Milton Keynes, 16th May 2014 – The honestjohn.co.uk awards are unique in that they’re not decided by expert judges. Instead they’re based on what the website’s users search for most. The fact ŠKODA has won two different awards proves how popular the brand is with real-world car buyers.
Dan Harrison, editor of honestjohn.co.uk, commented: “When it comes to choosing the perfect family car, few models can compete with the spaciousness and affordability that the ŠKODA Octavia offers.”
He added: “According to our users, the Octavia ticks all of the hatchback boxes, with high praise for its refinement and excellent range of efficient engines.”
Commenting on the ŠKODA Yeti’s victory in the ‘Crossover’ class, he said: “We're big fans of this car, it's one of the ones we recommend most to users. It's easy to recommend thanks to its compelling blend of family practicality, impressive engines and quirky style.”
The data used to make the awards is taken from Google Analytics. It calculates the number of page views each car review has had in the 12 months from April 2013 to April 2014. The site gets around 1.6 million visits every month, with the majority of these users viewing car reviews.
It’s the vRS that packs the mightiest punch ever: the new Octavia vRS 245 has just touched down in the UK. Delivering 245PS and 370Nm of torque, the new sporting flagship of the range launches with an equally headline-grabbing price that starts from £27,595.
ŠKODA customers are the happiest car owners in Britain, according to the UK's largest independent automotive customer satisfaction survey, Driver Power. The brand secured an incredible gold rush of awards in the Driver Power 2017 New Car Survey with the Superb and Yeti proving to be the star performers, taking first and second place in the overall Car of the Year ranking. The duo also took top honours in their respective segment categories, outscoring the competition in the survey's individual vehicle attribute sections. In total, ŠKODA was awarded 10 Gold, Silver and Bronze awards.
