Volkswagen, SEAT and SKODA Drive into 2019 as WhatCar? Winners

It’s that time of year again, it’s What Car? Award season! There’s no bigger prize than a win at the annual What Car? Car of the Year Awards. This year we are incredibly proud to announce that we have won a whole host of awards! Let’s see who scooped first prize…

SKODA

The SKODA winning streak has continued as we drive into 2019 with two WhatCar? category wins and four price point victories – that’s an impressive six accolades! The SKODA Octavia was crowned ‘Family Car of the Year’ and the SKODA Superb was awarded ‘Estate Car of the Year’ for the fourth year in a row. Last, but not least, the Superb, Karoq, Citigo and Fabia also went on to win a price point award!

Here’s what Ian Jarvis, SKODA Sales Manager had to say:

“Winning a What Car? Car of the Year Award is the biggest accolade a car and car maker can get. SKODA cars are dynamic, interesting and simply clever – coupled with the Pulman fantastic customer experience, owning a SKODA just got even better!

SEAT

SKODA was not the only winner on the night. Two SEAT models have also claimed top category honours in the What Car? Awards 2019. The CUPRA Ateca won sports SUV of the year and the SEAT Arona won small SUV of the year (for the second consecutive year) at the What Car? Awards in London.

Alex Paget, SEAT site manager, said

“To be recognised by industry experts for our SUV models is fantastic, we are incredibly proud that SEAT and CUPRA were crowned winners at the 2019 WhatCar? Awards. We knew that the CUPRA Ateca was going to be a spectacular car, but when it was delivered to site we couldn’t wait to get it out on the road. The CUPRA Ateca is ready and waiting to hit the roads of Sunderland – why not pop along to Pulman SEAT for a test drive?”

Volkswagen

Volkswagen might of been late to the pick-up party when it launched the Amarok in 2010, but it was worth the wait! This year the Amarock was crowned overall winner in the Pick-up of the Year category.

Here’s what Keith Ramshaw, our Volkswagen Sales Manager had to say:

The Volkswagen Amarock is a fantastic car, and my go-to demonstrator all year round. It truly is a truck you can use every day, from a weekend away, to a trip to the supermarket!
