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.”

ŠKODA can look back on another record month: For the first time in its history, the Czech car manufacturer delivered more than 100,000 vehicles to customers in an April. With 107,100 vehicles, ŠKODA’s deliveries exceeded those of the same month last year by 10.1% (April 2017: 97,300 vehicles). In the world's largest sales market, China, the brand achieved an increase of 34%, and ŠKODA also achieved double digit growth in Eastern Europe and Russia. The SUV models KODIAQ (+164.4%) and KAROQ in particular made significant contributions to the success.
The ŠKODA Live Tour has racked up an impressive first year of results and the car manufacturer has announced that it will continue to explore new ways of using the technology. More than 2,000 online tours have been taken in the digital showroom, with three-quarters of users completely new customers to the brand.
ŠKODA has once again proved itself to be the brand to beat by dominating the 2018 DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50. The Czech brand was named as class winner in no fewer than four key categories and topped more sectors than any other manufacturer in the influential annual chart.
Motoring review site Honest John has named the ŠKODA KODIAQ its overall 2018 Car of the Year – adding another trophy to the Czech SUV’s remarkable collection. In addition to awarding the KODIAQ its highest honour, Honest John website visitors also named the SUPERB as its Family Car of the Year for the second year in succession.
ŠKODA AUTO continues its growth course. Never before has the Czech traditional brand achieved such a strong result in terms of sales revenue, deliveries and operating profit between January and March. The manufacturer delivered 316,700 vehicles worldwide (+ 11.7%). Operating profit increased by 5.3% to 437 million euros in the same period, while sales revenue increased by 4.9% to 4.5 billion euros.
ŠKODA owners can check the status of their car with just their voice thanks to the integration of ŠKODA Connect and Amazon’s Alexa virtual personal assistant. The technology works across all devices equipped with Alexa Voice Services and allows owners to interact with their vehicles on a completely new level.
