Double Victory as ŠKODA Superb and Citigo Win at Annual Auto Express Awards

-New Superb wins Family Car of the Year category

-Citigo holds City Car of the Year title for fourth year in a row

-Annual awards from UK’s best-selling motoring weekly

ŠKODA has continued its rich run of awards success with the first UK award for the new Superb, which has been honoured as Family Car of the Year, and a fourth successive City Car of the Year title for the Citigo at the annual Auto Express Awards.

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 Auto Express Awards in London.

Commenting on the award, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief for 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 ŠKODA off the top spot.

Steve Fowler said: “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 ŠKODA, Martin Barrow-Starkey, Head of Sales Operations, added: “These awards recognise the breadth of the amazing product range we have at ŠKODA, 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."
