ŠKODA did the double at the annual Fleet World awards - with its flagship model, the SUPERB, winning Best Upper Medium Car for the third year in a row. The seven-seat KODIAQ also bagged Best Large Family Car of the Year.
Commenting on the SUPERB’s win, Fleet World Editor Alex Grant said: “The SUPERB takes its third successive win in this category, because it remains a no-brainer for fleets. It’s not only a highly-functional, cost-efficient product for job-need users, but the design, refinement and driving experience has lured drivers out of premium products. ŠKODA has, quite rightly, become the benchmark even its longest-standing rivals measure themselves by.”
Alex was also full of praise for the KODIAQ: “ŠKODA prides itself on clever solutions to family life, and the KODIAQ takes that into new territory. Available with seven adult-sized seats and packed full of storage space, it’s a flexible alternative to the traditional MPV, offered with an extensive range of drivetrains and trims to suit most users. A family-mover perfectly tuned to market tastes, and clever with it.”
Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK, commented: “Three years after its launch, it’s fantastic to see that the SUPERB still lives up to its name and remains in high demand from businesses looking for an executive car that delivers on style, performance and value for money. We look forward to the KODIAQ continuing to be a stand-out SUV in the sector over the next few years as well.”
