ŠKODA OCTAVIA crowned Car of the Year at the 2018 Auto Trader Awards
Added: 04 June 2018
Auto Trader readers and website visitors named the OCTAVIA as the best new car in the UK, and the SUPERB as Best Family Car.
The OCTAVIA – which was extensively updated last year –finished ahead of the second-placed BMW 1-Series and third-placed Peugeot 3008.
Commenting on the OCTAVIA’s award win, Ivan Aistrop, Auto Trader’s Road Test Editor, said: “It’s easy to see why Britain’s car owners have voted the OCTAVIA as their overall New Car of the Year. It offers an incredibly appealing mix of practicality, quality and affordability, and it’s also good to drive, well equipped and full of clever features to make everyday life easier. As all-rounders go, they don’t get much better than this.”
Like the OCTAVIA, the SUPERB is no stranger to award silverware and this Auto Trader award is its 31st industry title since its introduction in 2015.
Aistrop said: “The SUPERB is a great family car. Family life is demanding, so you need your family car to help make life a little easier every step of the way. The Superb is packed with lots of clever labour-saving little features, and it’s also massive, with plenty of space for your brood, and all their stuff. Impressive quality, lots of luxury kit and a sophisticated driving experience all help, too. No wonder owners love it.”
Combined, the OCTAVIA and SUPERB have secured more than 45 industry awards over the past four years - making them two of the most decorated models in the brand’s history.
