Skoda is delighted to have received a BBC Top Gear Magazine Award for the class-leading Skoda Superb.
Top Gear, one of the industry's most recognised and respected publications, named the Skoda Superb 'Luxury Car of the Year'. In its 10th year, the Top Gear Awards run across 24 international editions and recognise the most exciting and innovative cars launched in the last 12 months.
The winners were selected by Top Gear's TV, online and magazine teams and Conor McNicholas, who had high praise for the Skoda Superb, which fended off far more expensive opposition to scoop the title of 'Luxury Car of the Year':
"It's in the ride, the refinement, the quality of the interior, the understated drama of the exterior - the Superb is all that, and in estate form it makes even more sense." He concluded: "For the well-healed or those of us that wish we were, the Superb Estate is a class act that really delivers. Don't let the great price fool you!"
The Skoda Superb Estate is expected to account for a third of all Skoda Superb sales when it goes on sale in the UK in February 2010, of which fleet sales are expected to make up approximately 75 per cent.Published 8 December 2009
