New SKODA Superb Honoured

Open the champagne... SKODA has scooped two awards

Open the champagne... SKODA has scooped two awards from respected car publication Fleet News. And why not? Judges voted the Superb Estate number one in the 'Best Estate Car' category, and the saloon version received a 'commended placing' in the 'Best Upper Medium Car' class. SKODA also claimed the 'Most Improved Fleet Manufacturer of the Year' title, which was introduced in 2010. Hang on... let me think. Was that two years ago?

Fleet News Editor, Stephen Briers, commented on the double victory: “The Superb Estate is a truly impressive load-lugger with class-leading carrying capacity. No rival can offer such breadth of abilities including comfort, quality, fuel economy and low running costs - and its attributes are being recognised by fleets in increasing numbers.”

Stephen continued: “For a manufacturer to be taken seriously by fleet operators, it must have much more than a good line-up of suitable products. SKODA has improved the green credentials of its range, while initiatives introduced to commit to the service levels and support that fleet operators expect are already paying dividends.“

Martin Burke, SKODA UK’s Head of Fleet Sales, was delighted with the two honours. He added: “That the Superb saloon and estate are still collecting awards in 2012 is testament to just what outstanding cars they are. To be receiving them for our work in the corporate sector, so crucial to our future plans, makes these awards all the more satisfying.”
