Octavia's Stunning Award

Skoda were delighted to announce today that the new Octavia has just won the auto express new car of the year 2020. 

It comprehensively outscored and outperformed a host of high-profile newcomers to take top spots in every category it was eligible for.

The OCTAVIA’s two category wins came in the fiercely competitive Compact Family Car and Estate Car categories. Remarkably, by taking the Estate Car crown, ŠKODA recorded its fifth win in succession with the fourth-generation OCTAVIA taking over from the previous model and delivering a seamless supply of ŠKODA silverware. 

Commenting on the OCTAVIA Estate’s win, Auto Express Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said: "For estate-car buyers space is always a priority, and there aren’t many family wagons that offer more room for either passengers or their luggage than the new OCTAVIA Estate. The main thing that makes this our winner for 2020 is the way it combines 640 litres of luggage room with class-leading technology, comfort, performance and efficiency." 

Not to be left out by its load-carrying sibling, the OCTAVIA hatch was crowned Compact Family Car 2020 by the Auto Express judging panel. The OCTAVIA inherited the category title from the SCALA, which took top honours in 2019. “Since launching in the UK in the late nineties, the OCTAVIA has become a byword for space, practicality and comfort” said Steve Fowler. “In this latest generation, it adds handsome looks, efficient engines, improved tech and even a couple of hot versions into the mix.”

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
