Double Award Win for Škoda at Auto Express Awards

The brand’s best-selling model in the UK has continued its winning streak at the Auto Express New Car Awards with OCTAVIA once again beating off the competition to win Family Car of the Year. OCTAVIA also retained its Estate Car of the Year crown, a title it has now won for a sixth consecutive year.

Featuring a winning combination of space, style, connectivity and advanced driver assistance systems, the latest generation OCTAVIA has been a favourite of reviewers and customers alike since it launched in 2020.

Commenting on the duo of awards, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler, said: “The ŠKODA OCTAVIA has been a top choice in the family and estate car classes for a long time, and the newest model – which has for the second time scooped our best family car and best estate car categories – is as good as ever. It offers a great level of tech, both in terms of in-car gadgets and life-saving safety equipment. New technology also helps its engines to be more efficient and quieter than ever, too.”

Auto Express is one of the UK’s most prominent car publications. The Auto Express New Car awards recognise the very best motors that car buyers can choose from, across 30 categories.
