 “The record result of 2016 highlights the fact that we increased the attractiveness of our brand last year with our young and modern model range,” announced ŠKODA CEO, Bernhard Maier. “We are increasingly able to inspire new customer groups, with emotional designs, the latest automotive technology and the many practical advantages of a ŠKODA. With a total of eleven model innovations, we will continue this trend in 2017. In particular, the market launch of the new SUV model ŠKODA KODIAQ is expected to provide further positive momentum for the brand in the first half of the year,” added Maier.

 The first look of the new large SUV ŠKODA KODIAQ in Berlin and its subsequent world premier debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show were the product highlights of 2016. “The Skoda Kodiaq marks the launch of a new broad-based campaign, bringing new growth potential to the brand,” said Skoda Board Member for Sales Werner Eichhorn.
