New Octavia Iv scoops an outright category win at the 2021 What Car? Awards

Škoda scoop yet more awards at the annual What Car? Awards, with the New Octavia iV picking up the outright winner of the Plug-in Hybrid of the Year 2021. Škoda picked up two outright category wins and were named Best Buy in another five new car sectors.

The New Octavia iV, although a newcomer, impressed the What Car? Judges with it’s value and practicality. Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor, said “The iV's official 282.5mpg shows what’s possible if you do lots of short journeys, while CO2 emissions of 31g/km drop it into the exceptionally low 6% company car tax bracket. Crucially, though, you still get all the usual Octavia Estate strengths, including a comfortable ride, loads of standard equipment and a boot that's big enough to build a barn in.”

The New Octavia iV may have won the plug-in award for the first time, but the Superb Estate made it six in succession in the Estate Category, meaning has won the award every year since 2016. Steve Huntingford had the following to say on the Superb Estate, “The Superb Estate is the most complete wagon you’ll find, offering a smooth and reassuring drive, an enormous boot and the sort of rear space usually reserved for cars that are chauffeur driven.” commented Steve Huntingford. “The fact that it's incredibly well priced is merely the icing on the cake.”

On top of the outright category wins, Škoda was also named best buy in five categories. These included the Fabia named Best Estate Car for value and the Scala named Best Family Car for value, with Steve Huntingford saying, The Scala will set you back thousands less than similarly equipped rivals. What's more, it handles tidily, rides bumps smoothly and comfortably, and had an exceptionally roomy interior. It really is a car that gives you more for less.”

Further to these accolades, the Kamiq was named Best Small SUV for practicality, the Karoq won the Best Family SUV for practicality and the Superb completed the haul by winning the Best Executive Car for value.
