MILTON KEYES, UK -- July 16, 2014: ŠKODA has continued its rich run of awards success with a third successive City Car of the Year title at the annual Auto Express Awards. The brand was also commended for the Superb and Octavia Estate, in the Best Family Car category and Best Estate Car category respectively.

The Citigo has been a firm favourite with Auto Express since its launch, having won the coveted Car of the Year title in 2012. Despite tough opposition in what has become a fiercely competitively sector, the judges felt that the Citigo still stands head and shoulders above its rivals. No matter how hard rivals have tried, they’ve failed to knock the ŠKODA off the top spot.”

Commenting on the award, Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief for Auto Express said: “The Citigo takes to the crowded urban jungle like a duck to water. Compact dimensions, excellent visibility and an eager three-cylinder engine help you make the most of gaps in the traffic and park in tight spots.”

Collecting the award for ŠKODA, Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director added: “This award proves what a wonderful package the Citigo is. Affordable, stylish and fun to drive, it represents everything great about ŠKODA. We’re delighted that Auto Express continues to regard the Citigo as the best in its class, and this award means a great deal to everyone at the brand.”
