ŠKODA Victories: All-Wheel-Drive Cars of the Year Award

We’re adding a few more trophies to the case: The ŠKODA OCTAVIA, SUPERB, and ENYAQ iV have been crowned winners in “All-Wheel Drive Car of the Year” awards.

Press release:

Triple victory for ŠKODA: The readers of ‘Auto Bild Allrad’ have voted three of the car manufacturer’s models as ‘All-Wheel Drive Cars of the Year’. The AWD ENYAQ iV hit the ground running, winning the all-wheel-drive category for imported cars in its first appearance. The OCTAVIA 4×4 took first place in the import category of ‘four-wheel drive cars under 40,000 euros’ while the SUPERB 4×4 went all the way to the top in the imported ‘four-wheel drive cars over 40,000 euros’ category. This is the sixth award for the OCTAVIA in the readers’ poll, and the SUPERB now claims the title for the twelfth time.

The ŠKODA OCTAVIA took first place as the best-imported car in its class in 2014, 2015, 2019, and 2020. Last year, the model also secured overall victory in the ‘All-wheel drive passenger cars up to 40,000 euros’ category. This year’s success brings the OCTAVIA 4×4 to a total of six victories in the well-respected readers’ poll. The second-generation ŠKODA SUPERB consistently took first place among the import winners in its class from 2009 to 2013. In 2015, the current generation of the model continued this success story. Readers also voted the SUPERB the best import vehicle in its category between 2016 and 2020. Its victory this year marks the twelfth time the mid-class model has won the All-Wheel Drive Readers’ Choice title.
