Double delight for ŠKODA at What Car? awards

ŠKODA continued its winning streak at the What Car? Awards, driving off with two category wins and no fewer than five price point victories. Widely regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the automotive world, the magazine’s awards are among the most coveted in the industry.

The new OCTAVIA and SUPERB once again wowed the What Car? judging panel – with both models defending their crowns in their respective sectors.

OCTAVIA retained its Best Family Car title - the model’s third category triumph in five years – a remarkable achievement given the number of cars competing in the sector. What Car? Editor Steve Huntingford said: “The OCTAVIA has long been the car that we'd recommend to people looking for comfort and space from their family hatchback. But an update last year has made it better than ever. Our favoured 1.5-litre petrol engine is both strong and frugal, the suspension is perfectly judged for UK roads and the OCTAVIA can take more luggage than most estate cars.”

The SUPERB Estate proved unbeatable once again, and was named Best Estate Car 2018 for the third year in a row. Huntingford said: “The SUPERB Estate is classy, comfortable and so spacious that we struggle to think of another car that offers quite so much room inside. In addition, it’s exceptionally good value, offering all the quality and equipment of far more expensive cars. In short, it excels in every area a good estate car should.”

As well as the two category awards, What Car? also recognised ŠKODA as price point winner in four categories – with CITIGO (city car), FABIA (supermini), SUPERB (executive) and KAROQ (family SUV) representing the best value for money within a set price bracket.
