- Superb secures two prestigious UK Car of the Year 2016 titles
- Superb Estate named Best Estate – Superb Hatch named Best Family Car
- 27-strong jury commended pair’s blend of practicality, comfort, cost and quality
- Now in its third year, UKCOTY awards highlight best cars for UK consumers
Another brace of industry accolades have been awarded to the all-new ŠKODA Superb. Continuing their rich run of award successes, the Superb Hatch and Estate have been named as the best in the business in the 2016 UK Car of the Year Awards (UKCOTY).
The Superb Hatch triumphed in the Best Family Car category – widely regarded as one of the most competitive sectors of the new car market. Selected as a clear winner by UKCOTY’s 27-strong judging panel, the Superb Hatch was praised for its exceptional comfort and high quality.
Tim Pollard, UKCOTY juror said: “Can you think of a family car delivering more space, equipment – and gloss – per pound? I can’t.”
His views were echoed by other members of the jury, with Chris Russon commenting; “The Superb Hatch has incredible quality and all-round performance, at a price that makes others wince.” Fellow juror Al Suttie added further praise, saying; “ŠKODA offers more space, comfort and quality than anyone else at this price. The Superb is best family hatch there is.”
Further proving the Superb’s strength in depth, the Estate version also took honours – loading up with the Best Estate Car title. As with the hatch, the judging panel were bowled over by the Superb Estate’s quality, comfort and practicality.
Jury member Paul Hudson felt the new Superb was; “even better than its peerless predecessor for a combination of space, quality and low running costs.”
Tim Pollard agreed, adding; “It adds amazing volume to the Superb’s already excellent qualities. There is no finer load-lugger for the money,” while Matt Joy added; “Nothing you do could ever require a car more spacious than this.”
These latest UK Car of the Year titles add to the new Superb’s impressive haul of industry and press awards. Since its UK market launch in September 2015, ŠKODA’s flagship model has been a regular on the top step of the podium, taking home five key industry titles - including What Car? Estate Car of the Year and The Sunday Times Estate Car of the Year.
