Car leasing news: Skoda picks up 2 awards

JonathanMarch 23, 2011

Car leasing customers wondering which brand of motor to go for may be influenced by the news that Skoda has won big at one awards show.

The Swedish auto company was picked by vehicle guide Parker’s to win the Best Family Car prize at the New Car Awards for its Octavia S 1.2 TSI, which was described as excellent value for money.

Skoda was highly praised again this week at the Fleet News Awards, which saw the Superb model chosen as the Best Upper Medium car and the Yeti gain a Highly Commended accolade in the Best Crossover category.

Martin Burke, head of fleet sales at Skoda UK, said: “To pick up one award and get a ‘Highly Commended’ in front of so many people from the industry really puts Skoda at the forefront of their minds when deciding who they should talk to in the future.”

The company also picked up a raft of prizes at the end of last year, winning categories at the Daily Express Motoring Oscars and MSN Cars’ Best Cars of 2010.
