CITIGO and FABIA Awarded at What Car? Used Car Awards 2019
The ŠKODA CITIGO and FABIA have been awarded top honours at the What Car? Used Car Awards 2019.
The CITIGO was named Used City Car of the Year, whilst the FABIA gained the accolade of Used Small Car of the Year. The judges looked for criteria such as value for money, reliability and ownership costs before making their final decisions. The panel only considered vehicles that were under 5 years old and readily available on the used car market.
The CITIGO has been an important part of the ŠKODA range since 2012 and has won many industry awards in the past. The What Car? judges were impressed with the car’s build quality and broad range.
Alex Robbins, What Car? Used Cars Editor, commented “The CITIGO has long been a What Car? favourite, and indeed it was a contender for our Used City Car award last year. Early examples now look like terrific options for buyers on a budget, while later models and special edition versions are available with smart looks and toys for used car buyers who are able to spend a little more. And there are plenty of CITIGOs around, which makes it easy to find a tidy example.”
Both the CITIGO and FABIA were runners up in last year’s awards, proving that some things definitely improve with age. Alex Robbins continues “No wonder it won our New Car of the Year award in 2015, and was a contender for our Used Small Car award last year. The FABIA isn't just practical and reliable, though; you also get a range of flexible, efficient petrol engines and plenty of equipment, not to mention an excellent safety rating. And with early cars now priced very competitively versus their contemporaries, that makes a used FABIA hard to resist.”
