SKODA's new Superb has received its first industry accolade, scooping the 'Family Car of the Year' title at the annual Auto Express New Car Awards in London.
The brand's success didn't stop there, as SKODA was invited to the stage to collect the 'City Car of the Year' award for the Citigo.
The new Superb has only just become available to order in the UK, yet it has already been recognised for its impressive blend of sharp-edged styling, high equipment levels, huge interior space and great value, having been named Family Car of the Year at the awards ceremony in London.
Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief at Auto Express, said: "The Superb now truly lives up to its name. It offers the best combination of all the elements families look for in a car: practicality, low running costs, great technology and loads of space, but what seals the deal is that it is now a seriously stylish car that you'll be proud to have parked on your drive."
The Citigo has been a firm favourite with Auto Express since its launch, having won the coveted Car of the Year title in 2012. Despite tough opposition in what has become a fiercely competitively sector, the judges felt that the Citigo still stands head and shoulders above its rivals. No matter how hard rivals have tried, they've failed to knock the SKODA off the top spot.
Fowler added: "The Citigo continues to set a very high benchmark in the city car class. With its compact dimensions, lively three-cylinder engine and great build quality, it remains a hugely appealing proposition for buyers."
Collecting the awards for SKODA, Martin Barrow-Starkey, head of sales operations, commented: "These awards recognise the breadth of the amazing product range we have at SKODA, from the Citigo to the Superb.
"We're delighted that Auto Express continues to regard the Citigo as the best in its class, and the first win for the Superb in the UK is especially important to us - this means a great deal to everyone at the brand."
