ŠKODA KAMIQ shortlisted for European AUTOBEST award

› ŠKODA City SUV nominated as one of five finalists for “Best Buy Car of Europe in 2020” title

› AUTOBEST jury composed of leading automotive journalists from 31 European countries

› Test drives on the Istanbul Formula One circuit in late November will determine the winner

Mladá Boleslav, 8 October 2019 – The ŠKODA KAMIQ has been nominated as one of the five

contenders for the “Best Buy Car of Europe in 2020” trophy. The winner of the annual title, first

awarded in 2001, is selected by a jury of leading automotive journalists from 31 European

countries. This year, the decision will be taken after final test drives with the shortlisted

vehicles on the former Turkish Formula One racing circuit, Intercity Istanbul Park, on 27 and 28

November. The winner will be announced in mid-December.

The European AUTOBEST organisation was founded in 2000 and has been awarding its annual

trophies since 2001. The current jury is composed of two female and 29 male journalists representing

31 European countries. Jury members each select three favourite vehicles from the five finalists, in

13 different categories – from exterior and interior design to practical usability, technologies, ecofriendliness

and price. The categories have different point scores, ranging from 100 to 500. The

winning vehicle is the one that achieves the highest score out of a maximum of 2,500 points. In 2002,

the ŠKODA FABIA was named “Best Buy Car of Europe”.

At 4.24 metres in length, the ŠKODA KAMIQ adds a new entry-level model to the Czech brand’s

successful SUV range, marking the car maker’s first foray into the growing city SUV segment. It

combines hallmark SUV benefits such as increased ride height and an elevated seating position with

the agility of a compact car and an emotive design. A true ŠKODA, the KAMIQs’ advanced assistance

and infotainment systems, the familiar generous amount of space and numerous Simply Clever ideas

make it a favourite with families as well as lifestyle-oriented customers.
