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
ŠKODA's appearance at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017 (19 – 28 April) is characterized by electric change: With the Vision E study, the company provides its first brand-specific outlook on the future of individual mobility. The emotionally designed five-door SUV coupé can travel up to 500 kilometres on purely electric power and meets the level 3 requirements for autonomous driving. ŠKODA is intensively pursuing the electrification of its model range, and will be offering five purely electric models in various segments by 2025.
ŠKODA DESIGN emphasises its commitment to a distinct design identity with continuous development of its design language. Harmonious proportions, clean-cut lines, bold contours and crystalline features are combined to create a design that places a focus on precision and clarity. One of the sources of inspiration for ŠKODA's designers is Czech crystal glass art, which is characterised by outstanding craftsmanship. This yields an expressive, emotionally charged design which harmoniously combines aesthetics and functionality.
ŠKODA has announced that ordering for the new
Octavia vRS and Scout ranges will open on 1 March, with prices starting from £25,130
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).
ŠKODA has delivered its two-millionth vehicle in China. The milestone vehicle is a ŠKODA SUPERB with a 1.4 TSI engine in Polar White. Werner Eichhorn, ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing, handed over the brand's flagship to customer Li Hongan in Shanghai. China is the largest single market for the long-established Czech brand. In 2017, ŠKODA is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its entry into the Chinese market.
ŠKODA is enhancing the elegant and affordable family favourites ŠKODA RAPID and ŠKODA RAPID SPACEBACK with numerous innovations. New lighting systems ensure even greater safety. Passengers are 'always online' thanks to an available WLAN hotspot. The new programme includes two efficient 1.0-TSI engines with three cylinders. The upgraded models will be presented to the public for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show (7 – 19 March, 2017).
