Continue reading as we explore Škoda Octavia and Superb and their accolades.
Estate Car of the Year: Škoda Superb Estate 1.5 TSI 150 SE L
The Superb Estate is widely known for being unbelievably spacious. Not only are you able to fit a staggering 11 carry-on suitcases without having to remove the parcel shelf, the Superb provides exceptional passenger comfort, allowing adults in the rear to stretch out, limo style.
“The Superb beats some extremely talented rivals to the Estate Car of the Year title, simply because it’s the best at being an estate. If you’ve elected to buy one instead of a saloon or hatchback, you’re likely to have made that decision on the basis of practicality, and the Superb outperforms all comers in that regard.” – What Car
Best Family Car for Practicality: Škoda Octavia 1.5 TSI 150 SE Technology
The Škoda Octavia has been crowned the ‘Best family car for practicality’ for the right reasons. It offers 640 litres of boot capacity with the rear seats up, and a huge 1,700 litres with the seats folded down, making it the best option for families who need extra space for luggage on family trips.
“There’s plenty of storage for everyone’s drinks bottles and phones inside, while the boot will swallow all their luggage with ease. We managed to fit in 10 carry-on suitcases – which is four more than most family cars can take. When you need even more load space, it’s easy to fold down the back seats (which split 60/40) by pulling levers in the boot.” – What Car
