Volkswagen Group Take Home Quintuple Awards At Auto Express Awards

Volkswagen, SKODA and SEAT have all received fantastic awards at the 2019 Auto Express Awards…

The Auto Express awards took place on the 9th July 2019 and the Volkswagen Group (VAG) brands won a number of awards! At Pulman we are proud to offer these models, let’s take a look below to see which trophies are shining brightly in the cabinets! 

Volkswagen

City Car of the year: Volkswagen Up!

Retaining the crown since 2018 the Volkswagen Up! Was awarded the city car of the year! The Up! May look small on the outside, but the compact hatch offers a lot of room inside for both driver and passengers. The Up! Is easy to drive; it’s lightweight which gives good body control, grip and agility making driving fun! Even though the Up! Has been awarded the city car of the year, it’s perfect for long motorway journeys too with claimed fuel economy of up to 67mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 95g/km, it’s a cost-effective car to run as it is to purchase.

SKODA

Compact Family Car of the year: SKODA SCALA

Fresh to the market and already showing the other brands how it’s done is the SKODA Scala with the compact family car of the year award. The Scala is very affordable starting from only £18,045* and offers plenty of space for the whole family in both the front and rear seats and a boot space of 467 litres. There is plenty of features included, even on the SE trim, including 8” touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, parking sensors, cruise control, air conditioning, Bluetooth, DAB and more is all included in the attractive price tag!

Mid-size SUV of the year: SKODA Karoq

The SKODA brand as a whole is known for providing very practical and great value for money cars, but aside from that the Karoq is a perfect all-rounder which is why it won the mid-size SUV of the year award! With a wide range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines offering both efficiency and performance, there will be a trim for you. The Karoq drives well both off-road and on tarmac thanks to its comfortable suspension set-up steering and good visibility. Standard features include Smartlink+ (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink), dual-zone climate control, cruise control, Bolero radio with 8 speakers and voice control and much more!

Estate Car of the year: SKODA Octavia Estate

The new SKODA Octavia Estate is built with versatility in mind which is why was awarded the estate car of the year! Offering 610 litres of boot space (1,740 litres with rear seats folded down) the luggage capacity is larger than its rivals, and in return offers more flexibility than the other estate cars. The facelift in 2017 also brought updated styling and a more advanced infotainment set-up with all trims coming equipped with an 8” touchscreen as standard and SmartLink+ (including Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Mirrorlink) so you can be connected whilst on the road! So with the facelift combined with the practicality, we can see why the SKODA Octavia Estate was a clear winner!

The Tarraco offers up to seven seats which is perfect if you’re a family looking to upgrade your car for more room; if you’re a five-person family the rearmost row seats can be folded down offering a huge 700 litre boot space!
