Skoda Superb Estate Elegance celebrates repeat triumph

The Skoda Superb Estate Elegance 2.0 litre TDI DSG celebrates its latest repeat triumph for the second year running by taking top honours in the £25,000-£32,000 category

The Skoda Superb Estate Elegance 2.0 litre TDI DSG celebrates its latest repeat triumph for the second year running by taking top honours in the £25,000-£32,000 category.

Skoda UK Brand Director, Robert Hazelwood, said “winning any honour once is a great achievement but to do it again is testament to the outstanding engineering, and quality of the Škoda range. We know the caravanning community is an enthusiastic supporter of the Superb Elegance Estate. Its powerful 2.0-litre diesel engine and efficient DSG transmission create a refined and stable base for stress-free long-distance towing.”

During track tests the judges assessed each car’s towing ability as well as acceleration, braking and the ability to cope with demanding hill starts. They also made careful assessments of each entrant’s usability in terms of everyday caravanning. The competition attracted 30 entrants from a variety of big-name car manufacturers. The 30 cars were divided into three price classes and two all-wheel-drive categories (up to 1800kg and over 1800kg). Manufacturers were invited to submit any models that were new launches in the period 1 August 2010 to 30 September 2011, or existing models that had been substantially modified.
