ŠKODA tops two categories at 2014 Fleet News Awards ŠKODA Octavia Estate crowned ‘Best Estate Car’ and Yeti named ‘Crossover of the Year’ ŠKODA Superb Estate highly-commended

Milton Keynes, 25 MARCH 2014 – ŠKODA UK scooped two prestigious accolades at this year’s Fleet News Awards which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. The ‘Oscars’ of the fleet calendar, the annual event recognises the best-performing businesses and individuals within the sector during the last 12 months.

The panel of judges, made up of members of the Fleet News editorial team as well as industry experts, voted the ŠKODA Octavia Estate the ‘Best Estate Car’ for its combination of affordability and space, in addition to its range of efficient power plants. The Superb Estate, a winner of the category for the last two years, once again came highly-acclaimed in the same class.

In what proved to be a busy night for the vehicle manufacturer, the ŠKODA Yeti was also named ‘Best Crossover’, a model praised by the panel for quality, versatility, low rate of depreciation, and offering a very appealing and solid proposition to fleet operators.

Judge Stephen Briers, Editor of Fleet News commented: “The Octavia Estate has the best balance of space versus cost in this category. An excellent choice of efficient engines combined with strong driver appeal, makes it an ideal option as a stylish and flexible workhorse.

“ŠKODA’s second winner, Yeti, is a good all-rounder, with excellent running costs and the flexibility offered by on-road or (genuine) off-road options. The 2013 facelift made an already great car even better. Excellent build quality and very strong used values add to the perfect package.”

Patrick McGillycuddy, Head of Fleet ŠKODA UK said: “We are extremely proud to have received these two prestigious industry awards for the ŠKODA Octavia Estate and the Yeti crossover. Providing an exceptional level of practicality and value for money, as well as highly competitive CO2 emissions, both models have consistently proved popular amongst company car drivers.”

He added: “These accolades are a great achievement and further reinforce a very encouraging first quarter for ŠKODA fleet. It is also testiment to the team’s continued committment to building strong relationships with our customers and offering them expert advice about the model range.”
