Summertime is fine...with a ŠKODA Summer Health Check

17/08/2015
With summer holidays in full swing, ŠKODA is offering customers motoring peace of mind this August with a stress-free Summer Health Check.

Milton Keynes, 17 August 2015 - As thousands of families pack up the car for every possible eventuality this summer ŠKODA wants to remind customers that checking the health of their vehicle is just as important as remembering to charge the iPads.

For just £25, ŠKODA customers can book their car in at one of ŠKODA's 134 retailers across the UK for a Summer Health Check where their beloved car will undergo an Express Visual Check (EVC), delivered by fully-trained technicians. No detail is too small for the team as they carry out a seven-point check on tyres, lights, brakes, wiper blades, air-conditioning, batteries and fluids.

The Summer Health Check also includes a complimentary oil and washer fluid top up, alternator check, air-conditioning performance check and a free ŠKODA picnic blanket worth £15. Customers will also be entered into a draw to win one of ten £100 National Trust Gift Cards. The offer ends on 30 September 2015.

Warren Richards, Head of Service and Parts Operations at ŠKODA UK said, "With the summer holidays in full swing, families will be packing up the car ready for holidays all over the UK. The ŠKODA Summer Health Check gives our customers peace of mind that their vehicle is in perfect condition."

"Customers can rely on our fully-trained ŠKODA technicians to deliver an outstanding service and a hassle-free experience. Our technicians focus on the areas most likely to have suffered wear and tear in between recommended service intervals such as brakes and tyres, which can play on motorists' mind during long journeys.”

A design sketch provides a first glimpse of the interior of the new ŠKODA SCALA. The new compact model will be the first ŠKODA to feature the latest infotainment generation with a free-standing display positioned high up, in the driver’s immediate field of vision. The optional Virtual Cockpit has the biggest display in its class. In addition to new interior trims and premium materials the SCALA also offers a generous amount of interior space, along with the largest luggage compartment in this segment, at 467 litres.
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 introducing a new, fully programmable digital instrument panel to its KAROQ, OCTAVIA, SUPERB and KODIAQ ranges - giving the customers the option to replace traditional analogue dials and gauges with a high-definition electronic display for the first time.
ŠKODA AUTO continues on the road to success. From January to the end of September, the car manufacturer increased its worldwide deliveries to customers by 7.8% year-on-year to a new record of 939,100 vehicles. ŠKODA AUTO also achieved sales revenue of 12.6 billion euros, an increase of 2.1% and the best result in the company’s history. The operating profit of 1.1 billion euros remained high in the first three quarters, but was negatively influenced by high financial expenditures for new models, electromobility and higher personnel costs.
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.
