29/02/2016
ŠKODA UK has announced the winners of its annual Retailer of the Year (ROTY) awards.

Milton Keynes, 29 February 2016 - The awards recognise the achievements of the very best of ŠKODA‘s 128 UK retailers across eight different categories. Bickerton ŠKODA (Sheffield) and Rainworth ŠKODA (Mansfield) emerged victorious under the fleet category, in recognition of their outstanding performance in 2015.

Staff at each UK retailer were presented with their awards by Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK.

Henry Williams commented: “Both businesses have demonstrated outstanding results and really capture the essence of what has made ŠKODA such a success in the UK fleet market. I’d like to congratulate our whole retailer network on their hard work and effort in 2015 and look forward to a record-breaking 2016.”

Simon Beckett, Director of Bickerton and Rainworth ŠKODA, added: “Thanks to ŠKODA for this tremendous accolade. We have worked tirelessly to build on the strong reputation that we have locally, so it’s great to be rewarded for our efforts. Our team is dedicated to catering for all of the different requirements of business customers, and for this reason we have seen massive growth during recent years with ŠKODA fleet sales. I’d like to take the chance to thank the whole team here for their hard work.”

ŠKODA has taken home the double at the annual Fleet World Honours. The ŠKODA Superb won the accolade for Best Upper Medium Car for an impressive third consecutive year, and the recently launched seven-seat Kodiaq took the title of Best Large Family Car of the Year.
The ŠKODA Fabia is embarking on the next chapter of its success story with wide-ranging enhancements in terms of both design and technology. The popular small car made by the Czech carmaker will now boast even greater appeal thanks to restyled front and rear sections, the introduction of LED head and rear lights, as well as a refined interior. Lively and efficient 1.0 petrol engines, as well as additional assistance systems underline the sophisticated character of the ŠKODA Fabia. The revised model is being unveiled at the International Motor Show 2018 in Geneva. The market launch is in the second half of 2018.
ŠKODA has today announced a new partnership with leading UK artist Paloma Faith, in the brand’s next installment of its Driven by Something Different campaign.
ŠKODA has continued its winning streak at the What Car? Awards, driving off with two category wins and no fewer than five price point victories. Widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the automotive world, the 2018 What Car? Awards are among the most coveted in the industry. The new Octavia and Superb once again proved unbeatable in the eyes of the What Car? judging panel – with both models repeating their victories in their respective sectors.
ŠKODA UK has ended 2017 on a high, with 79,758 vehicles new car registrations. In the face of a declining overall UK market (down 5.65 per cent to 2.54 million cars), ŠKODA has grown its share of new car registrations by 0.16 per cent to a record 3.14 per cent overall.
ŠKODA has announced pricing and specifications for the Kodiaq SportLine – the next exciting addition to the brand’s multi-award-winning SUV range. Set to deliver a sporting edge to the line-up, the SportLine model will be offered with six different engine and transmission options to provide customers with the broadest possible choice.
