigious title. The judging panel, which comprises members of the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers (ASMW), highlighted the new Superb’s refinement, build quality and space and praised its exceptional practicality.

Commenting on the award, Alastair Suttie, Chairman of the ASMW, said: “The Superb has always been one of the roomiest vehicles you can buy. This third-generation version has more space than you can shake a stick at and gives executive cars from the class above a run for their money when it comes to comfort and refinement. The Superb is quite simply superb.”

Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for ŠKODA UK, added: “We’re thrilled that the Superb’s design excellence, incredible space and comfort have been recognised by the Scottish Car of the Year jurors. This is a highly valued award that means a great deal to everyone at ŠKODA - both here in the UK and with our colleagues in the Czech Republic.”

The new Superb is carrying on where its predecessor left off, having already won the Auto Express Family Car of the Year title earlier this year. The second generation model won more than 25 industry awards during its production run.

The new Superb is available in hatchback and estate form and is priced from £18,640. Further information can be found at www.skoda.co.uk/new-superb.

​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.
​ŠKODA has kicked off 2017 with another remarkable haul of titles at the annual What Car? Awards. The all-new Kodiaq, Fabia Hatchback and Superb Estate all won their categories at the ceremony widely regarded as the 'Oscars' of the automotive world.
​An even more striking design, new equipment and state-of-the-art technology for assistance, infotainment and connectivity – the ŠKODA Octavia presents its new face for the first time. The comprehensive upgrade has been applied to the hatchback as well as the Estate.
​ŠKODA UK and XIX Entertainment have today announced a long-term strategic partnership with Sir Bradley Wiggins.
​ŠKODA is celebrating a record-breaking 2016 with best ever annual new car registrations in the UK.  A total of 80,372 cars were registered – up 7.6% on 2015 (74,692), giving the brand a total UK market share of 2.98% (2.84% in 2015). Every vehicle in the brand's multi award-winning model range played its part in the success.
​Just weeks after introducing the extensively modernised ŠKODA OCTAVIA, the Czech automobile manufacturer presents the top model in the series – the ŠKODA OCTAVIA vRS. The new front section, modified rear and sporty interior highlight its dynamic character. The upgraded ŠKODA OCTAVIA vRS is available as a hatchback and estate. Both body styles have two four-cylinder engines to choose from. While the 2.0 TDI diesel engine has the same 135 kW (184 hp) output as previously, the performance of the 2.0 TSI petrol engine has increased by 7 kW (10 hp) to 169 kW (230 hp), making it the most powerful and fastest series-production model in the history of the ŠKODA OCTAVIA. New premium technologies supporting infotainment, connectivity and driver assistance systems emphasise the exceptional position of the compact sports car in its segment.
