The all-new, fourth-generation Škoda Octavia has swept the board at the 2020 Auto Express New Car Awards, taking home two category wins and the overall Car of the Year title. The Octavia comprehensively outscored and outperformed a host of high-profile newcomers to take top spots in every category it was eligible for.
The Octavia’s two category wins came in the fiercely competitive compact family car and estate car categories. Škoda recorded its fifth win in succession with the fourth-generation Octavia taking over from the previous model and delivering a seamless supply of Škoda silverware.
The Octavia hatch was crowned compact family car 2020 by the Auto Express judging panel. The new Superb was also named family car of the year, reclaiming a title it last won in 2017.
