Ahmed Zayani launching new Skoda models in Bahrain
Ahmed Zayani & Sons, exclusive agents for Škoda auto in the Kingdom of Bahrain, unveiled the latest generation of the Škoda Octavia and Superb at a launch held at their showroom in Zinj.
After being formally unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the new Škoda Octavia, with its elegant, timeless design, advanced technology and excellent value for money, is sure to be a sensation in Bahrain.
The design of the new car reinforces it as a member of Škoda’s ever-popular line-up with redesigned lines along the front and rear of the vehicle to give the car a more refined yet sophisticated elegance.
Commenting on the latest Octavia model to arrive in Bahrain, Jeffrey Barrett, General Manager, Automotive division, Ahmed Zayani & Sons said, “the Škoda Octavia is sure to enthral customers in Bahrain. Elegant but with a powerful engine, the new Octavia will wow anyone who takes it out for a spin.”
The Octavia’s new 1.8-litre turbocharged engine mated to the smooth 7-speed DSG gearbox gives a staggering performance along with excellent fuel economy. Improving driving comfort in Bahrain’s city traffic, it is equally adaptable to highway driving accelerating to 100 kph in 7.8 seconds with a maximum speed of 223 kph.
“The revolutionary new Škoda Superb is a huge leap forward in Škoda’s product line-up. Never has a car offered such a comprehensive list of features in this segment and price range,”
The Škoda Superb’s award winning ‘park assist’ system is sure to make parallel parking around Bahrain’s roads much easier. With the push of a button the park assist will automatically assess the proposed parking space. Then with the car in reverse, the superb will automatically coordinate the steering angle in accordance with the input of the intelligent sensors and the Maxi DOT display. Customers can marvel as the new Superb accurately parks itself.
Passenger wellbeing is of paramount concern to Škoda. Their enhanced safety features in both the Škoda Octavia and Superb aim to give customers the thrill of driving a car that is fast yet safe.
“Abiding by the motto of the Škoda founders ‘Only the best for our clients,’ Ahmed Zayani has pulled out all the stops for these two cars and encourages people to come in for a test drive,” concluded Jeffrey.
