The Skoda ENYAQ iV and Skoda OCTAVIA COMBI receive three first places in the readers' poll for 'Family Car of the Year.' They add to Skoda's remarkable record in the 'Auto Motor Sport' award, which the Czech company has received 43 times since 2011. In the latest poll in the 'Technology' category, the best-imported vehicle up to 25,000 euros was the Skoda OCTAVIA COMBI. The electric flagship Skoda ENYAQ iV takes first place in the 'price/performance' classification for cars priced between 25,000 and 35,000 euros.
For the eleventh time, readers of 'Auto Motor Sport' were asked to submit their favorite family cars. Over 10,900 people responded to the call. There were 123 model series, including family-friendly station wagons, vans, and SUVs. A trunk volume of at least 400 liters and a maximum base price of 45,000 euros were required to participate. The cars were grouped into three price groups, with honors given for "Design," "Technology," and "Price/Performance." Furthermore, readers could always select an imported car winner and an overall winner.
The Skoda OCTAVIA COMBI competed in the price range of up to 25,000 euros. In the category 'Technology,' the Skoda bestselling model received every fifth vote (22.2 percent) in the voting for the import champion, propelling it to victory. The Skoda OCTAVIA COMBI, with a trunk volume of up to 1,700 liters, is also suited as a last-minute relocation aid. Even with a whole load of up to five persons, the boot still has a capacity of 640 liters.
Skoda provides an electric SUV appropriate for families with the ENYAQ iV, which can comfortably accommodate five passengers and their belongings. The Skoda ENYAQ iV electric SUV exceeds the basic need for 'vehicle traffic' with a load volume of 585 liters - up to 1,710 liters are available with the rear seats folded down. The ENYAQ iV wowed readers with its appealing price-performance ratio. Participants voted it first among all vehicles in the 'Price/performance' assessment in the price range between 25,000 and 35,000 euros: the electric flagship thus secured both import and overall win.
Skoda vehicles are perfect partners for large-scale shopping and family vacations because of their ample passenger and luggage space. Thanks to the folding seats, the trunk volume can be enlarged anytime. In ordinary life, the model range outperforms the brand standard. The Simply Clever touches include handy bag hooks that hold shopping bags in place, net systems that retain order in the trunk and several storage compartments that provide space for snacks, keys, children's toys, and other items. Another compelling reason for families is the distinction between active and passive safety. Skoda models consistently obtain the highest grade in the Euro NCAP test, the industry standard for crash safety.
