Fleet customers get first look at all-new Fabia

The event, held at the Silverstone Circuit, provided delegates and Skoda customers with the opportunity to test-drive the third-generation Fabia, which was recently named the What Car? Car of the Year 2015.

Guests were also given the chance to test drive the Octavia vRS on Silverstone’s Stowe Complex track and a 4×4 driving experience with the Skoda Yeti Outdoor and Octavia Scout models on an off-road course.

Patrick McGillycuddy, head of fleet at Skoda UK, commented: ‘It was a fantastic opportunity for our customers, both new and old, to have a hands-on experience with our range of award-winning models. Our vehicles are defined by their individual characters, so for us there was no better venue than Silverstone to showcase what the new Fabia, Yeti and Octavia have to offer.

‘Skoda UK’s fleet division would like to thank all of our guests who joined us on the day. It was great to see so many familiar faces and, from the feedback we have received so far, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to put our class-leading products through their paces,’ said McGillycuddy.

The Fabia range was launched at Skoda retailers across the UK at the end of last month with prices starting from just £10,600 OTR.
