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.”

ŠKODA UK has announced the winners of its annual Retailer of the Year (ROTY) awards, held this year in Budapest.

ŠKODA's appearance at the Shanghai Motor Show 2017 (19 – 28 April) is characterized by electric change: With the Vision E study, the company provides its first brand-specific outlook on the future of individual mobility. The emotionally designed five-door SUV coupé can travel up to 500 kilometres on purely electric power and meets the level 3 requirements for autonomous driving. ŠKODA is intensively pursuing the electrification of its model range, and will be offering five purely electric models in various segments by 2025.

ŠKODA DESIGN emphasises its commitment to a distinct design identity with continuous development of its design language. Harmonious proportions, clean-cut lines, bold contours and crystalline features are combined to create a design that places a focus on precision and clarity. One of the sources of inspiration for ŠKODA's designers is Czech crystal glass art, which is characterised by outstanding craftsmanship. This yields an expressive, emotionally charged design which harmoniously combines aesthetics and functionality.

ŠKODA has announced that ordering for the new Octavia vRS and Scout ranges will open on 1 March, with prices starting from £25,130 OTR. 

Less cylinder capacity, more power. In the ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA ESTATE, a 1.0 TSI engine with three cylinders and four valves is replacing the 1.2-litre engine with four cylinders that has been used to date. The new engine offers more power. The power output of the ŠKODA FABIA 1.0 TSI is 95 PS, while the output of the more powerful version is at 110 PS but offers an improved torque figure of 200 Nm (previously 175 Nm). Downsizing offers another advantage: the engine’s fuel consumption has been reduced by up to six per cent. One reason for this is the three-cylinder engine concept with a reduced weight of the free inertial forces and a more efficient oil pump. The revised ŠKODA FABIA and ŠKODA FABIA ESTATE will be introduced to the public for the first time at the Geneva International Motor Show (7-19 March 2017).

ŠKODA has delivered its two-millionth vehicle in China. The milestone vehicle is a ŠKODA SUPERB with a 1.4 TSI engine in Polar White. Werner Eichhorn, ŠKODA Board Member for Sales and Marketing, handed over the brand's flagship to customer Li Hongan in Shanghai. China is the largest single market for the long-established Czech brand. In 2017, ŠKODA is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its entry into the Chinese market.
