Skoda is celebrating a Superb ending to 2010 as the brand’s flagship model was named Family Car of the Year by Channel 5’s hit show Fifth Gear.
“Right at the beginning of the year, I crowned this the greatest estate ever - and I stand by that even now. The mixture of space, speed, refinement, value, economy, comfort - it’s a beaut,” said Fifth Gear presenter, Jonny Smith. “Honestly, if you’re a dad and you need a car to carry all the flotsam and jetsam that comes with it, this is thecar you need. It’s faultless. I love it.”
This latest accolade represents the 20th awarded for Skoda this year in these islands, with the Octavia, Yeti, Superb, and Superb Estate racking up a raft of product awards across a wide range of publications and organisations.
Skoda also recently came top in the Auto Express Driver Power Survey, while the brand was yet again ranked in the top 10 manufacturers of the JD Power Customer Satisfaction Survey for the 17th consecutive year.
