MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Marc 4, 2013: Two of Škoda’s newest models have illustrated how the popular value-for-money brand is heading in the right direction… by winning coveted ‘Car of the Year’ awards.

The honours have been handed out by respected consumer motoring website CarBuyer, The ŠKODA Citigo, launched just last summer, was voted ‘Best City Car’ while the new Škoda Octavia, which only recently arrived in showrooms, earned the title ‘Best Family Car’.

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of CarBuyer, commented: “The Škoda Citigo ticks all the right boxes for city car buyers… and then some. It’s cute, cheap to buy and run, and great fun to drive – great things come in small packages and this is a truly great car.”

He added: “Škoda cars have always offered that rare blend of more for less and the new Octavia is a prime example. It offers more quality, more space and more value than its rivals, yet still manages to be cheaper – it’s a brilliant family car.”

Škoda has a history of success in the CarBuyer awards. The Superb won ‘Best Estate Car’ two years ago and then retained the title in 2012.

Commented on the double win, Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for Škoda UK, said: “Awards like these are always great to receive because they’re from a website which reflects what people are actually searching for online and buying from dealers. That two of our latest cars have beaten the competition is very satisfying.”
