Milton Keynes, 9 January: The three-year deal will see the former Tour de France winner and Britain’s most decorated Olympian appear in ŠKODA‘s new UK brand campaign which will be launched across TV, online, print and cinema in February.
As part of the deal, ŠKODA UK will supply Wiggins with a Superb Estate SportLine 2.0 TSI 280PS DSG.
ŠKODA started life as a bicycle company in 1895. Since then the brand‘s passion for two wheels has never wavered. Cycling has remained important to ŠKODA since that day and the brand has honoured that heritage ever since. Today, ŠKODA supports the sport through multiple event sponsorships including the Tour de France, Tour of Britain, The Women's Tour, and as vehicle partner to RideLondon.
The new Kodiaq, Superb and Octavia proved an unbeatable trio as ŠKODA took home three category wins at the 2017 Auto Express New Car Awards and a special award for its Reconnection advertising campaign. The awards were made at the title’s annual ceremony in central London, where the judging panel praised ŠKODA’s winning models for their quality, practicality and value for money.
It’s the vRS that packs the mightiest punch ever: the new Octavia vRS 245 has just touched down in the UK. Delivering 245PS and 370Nm of torque, the new sporting flagship of the range launches with an equally headline-grabbing price that starts from £27,595.
ŠKODA customers are the happiest car owners in Britain, according to the UK's largest independent automotive customer satisfaction survey, Driver Power. The brand secured an incredible gold rush of awards in the Driver Power 2017 New Car Survey with the Superb and Yeti proving to be the star performers, taking first and second place in the overall Car of the Year ranking. The duo also took top honours in their respective segment categories, outscoring the competition in the survey's individual vehicle attribute sections. In total, ŠKODA was awarded 10 Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
