ŠKODA has continued its remarkable winning streak at the Auto Express New Car Awards by topping three categories, with the all-new SCALA taking one of the biggest awards in the business – the Compact Family Car of the Year.
The OCTAVIA and KAROQ were also named the best in their respective sectors, comfortably outscoring their competitors to take top spot.
King of the compact car
SCALA kicked-off proceedings with a headline-grabbing win in the competitive Compact Family Car of the Year category. The sector accounts for a considerable percentage of new car sales in the UK, and the SCALA is set to redefine standards for practicality, comfort and value.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express, said: “The SCALA is ultra-fresh on the market, with right-hand-drive cars having just hit the UK; and when it comes to a balance of space, usability and budget, it’s the new king of the compact car class. And in a class as competitive as this, that really takes some doing. We love the spacious cabin, comfortable ride and efficient engines, and our judges found that it’s a slick package dynamically, too.”
OCTAVIA at it again
The OCTAVIA continued its incredible run of awards success by driving off with the Estate Car of the Year title for the fourth year in a row. Once again, the panel were impressed by the OCTAVIA’s broad range, unbeatable usability and smooth driving experience.
Another ŠKODA recording a repeat win was the KAROQ, which was named Mid-size SUV of the Year for a second year in a row.
Steve said: “ŠKODA is known for its practical and great-value cars, but that alone isn’t enough to secure a win in this ultra-competitive class. What sealed the deal for our judges was the fact that the KAROQ is an amazing all-rounder, excelling in all the key areas: it has a high-quality cabin, lots of space, excellent refinement, and plenty of smart tech.”To find out more about the award winning ŠKODA range contact John Mulholland ŠKODA Randalstown or Campsie.
