This year at the What Car? Awards 2016, SKODA shows off its diversity with a variety of awards across its range. From Best Small Car to Best Estate and everything in between!
SKODA Superb Estate 2.0 TDI 150 SE Business: Best Estate Car
“In mid-spec Business trim it really does feel like they’ve thought of everything that makes a great estate car,” Estate cars are all about boot space and practicality.
The Superb has both in spades as well as an excellent interior. The judges preferred engine was the 2.0-litre diesel, with 148bhp.
“It has bags of low-down torque, and with only 109g/km of CO2 emissions, it generates reasonable company car tax bills.” Find out more about the Superb Estate.
SKODA Fabia 1.2 TSI 90 SE: Best Estate Car -£18,000
“The best practicality you can get for less than £15k, it’s a heck of a carry-all for the money.”
SKODA rule the roost when it comes to estate cars this year. The Fabia comes in behind its big brother as a budget option to the Superb. With the SE trim you’ll find a 6.5in colour touchscreen for an infotainment system that’s easy to use and quick to respond to inputs, as well air conditioning and electric windows that comes as standard.

SKODA Citigo 1.0 60 SE 5dr: Best City Car -£10,000
“Well priced and comfortable, with a peppy 1.0-litre engine perfect for town driving.”
Always a great choice for low-cost city driving, the Citigo has earned the 2016 accolade for Best City Car Under £10,000. With the 1.0 60 SE coming in at £9485, it’s a great deal that comes with air-con, central locking and electric front windows, as well as a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty. Take a look at the SKODA Ciitgo.
SKODA Fabia 1.2 TSI 90 SE: Best Small Car
“It’s well built, spacious, refined and offered with a wide range of modern features and safety equipment; for the money, no other small car is as capable.”
That’s what it takes to win Best Small Car and the SKODA Fabia has it all. Beating off competition from the formerly class-leading Ford Fiesta and VW Polo, the SKODA Fabia retains its title as Best Small Car. To the judges, the key appeal is the option of SKODA’s flexible 1.2 TSI engine. It offers up remarkable punch for its size, meaning the Fabia feels as at home on faster-flowing roads as it does in the city. It’s smooth and quiet, adding to the interior’s upmarket feel, while in our True MPG tests it returned an impressive 44.9mpg. Learn more about the SKODA Fabia Hatch.
SKODA Octavia 1.2 TSI 110 SE: Best Family Car
“Interior space is exceptional, and the Octavia is fitted with the latest safety equipment and powered by a small but mighty engine.”
Combining vast interior space and excellent value, the Octavia makes for an ideal family car. The Octavia is easy to drive around town, while the direct steering and composed handling make it rewarding to hustle along country roads. On longer motorway stints the supportive seats and excellent driving position help to keep you feeling fresh. The 1.2-litre petrol engine is smooth with plenty of mid-range shove, and it averaged 44.2mpg in our real-world True MPG tests. Take a look at the SKODA Octavia Estate.
SKODA Superb 2.0 TDI 150 SE: Best Compact Executive Cars
“If there’s one key area where the Superb scores over rivals, it’s space; despite being in the lowest price point, it’s easily the biggest compact executive car.”
Interior quality in the Superb is much better than the bargain price may suggest; there are plenty of soft-touch plastics and the ergonomics are top-notch. You also get plenty of kit for your cash. SE Business gets Alcantara-trimmed seats, climate control, parking sensors and even sat-nav. Despite the toys and sheer size of the Superb, you won’t have to stop for fuel too often, thanks to impressive economy.
From the biggest estate to the smallest hatch, SKODA’s range will certainly have something award-winning to suit your needs. And as far as What Car? is concerned, SKODA is the best choice for an estate car this year. Explore the SKODA Superb.
