Milton Keynes, 16th May 2014 – The honestjohn.co.uk awards are unique in that they’re not decided by expert judges. Instead they’re based on what the website’s users search for most. The fact ŠKODA has won two different awards proves how popular the brand is with real-world car buyers.
Dan Harrison, editor of honestjohn.co.uk, commented: “When it comes to choosing the perfect family car, few models can compete with the spaciousness and affordability that the ŠKODA Octavia offers.”
He added: “According to our users, the Octavia ticks all of the hatchback boxes, with high praise for its refinement and excellent range of efficient engines.”
Commenting on the ŠKODA Yeti’s victory in the ‘Crossover’ class, he said: “We're big fans of this car, it's one of the ones we recommend most to users. It's easy to recommend thanks to its compelling blend of family practicality, impressive engines and quirky style.”
The data used to make the awards is taken from Google Analytics. It calculates the number of page views each car review has had in the 12 months from April 2013 to April 2014. The site gets around 1.6 million visits every month, with the majority of these users viewing car reviews.
Emotion, dynamism and passion – ŠKODA combines all of these qualities with the ‘vRS’ initials. Even before its market launch, the Czech car manufacturer’s first high performance SUV, the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, proves that it can hold its own on the most challenging race track in the world. Racing driver Sabine Schmitz set the lap record for a seven-seater SUV at the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife in the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, highlighting the car’s performance qualities. The KODIAQ vRS extends the range of vRS models in the ŠKODA line up.
A detailed report from the record breaking-lap with the video and photo-gallery, as well as the article with interviews with Sabine Schmitz and František Drábek, can be found on ŠKODA Storyboard. The material is freely downloadable and useable in media.
