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.”
