Fleet News Award Caps Superb Night for ŠKODA

- ŠKODA Superb claims ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ title at Fleet News Awards

- Judges impressed by comfort and quality

The ŠKODA Superb was named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ at the 2016 Fleet News Awards, which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.  

The Fleet News Awards, now in its 28th year – seen as the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet awards’ calendar – recognises class-leading businesses, cars and individuals within the sector.

Standing out against competitors in its category, the all-new ŠKODA Superb is the most spacious and stylish yet. The SE Business specification offers the ideal combination of technology, comfort, desirability and value-for-money.

Judge Stephen Briers, Editor of Fleet News commented: "The Superb offers impressive comfort and the experience feels worthy of a car with a premium badge on the bonnet. The interior feels more crafted than mass produced and, although our test cars were medium and top equipment grades, the fit and finish has a true high-end quality.”

Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for ŠKODA UK, said: "We are delighted that the Superb has been named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’. The Fleet News Awards highlight the best cars available to large businesses, SMEs and company car drivers – and that’s exactly what the Superb is. With its class-leading residual values, class-leading space, eye-catching design and sophisticated technology, it has been a revelation in the fleet market.

"This accolade is testament to ŠKODA's fleet team, which continues to offer fantastic customer service, and to ŠKODA’s commitment to delivering excellent value without compromising on style or efficiency.”

Since its UK launch in September, the new Superb has picked up four awards this year alone, including What Car? Car of the Year 2016 for Best Estate Car. What’s more, true fleet sales are up 131% YoY. The ŠKODA Superb Estate SE Business 2.0 150PS offers whole-life cost advantages and competitive servicing costs, while returning 68.9mpg on the combined cycle.

It has a BiK rate of 19% and is available with P11D of just £23,335.
