ŠKODA leaves competitors between Karoq and a hard place with two wins in another Superb performance at Fleet News Awards

15/03/2018
ŠKODA continues to go from strength to strength in the fleet arena with a duo of awards added to the trophy cabinet last night. The ŠKODA Superb retained its title of Best Upper Medium Car for the third-year running whilst new-comer, the Karoq, entered the fleet sector in style picking up the title of Best Mid-size SUV.

Milton Keynes, 15 March 2018: The Fleet News Awards, now in its 30th year – seen as the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet awards’ calendar – recognises class-leading businesses, cars and individuals within the sector.

ŠKODA continued its winning ways on the 2018 awards night, after the ŠKODA Superb was named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ by the industry experts for the third year running. In one of the most competitive categories, the Superb stood out for its excellent value-for-money, technology, comfort and desirability.

The all-new ŠKODA Karoq won its first UK award, scooping the highly-desired accolade ‘Best Mid-size SUV’. From small businesses to corporate fleets, the Karoq offers a host of technology and driver assistance systems at their fingertips. The latest addition to the model line-up sets the standard for driver connectivity with features that include Amundsen satellite navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen display with European mapping, voice control and integrated Wi-Fi.

Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK, commented “The Superb is a beautifully designed vehicle that offers luxury driving for fleets at excellent value that can’t be beaten and we are delighted that it has picked up this award for the second year running.

“These awards showcase the strength of our current model line-up and the competitive package that we offer business customers.”

The ŠKODA Superb Estate SE Tech 2.0 TDI 150PS offers whole-life cost advantages and competitive servicing costs and is available with a BIK rate of 24% and P11D of £25,230. The all-new ŠKODA Karoq has been launched with an SE Tech trim exclusively designed for fleets to offer greater value for money: the SE Tech 1.5 TSI 150PS DSG has a P11D of £23,310 and a BIK rate of 24%.

Scala
Following on from the first silhouette images, ŠKODA reveals the name of its new model – the ŠKODA SCALA. The name derives from the Latin word ‘SCALA’ which means ‘stairs’ and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the ŠKODA name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the ŠKODA logo.
ŠKODA is releasing a silhouette picture to grant the public a first look at its future model for the popular compact class. It provides a first taste of the distinctive and dynamic design of this five-door model. This hatchback model translates the emotive design language of the study ŠKODA VISION RS, which recently attracted attention at the Paris Motor Show, into a production vehicle.

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with celebrity baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.

Good things come in small packages, and according to the experts at What Car?, there are no finer compact used car options than the ŠKODA CITIGO and FABIA. Both have been awarded top honours at the What Car? Used Car Awards 2019 – seeing off tough competition in the process.
With the ŠKODA VISION RS, the Czech brand combines its sporting tradition with a sustainable future. At the Paris Motor Show 2018 in October, the striking concept study – with its dynamic design language and efficient plug-in hybrid drive – will provide the first insights into the next evolutionary stage of ŠKODA’s sporty RS models and the design of a future compact vehicle. ŠKODA also demonstrates a high level of environmental awareness with the use of sustainably produced Vegan materials.
The ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS is the Czech brand’s new, sporty, top-of-the-range model. In a week’s time, the high-performance SUV will celebrate its world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. The latest addition to the Czech brand’s vRS family combines a generous and flexible space as well as ŠKODA-typical practicality with a sporty interior.
