Once again, SKODA have taken home top rewards from WhatCar? - formerly regarded as the 'Oscars' of the automotive industry.
For 2019, we have two category titles and four price point wins; one of the strongest ever performances for the brand it has ever had.
SKODA WhatCar? 2019 category wins
Leading the tribe of winnings, the SKODA Octavia was named 'Family Car of the Year' by WhatCar? for the second year running. The panel praised the Octavia for its remarkable interior layout and high specification of models across the range. WhatCar? editor, Steve Huntingford, said: "The Octavia remains the best family car on sale, and by quite some margin, because it's comfortable, well equipped, temptingly priced, and a lot more practical that all its rivals".
Another family-sized SKODA, the SUPERB, took the 'Estate Car of the Year' for its fourth successive category win. The Superb has dominated this sector since 2016 and proved once again to be the class of the field. It impressed the WhatCar? panel with its practicality, intelligent design, and value for money.
SKODA WhatCar? price point wins
We've also been recognised as a price champion!
The Citigo was named 'best city car' between £9,000 and £11,000 for an amazing seventh year in a row! While the Fabia Estate was judged 'best estate car' for less than £18,000.
The new SKODA Karoq was also given the best choice within its price bracket, with the 1.5 TSI 150 SE L model named as 'best family SUV' between £18,000 and £30,000. Steve Huntingford said, "You won't find a rival that offers a more cosseting ride than the KAROQ. Plus, it's extremely practical and its 1.5-litre petrol engine is punchy yet frugal. It's a very well-rounded family SUV.”
To finish the impressive awards we've won this year, WhatCar? named the SKODA Superb as the 'best executive car for less than £25,000'. The judges praised the SUPERB’s practicality and value, with Steve adding: “Nothing else in the executive car class offers as much space as the SUPERB, whether that’s up front, in the rear or in the boot. It’s truly limousine-like and it delivers an all-round package that is simply unbeatable for the money."
