ŠKODA OCTAVIA & SUPERB Voted '4x4 Of The Year'
The award winning ŠKODA range have added more accolades to their collection. Readers of the German Auto Bild Allrad magazine have awarded two ŠKODA models with ‘4x4 of the year’ titles. In the category of all-wheel drive vehicles under €40,000, the OCTAVIA claimed the title as overall winner and best import car. The SUPERB was also named best import car but for the more than €40,000 category. It is not the first time these models have been recognised at these awards, the OCTAVIA was picked for the fourth time, and the SUPERB for an incredible eleventh time.
Christian Strube, ŠKODA AUTO Board Member for Technical Development, said, “The fact that the OCTAVIA and SUPERB have been named 4x4s of the year by the knowledgeable Auto Bild Allrad readers is great testament to our brand’s high level of all-wheel-drive expertise: our 4×4s meet all kinds of expectations and demands and, thanks to state-of-the-art and intelligent all-wheel-drive technology, they make driving fun and handling safe in every driving situation. On behalf of my entire team, I would like to thank every reader who voted for our models and thus enabled ŠKODA to come top in two categories.”
It was the nineteenth time the ‘4x4 of the year’ awards took place. There were 218 models in eleven categories for the readers of the magazine to choose from. The readers could place their votes online from 10th January to 6th March.
The 4x4 ŠKODA models are extremely popular across Europe, in 2019 approximately one in nine ŠKODA OCTAVIA models delivered in Europe were 4x4 models. The demand for 4x4 models has increased over the years, ŠKODA have matched this by expanding their 4x4 range and to date it includes the KAROQ, OCTAVIA KODIAQ and SUPERB models.
