ŠKODA’s flagship Superb has scooped Best Large Car at the What Diesel Car of the Year Awards 2009. The Superb beat 17 other contenders, including the Ford Mondeo and Citroen C5, to take the top spot thanks to its design, unique Twindoor boot system, outstanding fuel efficiency and great range of diesel engines. Ian Robertson, Editor of What Diesel, said: "It's a fine drive, with a good choice of TDI engines and the unique Twindoor system adds to its versatility. With its spacious, airy cabin, huge boot and limousine ride, it is a superb choice."
Robert Hazelwood, ŠKODA UK Brand Director said: “This is another prestigious award for the Superb. What Diesel is a well trusted and much-read publication and, along with the Caravan Club’s Towcar of the Year accolade that Superb won last year, this confirms what we already know – that the Superb is a fantastic car – a great choice for fleet and retail buyers alike.” The Superb has now won nearly 30 top awards across Europe since its official premiere at the Geneva Motor Show last year. Most recently it has been named Car of the Year 2009 in the Czech Republic.
ŠKODA has sold over 20,000 new Superbs across Europe since the car was launched. Its performance has also been strong in the UK, with sales performing ahead of target. What Diesel said: "ŠKODA has quite simply reinvented the large car as we know it. Which do you prefer: businesslike saloon or handy family hatchback? With true innovation, the Superb contrives to be both at once. Its USP… is that clever hybrid rear door with switchable opening. It lets you decide whether you want it to operate as bootlid or tailgate, and we think its brilliant.”
