Skoda Octavia named as best selling car in Sligo for 2015

The ever popular Skoda Octavia has come from being the second best selling car in 2014 to being the number one best selling car in Sligo in 2015 according to recent statistics released by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI).

The Octavia model is ahead of other popular models such as the IX35, Corolla and the Golf which highlights the Octavia's popularity among Sligo motorists.

The Skoda brand as a whole proved very popular in Sligo being the fifth best selling car brand in the county in 2015.

The statistics for Skoda really should come as no surprise, all we have to do is take a look around, Skoda is very popular in Sligo, check out your neighbours’ car, chances are …. It’s a Skoda.

The Octavia has progressed phenomenally since its humble beginnings back in 1996 as a small family car.

Since then there has been three generations of Octavia and a couple of facelifts along the way.

It has to be said, Octavia ticks all the boxes: value for money, practicality, comfort, safety, spacious, handles well, economical, good fuel consumption and it’s handsome.

Therefore, it’s no wonder they are the most sought after model for the motorists of Sligo.

The Octavia offers a range of choices in engine capacity from 1.2 to 2.0litre in both petrol and diesel; needless to say the 1.6 TDI is most popular for its performance and torque.

To enhance appeal to the sporty drivers, Octavia is available in the RS model version – a Sports car that meets the demands of everyday family life.
