Whatever the weather: be prepared for anything with a ŠKODA Winter Health Check

Whatever the weather: be prepared for anything with a ŠKODA Winter Health Check

26/11/2015
As the mercury starts to drop, ŠKODA is offering customers motoring peace of mind with a stress-free Winter Health Check.

Milton Keynes, 26 November 2015 - ŠKODA wants to remind customers that checking the health of their vehicle becomes even more important in the winter months, as colder temperatures put extra strain on their vehicles.

For just £25, ŠKODA customers can book their car in at one of ŠKODA's participating retailers across the UK, where their car will undergo a seven-point check on some of the most essential parts of a vehicle which suffer during the winter months. No detail is too small for the fully-trained technicians as they check tyres, lights, brakes, wiper blades, air-conditioning, batteries and fluids.

The Winter Health Check also includes a complimentary antifreeze washer fluid top-up, full vehicle performance report and a free ŠKODA thermo mug. Available all winter, the service runs until 31 March 2016.

Warren Richards, Head of Service and Parts Operations at ŠKODA UK said, "With the nights drawing in and temperatures dropping, it’s more important than ever that vehicles are in tip-top condition. The ŠKODA Winter Health Check gives our customers peace of mind that their ŠKODA has been inspected by our fully trained ŠKODA technicians and is in good shape for the winter weather conditions."

A design sketch provides a first glimpse of the interior of the new ŠKODA SCALA. The new compact model will be the first ŠKODA to feature the latest infotainment generation with a free-standing display positioned high up, in the driver’s immediate field of vision. The optional Virtual Cockpit has the biggest display in its class. In addition to new interior trims and premium materials the SCALA also offers a generous amount of interior space, along with the largest luggage compartment in this segment, at 467 litres.
Following on from the first silhouette images, ŠKODA reveals the name of its new model – the ŠKODA SCALA. The name derives from the Latin word ‘SCALA’ which means ‘stairs’ and is a step forward for the Czech car manufacturer in the compact hatch segment. The SCALA is the first ŠKODA production model in Europe to carry the ŠKODA name in lettering across the centre of the tailgate and replaces the ŠKODA logo.
ŠKODA is introducing a new, fully programmable digital instrument panel to its KAROQ, OCTAVIA, SUPERB and KODIAQ ranges - giving the customers the option to replace traditional analogue dials and gauges with a high-definition electronic display for the first time.
ŠKODA AUTO continues on the road to success. From January to the end of September, the car manufacturer increased its worldwide deliveries to customers by 7.8% year-on-year to a new record of 939,100 vehicles. ŠKODA AUTO also achieved sales revenue of 12.6 billion euros, an increase of 2.1% and the best result in the company’s history. The operating profit of 1.1 billion euros remained high in the first three quarters, but was negatively influenced by high financial expenditures for new models, electromobility and higher personnel costs.
ŠKODA is releasing a silhouette picture to grant the public a first look at its future model for the popular compact class. It provides a first taste of the distinctive and dynamic design of this five-door model. This hatchback model translates the emotive design language of the study ŠKODA VISION RS, which recently attracted attention at the Paris Motor Show, into a production vehicle.

Baking fever has once again gripped the nation – and ŠKODA UK is no exception. The car manufacturer has partnered with celebrity baker and 2016 Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown to re-imagine a delicious, small-scale replica of the iconic Fabia cake. It comes more than a decade after ŠKODA’s advert, which saw a life-size version of the Fabia car made entirely out of cake.
