ŠKODA completes remarkable title hat trick at 2016 What Car? awards

15/01/2016
ŠKODA has triumphed once again at the 2016 What Car? Awards thanks to three separate category wins and six price point victories, all of which ensures this is the most comprehensive haul enjoyed by the Czech manufacturer to date.

Milton Keynes, 13 January 2016 -​ ŠKODA is no stranger to What Car? silverware, with the Fabia being crowned overall Car of the Year 2015. This year the Fabia underlined its remarkable value, design and quality by retaining its Small Car title.

What Car? judges nominated the 1.2-litre 90PS SE model as its pick of the range, with What Car? Editorial director Jim Holder commenting: “The Fabia is a car that won’t leave those downsizing wanting; it’s well built, spacious, refined and is offered with a wide range of modern features and safety equipment. For the money, no other small car is as capable.”

Proving ŠKODA’s incredible longevity, the Octavia saw off some of the toughest competition in the business to scoop the 2016 Family Car title for the third time in a row. Despite the arrival of new contenders in this key category, the What Car? judges had no hesitation in choosing the Octavia, praising its practicality and high equipment levels.

Jim Holder said: “Interior space is exceptional, and includes a boot that’s easily big enough to cope with most people’s requirements. Factor in the excellent value the Octavia represents and that’s two very important boxes ticked for buyers.”

Completing ŠKODA’s hat-trick of category wins, the all-new Superb took top honours in the Estate car category. Selecting the 2.0 TDI SE Business as its favourite model, the What Car? panel found the new Superb’s combination of design, practicality and innovation impossible to resist.

“Raw capacity is no problem at all for the ŠKODA Superb Estate, which has one of the largest cabins available,” said Jim Holder. “Five adults will have no trouble getting comfortable for a long journey, and the boot is so big that none of them will have to pack light. It also gets neat touches such as a removable torch in the boot and Velcro dividers to stop stuff rolling around when you’re on the move. It really does feel like they’ve thought of everything that makes a great estate car.”

ŠKODA also performed exceptionally well in the What Car? price point categories – awards designed to highlight the best choices for buyers in a fixed price range. Once again, ŠKODA trounced the competition with six price point champions - more than any other manufacturer.

The Citigo (1.0 60PS SE 5dr) was named Best City Car in the under £10,000 price bracket, while the Fabia Estate (1.2 TSI SE) took victory in the under £18,000 price bracket in the Estate car category. The Fabia Hatch (1.2 TSI 90 SE) was also named Best Small Car in the £12,000-£15,000 bracket.

Further up the price and size scale, the Octavia Hatch (1.2 TSI 110 SE) was selected as the Best Family Car in the £16,000-£19,000 bracket, the Superb Hatch (2.0 TDI 150 SE Business) took top honours in the Compact Executive Car sector (under £25,000) while the Superb Estate (2.0 TSI 150 SE Business) completed ŠKODA’s haul with victory in the £18,000-£25,000 price bracket.

Commenting on ŠKODA’s exceptional performance, UK Brand Director Duncan Movassaghi said: “This has been a remarkable night for ŠKODA, and I’m delighted that our cars – from the smallest to the largest – have been recognised by What Car? These awards mean a great deal to everyone at ŠKODA, and we’re thrilled to add them to our ever-expanding collection of industry accolades.”

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.

ŠKODA is offering a first glimpse of the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS high-performance SUV by releasing two design sketches. Several accents in gloss black accentuate the dynamic appearance of the new, top-of-the-range SUV. It’s the first time the vRS initials, which are exclusively reserved for ŠKODA’s sportiest models, have been seen on an SUV. The emotive design comes alive thanks to the interplay of elegant lines, sporty contours and the typical robust nature of an SUV. The 240 PS ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS will make its debut at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October.
ŠKODA is continuing to whet appetites for the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS. Ahead of the car’s official world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October, the Czech manufacturer is releasing yet more photographs of its features. The first SUV in the portfolio of ŠKODA vRS models impresses not only with its 240 PS diesel engine, but also with its sporty and elegant design, highlights in high-gloss black and 20-inch Xtreme alloy wheels.
Global demand for ŠKODA models continues to rise: In August, the Czech brand delivered 91,800 vehicles to customers, exceeding the previous year's result by 6.6% (August 2017: 86,100 vehicles). ŠKODA achieved particularly high growth rates in Russia (+33.5%) and China (+11.5%). Once again, the company also grew in Europe compared to the same period last year (+6.0%). The ŠKODA KAROQ, comprehensively modernised FABIA and the CITIGO achieved double-digit increases. The KODIAQ RS, KAROQ SCOUT and KAROQ SPORTLINE as well as the VISION RS concept study are celebrating their world premieres in Paris.
ŠKODA is revealing several details about its new KODIAQ RS ahead of the high-performance SUV’s official world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October. In a video, ŠKODA is offering a preview of the car’s full-LED headlights, the virtual cockpit and the new Dynamic Sound Boost function, which accentuates the dynamic character of the ŠKODA KODIAQ RS with a meaty and even sportier sound.
The ŠKODA VISION RS gives an outlook on the future of the ŠKODA RS models. The design sketches offer a first impression of the concept study’s interior before the official world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in October. In addition, a video shows the innovative interior – with vegan and sustainably produced materials – taking shape in a Prague design studio.
