The ŠKODA SUPERB Estate has extended its remarkable winning streak by taking home the What Car? Best Estate award for the seventh year in the row. Not to be outshone by the seven-time winner, the new ENYAQ iV, SCALA, OCTAVIA, KAMIQ and SUPERB Hatch were all named as Best Buy winners by the What Car? judging panel.
Read on to explore what the What Car? Judges had to say about the Skoda stars of 2021.
ŠKODA SUPERB Estate – ‘Estate Car of the Year’
“When it comes to carrying capacity, the SUPERB Estate turns it up to 11… carry-on suitcases that is. In other words, it has enough space for anything you might wish to carry, and then some. In addition, few rivals even get close to the passenger space it offers, while the interior is smartly finished, the ride comfortable and the pricing very attractive.” – Steve Huntingford, What Car? Editor
ŠKODA KAMIQ – ‘Best Small SUV for Practicality’
“The KAMIQ is exactly what many buyers are looking for: a smallish car with small car costs and small car convenience, but the practicality of something much larger.”
ŠKODA OCTAVIA – ‘Best Family Car for Practicality’
"All passengers are well catered for in the ŠKODA OCTAVIA, while the boot is simply cavernous. It comfortably betters those of direct rivals, and shames a number of much larger models."
ŠKODA ENYAQ – ‘Best Electric SUV for Value’
"When you look at everything that you get with the ENYAQ iV, it frankly looks like a bargain compared with any of its similar-sized rivals. Yet despite that keen pricing, it comes very well equipped and its interior feels expensive.”
ŠKODA SCALA – ‘Best Family Car for Value’
"The SCALA is very temptingly priced, the 1.0-litre petrol engine in our favourite version offers low running costs, and our recommended SE trim gets lots of standard kit.”
ŠKODA SUPERB – ‘Best Executive Car for Value’
"The SUPERB has long been a What Car? favourite, because it punches well above its weight when it comes to space and comfort, and delivers a knockout blow in terms of value for money.”
