As families across Britain start planning for their September school run, many will be looking to Škoda in search of better value and lower fuel bills.

And as cost and fuel efficiency move to the top of the family car wish list, Škoda is giving away a free trim upgrade on its family-friendly Roomster, putting £1,000 back in its customers' pockets.

Until the end of September, mums and dads can take home the Roomster 2 for the price of the Roomster 1 or the Roomster 3 for the price of Roomster 2, or even a Roomster Scout for the price of a Roomster 3.

Škoda's clever MPV features bundles of space, impressive fuel economy and great visibility for passengers thanks to raised rear seats. Split into a driving room in the front and a spacious and airy living room in the rear, the Roomster is a fun car for drivers and passengers alike.

Oversized rear windows, panoramic sunroof and raised seating position help keep children engaged on trips to and from school but also on long journeys. The highly flexible rear seats can be reclined, moved or removed individually, meeting all its passengers' demands. This turns the car into a flexible load mover able to hold any weight and shape, from picnic baskets and camping equipment to bicycles and surf boards.

Roomster's efficient fuel consumption results in lower day-to-day running costs and reduced environmental impact. The Roomster 1.4TDI 80bhp can achieve up to 62.8mpg and emit just 139g/km of CO2, providing a cheaper, cleaner drive.

Robert Hazelwood, Brand Director of Škoda UK comments: "We like to offer ‘that extra bit of car' and take pride in the fact that our customers get more for their money. The Roomster is a great family car and now has even more appealing trims and gadgets at no extra cost."

Until the end of September every Roomster qualifies for a low rate Solutions plan from Škoda Finance at 6.9% APR typical for up to 42 months, with a minimum deposit of just one month's payment in advance. A choice of either free servicing for three years or 30,000 miles (whichever comes first), or one year of free insurance are also part of the deal.
