In and emergency, you can always rely on a SKODA

-->
ŠKODA Emergency Service vehicles

Police vehicle, dog carrier, paramedic rapid response or fire support unit, ŠKODA’s versatility, reliability and performance now makes it the ideal choice when responding to 999 situations. ŠKODA vehicles are widely used in a range of operational Police roles with the ŠKODA Octavia vRS now adopted as an intermediate performance vehicle for response situations. The ŠKODA Superb has proven a hit with Armed Response divisions, providing ample room within the cabin for its crew to be transported at speed and arrive ready for action. The ŠKODA Octavia, Yeti, Rapid Spaceback and Fabia models all offer a tried and tested, reliable and affordable solution for general activity purposes too.

Skoda Octavia on top against Honda Type R Civic in Teesside.



AutoExpress recently put the new Honda Type R Civic, head to head with the class-leading ŠKODA Octavia (awarded WhatCar? Best Family Car for the second year running). AutoExpress choose the the advanced Honda 1.6 i-DTEC diesel model against the SKODA 1.6-litre diesel.

Both cars feature fuel-efficient driving modes with the SKODA being able to shift between Eco, Comfort and Sport modes.

Following the head-to-head, AuotExpress described the Octavia as,  “Still one of the best compact family hatchbacks on the market. It has a breadth of talent that’s hard to beat, thanks to its spacious cabin, vast boot, engaging driving dynamics and low running costs.”

So who came out on top? While the Civic was described as, "A decent compact hatch", there are too many compromises to be made for it to secure victory. "Back-seat space isn’t great, while the driving experience is a bit of a letdown when compared to the sharp and agile SKODA’s.”

Did you know we have sold and serviced SKODA for nearly 25 years on Teesside, and are the longest established SKODA dealer in the North East and still a family run business. Who else would you trust with your new SKODA. Plus, while the builders are still in, you'll find some very special offers on new and pre-owned SKODA. There's never been a better time to buy this summer from Derek Slack Motors.

SKODA dog seat-belt

SKODA has become one of the first manufacturers to produce a dog-specific seat belt as an accessory option on their vehicles. Described by SKODA as a serious ‘safety feature’, and with the majority of dogs often left unrestrained on the back seat becoming a distraction, the new K9 seat belt is long over due. The force of a 10lb dog in a car traveling at 30 miles per hour can exert a phenomenal 300lbs of force. So for dog lovers the new SKODA seat belt makes perfect sense. Available in four sizes with a protector to keep your upholstery free of hair, it can also be used in combination with a lead for dog training or walking.

ŠKODA grows 4.2% in first half of 2015 along with expansion in Middlesbrough.




As Derek Slack Motors move into the second phase of their expansion and redevelopment, ŠKODA also announce record growth throughout the first half of the year. Between January and June, deliveries to customers around the world increased 4.2% to 544,300 vehicles. Tony Slack, Managing Director at the ŠKODA dealership in Middlesbrough said, “This is yet another new sales record for ŠKODA in the first half of the year. The latest generation ŠKODA Fabia has also got off to an excellent start, in the first six months of 2015, with sales of the Fabia increasing by 24.3% .”

Derek Slack Motors (a family run business) have delivered SKODA for nearly 25 years and are the longest established SKODA dealer in the North East. The new state-of-the-art facility will be a flagship site for SKODA in the UK. 

Tony continued, “ Sales haven’t been affected by the building work, in fact we’ve enjoyed an excellent first half to the year, due to some money-saving, SKODA promotions on both new and used vehicles. Plus, you can now drive-away a brand new SKODA from across the range with interest free credit.”

With the builders in, space is at a premium and the main SKODA dealer for Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees, Hartlepool and Teesside have reduced their prices on many new and nearly new SKODA vehicles making this summer an ideal time to buy your next SKODA.
