Milton Keynes, 3rd January 2014 – The honour goes to the Octavia Estate, which has won the ‘Best Estate’ category at the annual Car of the Year awards from respected consumer motoring website CarBuyer.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief for CarBuyer, commented: “When it comes to space per pound, the ŠKODA Octavia Estate offers sensational value for money. It’s hugely practical for loads of any size, while there’s plenty of space inside for five big people, too. But from the driver’s seat, you can forget about whatever’s behind you – it’s great to drive with the quality and efficiency you’d expect from a ŠKODA.”
With its unrivalled combination of space, usability, driver appeal, quality and value, the ŠKODA Octavia Estate is the highest-rated Estate on the CarBuyer website.
The CarBuyer awards are now in their third year and ŠKODA has a history of success. Including this latest award for the Octavia Estate, the Czech brand has won six categories. The awards are judged by the website’s expert test team, with the needs of real-world car buyers core to every rating.
Commenting Becky Whitmore, Product Manager for ŠKODA UK, said: “For the Octavia to be the highest rated Estate on the CarBuyer website is a tremendous achievement. It’s been on sale for less than a year, yet its mix of performance, environmental credentials and value for money is obviously striking a chord with customers.”
At the 2018 Paris Motor Show, ŠKODA will be presenting itself not just as sporty and sustainable, but also as a mobility services provider. The Czech brand is inviting the show’s visitors to a special digital experience from 2 to 14 October: At the ŠKODA stand in the User Experience corner, they can go through a fictional day as an avatar that they have created themselves and be guided through tailor-made digital offers.
With the VISION RS concept study ŠKODA offers a look ahead in Paris, presenting a future compact car and the next stage of development for the sporty RS family. A family that now includes its first ever SUV – the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS. The SCOUT and SPORTLINE variants expand the range for the ŠKODA KAROQ compact SUV.
