- Octavia Estate picks up ‘Best Estate car’ award from Diesel Car magazine for the second year running
- Stylish load-lugger wins praise for breadth of range and spaciousness
- Great-value Octavia Estate beats competition from the premium sector
Milton Keynes, 12 May 2015 – The Octavia Estate has won the ‘Best Estate Car’ award from respected magazine Diesel Car in its annual awards. The hard-working Octavia Estate won praise not just for its load-carrying ability, but also passenger space, low emissions and ŠKODA’s high levels of customer satisfaction.
The latest Octavia Estate has been a favourite of reviewers and customers alike since it was launched in 2013. Built on a state-of-the-art platform, it features a blend of cutting edge technology and the Simply Clever features for which ŠKODA is renowned, along with low running costs and a great driving experience.
Ian Robertson, Editor of Diesel Car, was full of praise for the ŠKODA Octavia Estate. He said: “Mid-sized estate cars don’t come any roomier than the ŠKODA Octavia, so it’s no wonder that this load lugging version outsells the hatchback edition, and sales volumes continue on an upward curve. There truly is an Octavia for everyone, including a four-wheel drive drivetrain, DSG twin-clutch automatic transmissions and versions that emit just 85g/km of CO2, while recording an astonishing official economy figure of 88.3mpg.
“Family cars don’t come any better packaged than this, with generous space for passengers and cargo alike. It’s a quality machine, too, with stylish looks, both inside and out, and customer satisfaction levels that rival car makers are intensely jealous of.”
“The Octavia Estate is at the heart of the ŠKODA brand, with a version for everyone, from the frugal Greenline III to the speedy vRS to the rugged Scout. Thousands of new owners are finding out for themselves every year and we’re delighted to be recognised by Diesel Car,” said Chris Horrell, Product Marketing Manager, ŠKODA UK.
