Winners! ŠKODA Auto Express 2024 awards

The new Octavia, all-new Superb and all-new Kodiaq marked their arrival in the UK by scoring top marks with the Auto Express judging panel while the Enyaq continues on its winning streak.

Leading the way was the new Octavia which picked up the award for Family Car of the Year. Auto Express Editor Paul Barker, said: “The updated Octavia looks smarter and is better equipped than ever. And as before, the Octavia plays best as an ultra-capable, long-distance, comfy cruiser. At this game, there are few that can truly rival it.”

The updated Octavia wasn’t the only new Škoda model to wow the Auto Express judging panel. The all-new Superb and Kodiaq were both named as best-in-class in the Estate Car and Large SUV categories respectively. Paul Barker said: “The new Superb and Kodiaq build on the success of the previous generation cars. Both add a new layer of premium sophistication and interior quality to sit alongside the practicality, efficiency and clever innovation that we, and buyers, so love.”

The Kodiaq has now won the Best Large SUV award three times in a row and has racked up no fewer than five category wins at the Auto Express New Car Awards. The Superb has now been named best in its class on five occasions, making it one of the most successful cars at the Auto Express New Car Awards.

Away from the Auto Express Awards, the Enyaq was named Best Electric Large SUV in the EcoCar Electrified Top 50 Awards. The multi-award winning all-electric SUV was praised by Diesel&EcoCar Editor and Publisher Ian Robertson for its styling, practicality and comfort.
