Škoda Superb claims ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ title at Fleet News Awards

Škoda Superb, ‘Best Upper Medium Car’, Fleet News Awards.

The Škoda Superb was named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’ at the 2016 Fleet News Awards, with judges impressed by its comfort and quality.

The all-new Superb is the most spacious and stylish yet, says Škoda, with the SE Business specification offering the ideal combination of technology, comfort, desirability and value-for-money.

Editor-in-chief of Fleet News and awards judge Stephen Briers said: "The Superb offers impressive comfort and the experience feels worthy of a car with a premium badge on the bonnet.

„The interior feels more crafted than mass produced and, although our test cars were medium and top equipment grades, the fit and finish has a true high-end quality.”

Henry Williams, head of fleet for Škoda UK, said: "We are delighted that the Superb has been named ‘Best Upper Medium Car’. The Fleet News Awards highlight the best cars available to large businesses, SMEs and company car drivers – and that’s exactly what the Superb is. With its class-leading residual values, class-leading space, eye-catching design and sophisticated technology, it has been a revelation in the fleet market.

"This accolade is testament to Škoda's fleet team, which continues to offer fantastic customer service, and to Škoda’s commitment to delivering excellent value without compromising on style or efficiency.”

Since its UK launch in September, the new Superb has picked up four awards this year alone, including What Car? Car of the Year 2016 for Best Estate Car. What’s more, true fleet sales are up 131% YoY.

    Really? can't remember last time I saw one on the road, sales up 131%, so they sold 6 instead of 5? I don't know anyone who would choose one!

      Really? I would choose one loads of space, a good looking car, reliable have you driven one? please be a bit more clear about what you do not like about the car, instead of the badge!
