ŠKODA​ Achieves Double Success at Fleet World Honours

  • ŠKODA takes home two awards at annual Fleet World Honours
  • The ŠKODA Superb retains its title of Best Upper Medium Car for the third-year running
  • The seven-seat Kodiaq takes the title of Best Large Family Car
  • Practicality, performance and value were determining factors in the judging process

Great news for ŠKODA! The brand has taken home the double at the annual Fleet World Honours. The ŠKODA Superb won the accolade for Best Upper Medium Car for an impressive third consecutive year, and the recently launched seven-seat Kodiaq took the title of Best Large Family Car of the Year.

The ŠKODA Superb has once again impressed with its spacious interior, wide engine range and low Whole Life Costs. The Superb offers fleet drivers powertrains from 120PS to 280PS, and enhanced driving features such as Adaptive Cruise Control, Park Assist, Lane Assist and Blind Spot Detect for a more refined driving experience. The cavernous interior adds to its comfort, with 660 litres of boot space that extends to 1950 litres with all rear seats folded down, which makes it a winning solution for both business and home life.

Commenting on the Superb’s title, Alex Grant, editor, Fleet World, said: “The Superb takes its third successive win in this category, because it remains a no-brainer for fleets. It’s not only a highly functional, cost-efficient product for job-need users, but the design, refinement and driving experience has lured drivers out of premium products. ŠKODA has, quite rightly, become the benchmark even its longest-standing rivals measure themselves by.”

The title of Best Large Family Car, was awarded to the seven-seat ŠKODA Kodiaq, as a testament to the vehicle’s versatility, enhanced safety features and value for money. The Kodiaq combines practicality and style and includes an array of innovative technology as standard, including SmartLink+ and touchscreen infotainment system to help drivers stay connected when on the move.

The seven-seater also boasts the largest luggage space in its class, with 720/630 litres of boot space that transforms to 2065 / 2005 with the rear seats down in the 5/7 seats models respectively, helping transport both people and goods comfortably.

Explaining Fleet World’s decision, Alex Grant adds: “ŠKODA prides itself on clever solutions to family life, and the Kodiaq takes that into new territory. Available with seven adult-sized seats and packed full of storage space, it’s a flexible alternative to the traditional MPV, offered with an extensive range of drivetrains and trims to suit most users. A family-mover perfectly tuned to market tastes, and clever with it.”

Dan Jenkins, Brand Manager at Westover ŠKODA finishes: "The Superb has long been a popular choice for our business buyers on the South Coast and into Wiltshire. It's a brilliant car in every respect, from its outstanding value for money proposition to its luxurious interiors, its practical capability and its 'simply clever' touches. The Kodiaq looks set to follow in its footsteps and enjoy the same levels of enduring popularity. It's certainly proving to be a strong option for our customers."
