ŠKODA scoops first award of the year as Octavia Estate wins CarBuyer award

We’re only six days into the new year but ŠKODA has already picked up its first award.

The honour goes to the Ocatvia Estate which has won the 'Best Estate' category at the annual Car of the Year awards from respected consumer motoring website CarBuyer.

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief for CarBuyer, commented: "When it comes to space per pound, the ŠKODA Octavia Estate offers sensational value for money. It’s hugely practical for loads of any size, while there’s plenty of space inside for five big people, too. But from the driver’s seat, you can forget about whatever’s behind you - it’s great to drive with the quality and efficiency you’d expect from a ŠKODA."

With its unrivalled combination of space, usability, driver appeal, quality and value, the ŠKODA Octavia Estate is the highest-rated Estate on the CarBuyer website.

The CarBuyer awards are now in their third year and ŠKODA has a history of success. Including this latest award for the Octavia Estate, the Czech brand has won six categories. The awards are judged by the website’s expert test team, with the needs of real-world car buyers core to every rating.

Commenting Becky Whitmore, Product Manager for ŠKODA UK, said: "For the Octavia to be the highest rated Estate on the CarBuyer website is a tremendous achievement. It's been on sale for less than a year, yet its mix of performance, environmental credentials and value for money is obviously striking a chord with customers."
