SKODA Wins Five Titles in the Prestigious 2023 What Car? Awards

SKODA is the most decorated automotive brand within the industry within recent years, having scored more awards than any other manufacturer.

SKODA has won five titles in the coveted 2023 What Car? Awards this year. The Czech manufacturer was praised for its practicality, reasonable pricing and well-designed, comfortable driving experience.

The SKODA SUPERB was named the ‘Best Estate’ for the eighth time running and was also announced as the ‘Best Executive Car for Value’ in 2023.

The SCALA model scored the ‘Best Family Car for Value’ title for the second time in a row and the OCTAVIA model was named the ‘Best Family Car for Practicality’.

The last SKODA model that received an award was the KAROQ model, which was awarded the ‘Best Family SUV for Value’ in this year’s What Car? Awards.


Introducing the Skoda SUV Range


The Czech manufacturer has been the most successful within the industry, having scored 18 What Car? Award titles in three years. SKODA also won 43 awards across the automotive industry in 2022.

The manufacturer has continuously been complimented by its versatile and comfortable interiors, stylish designs and reliable performance - ready for daily commutes and longer family adventures.


The SUPERB has won the ‘Best Estate’ yearly since its launch in 2015, making it the most successful car within its category. It was also awarded the ‘Best Executive Car for Value’ in 2023.

This SKODA model comprises excellent and practical design, superior functionality and innovative technology – keeping the passengers comfortable and safe.


What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford, commented on the record win:

"If you want to know how good the SKODA SUPERB estate is, consider this: it's now won its class at the What Car? Awards for eight years in a row, an achievement no car has managed before.”

“As you'd expect, it offers loads of space, both for passengers and luggage. But it's also a very comfortable and relaxing car, comes with a great range of engines and is really big on value.”

The SKODA SUPERB also won the ‘Best Executive Car for Value’ title, thanks to its exceptional practicality and enjoyable driving experience. What Car? Editor, Steve Huntingford, also commented on the second title:

"While company car drivers are most often the kingmakers in the executive car class, these vehicles aren’t only for the benefit of business users; they can offer private buyers terrific value, too, and none more so than the comfortable and hugely spacious SUPERB.”

This model is SKODA’s first Plug-in Hybrid and is also available with a diesel or petrol engine. The direct-injection turbocharged engines deliver dynamic performance on every journey.

To reduce emissions, opt for the hybrid version and experience the combined power of an electric battery and a petrol engine.




The timeless SKODA SCALA wins the ‘Best Family Car for Value’ in the esteemed What Car? Awards for the second time running.

This hatchback is a perfect combination of sporty looks and a functional spacious interior. The smart new technology within the SCALA is guaranteed to assist you in keeping the whole family safe.

Reliable performance is ensured thanks to the seven-speed direct shift gearbox and sport chassis control.

Inside the vehicle, the cockpit is designed for the driver’s ease. The latest driver assistance features, driving mode selection and live navigation can be controlled easily with the virtual cockpit.

Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? Editor said:

"The SCALA stands out for its highly competitive pricing, yet it ticks boxes that plenty of much more expensive family cars fail to. For example, it combines a supple ride with composed handling, while inside you get loads of rear space, a big boot and a good infotainment system."





The low running costs, spacious interior and comfortable driving experience won the SKODA OCTAVIA its ‘Best Family Car for Practicality’ title in the 2023 What Car? Awards. This is the second year the model has won the award, adding to the Czech manufacturer’s success.

The Editor of What Car? Steve Huntingford, also commented on the Skoda Octavia win:

"As a hatchback that dwarfs most cars for interior and boot space, the SKODA OCTAVIA remains the family car to beat for practicality.”

“It offers six-footers loads of room for lounging in comfort, plus we managed to fit 10 carry-on suitcases in the boot – four more than most rivals cars can take."

The SKODA OCTAVIA promises to keep the whole family entertained and comfortable even for the longest journeys. Thanks to its spacious 1,555 litres of boot space and practical cabin storage compartments, every drive feels enjoyable.

The impressive aerodynamic design combined with powerful petrol and diesel engines provides a reliable ride. The dynamic chassis control technology also helps to adjust the driving to the conditions ahead, helping you to drive more smoothly.




The SKODA KAROQ might just be your best friend on longer family adventures. The SUV scored the desired ‘Best Family SUV for Value’ title in this year’s What Car? Awards.

The win of the Skoda Karoq was commented on by Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? Awards:

"With car prices rising seemingly day by day, finding great value is harder than ever.”

“But you absolutely get that with the SKODA KAROQ, because this temptingly priced family SUV offers a spacious interior with clever rear seating and is a pleasure to drive, thanks to its comfortable ride and great visibility."

The higher ground clearance and protective features of this SUV make every family adventure a joy, even on more challenging terrains. Sharply cut headlamps with integrated fog lamps as well as the rear LED lights ensure that you will not go unnoticed.


Be prepared for every journey thanks to the seven-speed DSG, automatically adjusting to your driving style, making it possible for you to focus more on the road ahead.

Within the cabin, you can adjust the front seats electronically to ensure an optimised driving position. Change the temperature individually for front and rear passengers thanks to the tri-climate zone control. Entertainment and driver information is easily displayed on the virtual cockpit, including navigation, speed and more.
