ŠKODA showers used car buyers with freebies this April

11/04/2016
ŠKODA is offering bargain hunters incredible value on its Approved Used vehicles this April, at a series of special events across the UK.

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 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.
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.
