ŠKODA to the four! Kodiaq, Superb and Octavia share a quartet of awards as 2018 DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50 is revealed

09/05/2018
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.

Milton Keynes, 9 May 2018: Now in its third year, the DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50 is widely regarded as a definitive guide to the best cars on the market. The chart is compiled from data and feedback from a team of writers who have tested more than 175 cars during the past year. All have been road tested in the UK, and judged against the expectations and demands of their target market.

The KODIAQ added to its incredible list of industry titles by topping the Large SUV category - eclipsing some of the biggest names in the sector in the process. Explaining the KODIAQ’s appeal, Ian Robertson, Editor and Publisher DieselCar & EcoCar Magazine said: “Despite undercutting key rivals, the big ŠKODA offers more performance and practicality at a lower price and with smaller running costs. This five and seven-seater drives brilliantly, comes with the option of advanced four-wheel drive to keep you going and is filled to the roof rails with clever features like pop-out door protectors.”

Not to be outdone, the SUPERB grabbed two awards; Best Large Car and Best Large Estate. As with the KODIAQ, the judging panel loved the SUPERB’s value and practicality. “The pricing of this limousine-like model defies belief, with so much room in the back you might feel tempted to change your wardrobe and don a smart black suit.” said Ian Robertson. “Its size, torquey engines and smooth manual or automatic gearboxes make the SUPERB a superlative tow car, and it’s in its element on the motorway. If you aren’t an SUV enthusiast, the SUPERB is a great antidote and yet still hugely spacious.”

Completing a remarkable haul for ŠKODA, the OCTAVIA was named Best Medium Estate, marking a lock-out of the large Estate market for the brand. Substantially updated last year, the OCTAVIA wowed the judges with its strength in depth. Explaining why it took top honours Ian Robertson said: “Making up around a third of ŠKODA sales, the OCTAVIA is a critical model for the Czech brand, so it’s a good job the latest update has been such a success. The estate has a class-leading boot and the vRS performance version is powerful and grippy without attracting any unwanted attention. No wonder OCTAVIA owners are so happy.”

Thanks to the new Karoq’s 17th place finish, no fewer than five ŠKODA models featured in the Top 50 - a remarkable achievement and testament to the value for money delivered by the brand’s efficient diesel models.

These latest Diesel Car and EcoCar awards add to a vast collection of silverware already accumulated by the KODIAQ, SUPERB and OCTAVIA. The former has taken more than 10 top industry titles since its launch last March, including TopGear Magazine Family SUV of the Year, Auto Express Best Large SUV and What Car? Best Large SUV. The SUPERB, meanwhile, has racked up more than 20 titles including Best Car awards from What Car?, Auto Express, The Telegraph and The Sunday Times, while the OCTAVIA has now won eight titles in the last 12 months alone.

The ŠKODA VISION RS gives an outlook on the future of the ŠKODA RS models. The design sketches offer a first impression of the concept study’s interior before the official world premiere at the Paris Motor Show in October. In addition, a video shows the innovative interior – with vegan and sustainably produced materials – taking shape in a Prague design studio.
With the debut of the ŠKODA VISION RS concept at the 2018 Paris Motor Show ŠKODA will provide a first glimpse of a future compact car while ringing in the next design phase for its sporting RS model range. Ahead of the world premiere in October, the Czech brand is releasing design sketches aimed at conveying a first impression of this dynamic concept car. In addition, a video illustrates how the ŠKODA VISION RS is taking shape in the design department headed by lead designer Oliver Stefani.
The new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS will make its world premiere at the 2018 Paris Motor Show in October. The Czech brand has released the first two official pictures, offering a sneak preview of the first SUV in its vRS portfolio and a glance at the new vRS logo. The seven seat KODIAQ vRS is powered by a 239-PS TDI biturbo engine - the most powerful production diesel engine in ŠKODA’s history.
ŠKODA’s one millionth sports utility vehicle (SUV) has rolled off the production line. The milestone vehicle is a ŠKODA KAROQ with a metallic Emerald Green finish. The Czech manufacturer’s success story in the SUV segment began in 2009 with the launch of the ŠKODA YETI. Today, the KODIAQ and KAROQ SUV model lines are two of the most important drivers of growth for the company, and the SUV campaign is an integral part of the 2025 Strategy. Of the one million SUVs produced by ŠKODA to date, more than 100,000 have found homes with UK customers.
ŠKODA’s multi-award-winning FABIA range is set to confirm its status as the best value supermini on the market with the announcement that OTR prices for the fully updated model will start from just £12,840. The revised FABIA is set to hit the UK next month with a new all-petrol line-up, hatch and estate body styles and five trim level options – including Monte Carlo and Colour Edition.
ŠKODA AUTO remains on the course for success in the first half of 2018. The carmaker increased sales revenue by 5.1% to € 9.161 billion, for the first time surpassing the €9 billion mark in the first six months of the year. Operating profit of 821 million euros remains at a high level. Deliveries to customers increased by 11.6% from January to June this year to a new record of 652,700 vehicles.
