Post Skoda Winning Awards

  • Škoda Octavia scoops ‘Best Family Car’ award from Parkers
  • Škoda Superb take class win in annual Fleet News honours
  • Škoda Yeti is ‘Highly Commended’

Škoda’s multi-award winning line-up has secured two category wins in a week from highly respected motoring titles on both the consumer and corporate sides of the publishing industry.

Experts at popular buying guide Parkers voted the Octavia S 1.2 TSI number one in the ‘Family Cars’ sector of its New Car Awards 2011.





Kieren Puffett, Editor of Parkers, paid tribute to the Octavia S 1.2 TSI, saying it was the family car that made a buyer’s cash go the furthest – the key criteria in selecting winners of Parkers’ New Car Awards.

He continued: “In one of the most competitive sectors in the car market, the Octavia underlined just what tremendous value it provides to car buyers. The sheer roominess of the Octavia, its practicality and decent levels of standard kit make it an immediate hit with families. Throw in top build quality, great reliability and the frugal nature of the 1.2-litre petrol engine that also delivers great performance and it is a compelling buy.”





Later in the week (w/c 14.3.11), Fleet News jurors picked the Superb as the ‘Best Upper Medium’ car at its annual honours. They also gave the ŠkodaYeti a ‘Highly Commended’ award in the ‘Best Crossover’ category.

The Superb’s triumph at the awards is particularly sweet forŠkoda as it scooped the same trophy last year. It’s continued recognition for the critically acclaimed executive car and further evidence of the outstanding progress being made by the Czech brand.

Fleet News judges said: “The Superb has much to offer with its class-leading space, luxury features and elegant styling. The Yeti has given Škoda the power to grab the attention of fleet operators. With a rugged appearance, solid build and low operating costs, it is a good option for fleets.”





Škoda UK’s Head of Fleet Sales, Martin Burke, collected the two Fleet News awards in front of 1,300 key industry players at a gala ceremony at London’s prestigious Grosvenor Hotel.

“To pick up one award and get a ‘Highly Commended’ in front of so many people from the industry really puts Škoda at the forefront of their minds when deciding who they should talk to in the future,” he commented.
