ŠKODA turns up the heat with Summer Travel Czech

19/07/2016
​With summer holidays in full swing, ŠKODA is offering customers motoring piece of mind with a stress-free Summer Health Check

Milton Keynes, 19 July 2016: 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 £30, ŠKODA customers can book their car in at one of ŠKODA's retailers across the UK for a Summer Health Check delivered by fully-trained technicians. No detail is too small for the team as they carry out a check on tyres, lights, brakes, battery, air-conditioning system and fluids.

The Summer Health Check also includes a complimentary ŠKODA picnic blanket worth £15, perfect for holiday picnics on the beach. And for those unsure what in-car items are required by law when driving abroad, ŠKODA’s free European driving guide has all the answers. Whether it’s a GB sticker, a warning triangle or fluorescent vests, all can be purchased from local ŠKODA retailers.

Warren Richards, Head of Service and Parts Operations at ŠKODA UK said, "Families will be packing up the car ready for holidays all over the UK in the coming week. Our Health Check gives our customers peace of mind that their vehicle is in perfect condition."

"Customers can rely on our fully-trained 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 has announced the new range line-up, specifications and RRP pricing for the facelifted FABIA. Order books for the updated supermini are open now, with first deliveries expected in September. With a new, all-petrol engine range, boosted equipment levels, new safety systems and an even sharper look, the facelifted FABIA is set to raise sector standards once again.
ŠKODA sent racing driver Sabine Schmitz into the 'Green Hell’ for a record-breaking lap in the new ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS, before the new SUV flagship is launched. In doing so, ŠKODA has demonstrated the seven-seater SUV’s extraordinary performance, and in a teaser video has revealed the preparations that went into camouflaged KODIAQ vRS’ successful record attempt on the Nürburgring’s legendary Nordschleife. The full video will be released on 14 June, and the ŠKODA KODIAQ vRS will make its official debut in October at the 2018 Paris Motor Show.
The ŠKODA Octavia has expanded its remarkable trophy haul by clinching yet another industry title. The brand's best-selling model in the UK eclipsed all its competitors to be named Auto Trader New Car of the Year 2018. And to make it a double delight for ŠKODA, the Superb was also named Auto Trader Family Car of the Year.
ŠKODA is already known for its ability to build fantastically strong, safe and reliable cars. But now, following three-years of planning, development and testing, ŠKODA has added to its award-winning range with the addition of a bullet and blast-resistant version of the SUPERB Estate.

ŠKODA can look back on another record month: For the first time in its history, the Czech car manufacturer delivered more than 100,000 vehicles to customers in an April. With 107,100 vehicles, ŠKODA’s deliveries exceeded those of the same month last year by 10.1% (April 2017: 97,300 vehicles). In the world's largest sales market, China, the brand achieved an increase of 34%, and ŠKODA also achieved double digit growth in Eastern Europe and Russia. The SUV models KODIAQ (+164.4%) and KAROQ in particular made significant contributions to the success.
The ŠKODA Live Tour has racked up an impressive first year of results and the car manufacturer has announced that it will continue to explore new ways of using the technology. More than 2,000 online tours have been taken in the digital showroom, with three-quarters of users completely new customers to the brand.
