Skoda picked up a brace of awards at the 2018 Fleet News Awards, after the Skoda Superb was named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ and the all-new Skoda Karoq was named ‘Best Mid-size SUV’.
The Fleet News Awards is now in its 30th year and is regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the fleet awards’ calendar. The awards recognise class-leading businesses, cars and individuals within the sector.
The Skoda Superb’s title of ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ in 2018 marks a hat-trick of consecutive victories. Despite being one of the most competitive categories, the Superb stood out for its excellent value-for-money, technology, comfort and desirability.
The all-new Skoda Karoq won its first UK award, emerging top of a crowded segment to scoop ‘Best Mid-size SUV’. From small businesses to corporate fleets, the Karoq offers a host of technology and driver assistance systems at their fingertips.
The latest addition to the model line-up sets the standard for driver connectivity with features that include Amundsen satellite navigation with an eight-inch touchscreen display with European mapping, voice control and integrated Wi-Fi.
Henry Williams, Head of Fleet for Skoda UK, commented “The Superb is a beautifully designed vehicle that offers luxury driving for fleets at excellent value that can’t be beaten and we are delighted that it has picked up this award for the second year running.
“These awards showcase the strength of our current model line-up and the competitive package that we offer business customers.”
The Skoda Superb Estate SE Tech 2.0 TDI 150PS offers whole-life cost advantages and competitive servicing costs and is available with a BIK rate of 24% and P11D of £25,230.
The all-new Skoda Karoq has been launched with an SE Tech trim exclusively designed for fleets to offer greater value for money: the SE Tech 1.5 TSI 150PS DSG has a P11D of £23,310 and a BIK rate of 24%.
