Škoda Smart Configurator
Did you ever get completely lost in the list of car options? This list often contains hundreds of options and while some people get a kick out of configuring the car exactly like they want, there are others who feel this is wasted time. For these customers we started the Smart Configurator project together with Škoda.
The Smart Configurator uses previous sales and car configurator data to recommend specific cars or options for different users. The tool has two components:
1) It will recommend options that are often chosen or are chosen in combination with your current selection. For example, you can see that the digital cockpit is the most chosen option on a Škoda Kodiaq.
2) You can use the tool to discover what car matches your requirements. For instance, if you want a car that costs at most €45.000, has a diesel engine with manual gearbox and a sunroof you will get the most chosen car with these options. In addition, the tool will also give you the cheapest and most luxurious configuration.
The tool is live and can be tested for the Škoda KODIAQ via this link. Click the green box that says ‘Welke KODIAQ past bij mij?” and you will get a pop up screen.
