ŠKODA has continued its remarkable winning streak at the 2019 Auto Express New Car Awards by topping three categories.
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.”
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.
The KAROQ has also done-the-double recording a repeat win as 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.”
