Value-packed ŠKODA Citigo wins top Sunday Times award

21/10/2013
The ŠKODA Citigo has just added to its trophy cabinet after being named Best City Car in the annual Sunday Times Top 100 Cars.

Milton Keynes, 21st October 2013 - The influential guide is drawn up each year by The Sunday Times Driving editorial team, who rate each car for value, performance and entertainment.

In awarding the Citigo with the City Car award, The Sunday Times judges commented, “We chose the ŠKODA because we judge it to be the best value, a more important consideration in this class than any other. It’s fun to angle around city streets, and its lively engine heightens the entertainment.”

Since its launch in 2012, the Citigo has collected a raft of industry titles, including Auto Express Car of the Year and Best City Car by What Car?

Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for ŠKODA UK, said: “We’re delighted that The Sunday Times has bestowed its top City Car honour on the Citigo. It’s a car that perfectly embodies ŠKODA’s philosophy of delivering high quality products with attractive designs, at extremely affordable prices.”

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.
