Achievements and trophies
Designers score big
The KAMIQ GT and the fourth-generation OCTAVIA won the prestigious Red Dot Award 2020 for outstanding product design. An international jury of four dozen experts made selections among 6,500 products in one of the most recognised design competitions in the world. ŠKODA’s best seller was highlighted for the third time – its previous generations were awarded in 2006 and 2017. The KAMIQ GT, available exclusively on the Chinese market, became the first such awarded ŠKODA model that the SAIC Volkswagen design team had worked on.
