Milton Keynes, 11 April 2016 - The Approved Used Car Event – taking place at participating retailers between the 15th and 18th April – sees all eligible models come with £500 worth of fuel and the first two services absolutely free. This is on top of the offer of one year’s free warranty and one year’s free roadside assistance, which comes as standard on all Approved Used ŠKODAs.
The offer is part of a focus to give buyers exceptional used vehicles and outstanding value, with an unparalleled showroom experience.
Nick O’Neill, Used Car Manager at ŠKODA UK, commented: “We know that most people who own a ŠKODA fall head-over-heels in love with it, because of the blend of style, performance and practicality on offer. Through our Approved Used Car Event, we’re hoping to give more people the opportunity to own one, all for a very affordable price.
“Used cars are a big focus for us this year – whilst the car market in general is synonymous with innovation, the second-hand sector often gets overlooked. Not by ŠKODA: there are many exciting developments coming up which will raise eyebrows. Watch this space.”

ŠKODA’s new compact SUV is called the KAROQ. The name and its spelling originate from the language of the Alutiiq, an indigenous tribe who live on an island off the southern coast of Alaska. For the name of the new compact SUV, ŠKODA has drawn on the spelling of the ŠKODA KODIAQ and in doing so, has created a consistent nomenclature for the brand’s current and future SUV models. The ŠKODA KAROQ will be introduced to the public for the first time in Stockholm on 18 May and represents a further milestone in ŠKODA’s SUV campaign.
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.
