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 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.
Motoring review site Honest John has named the ŠKODA KODIAQ its overall 2018 Car of the Year – adding another trophy to the Czech SUV’s remarkable collection. In addition to awarding the KODIAQ its highest honour, Honest John website visitors also named the SUPERB as its Family Car of the Year for the second year in succession.

Operating profit increased by 5.3% to 437 million euros in the same period, while sales revenue increased by 4.9% to 4.5 billion euros.
