Skoda Octavia is our Green Apple 2017 winner

The Skoda Octavia has taken top honours at the 2017 Green Apple Awards.

The awards, presented at the House of Commons, are organised by the Midlands-based The Green Organisation and judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers. They single out cars that are both good to drive and economical in the real world.

One of the judges said of the Skoda Octavia: “Fantastic value for money with a car that offers unprecedented cabin space in this league. Well finished, well-appointed and some exceptionally economical engines that deliver on all fronts.”

The Octavia went on to take the Green Apple champion title having first clinched the category for larger family cars.
