Milton Keynes, 30 November 2015 - The Car Dealer Used Car honours take a host of factors into account as part of the judging process. In addition to retained value after three years, the judging panel took data and feedback from dealers with regard to days to sell and desirability. After combining this information with the verdicts of the magazine’s road test team and website users, the Yeti was declared to be head and shoulders above the competition.
Colin Channon, Editor of Car Dealer magazine said: “The Yeti was a unanimous decision this year. The award was made not only on its ability, but also its desirability – both with users and our own test findings.”
This latest award adds to the Yeti’s impressive tally of used car industry accolades. It was named Best Used Crossover in the 2015 Auto Express Used Car Awards and also took top honours in the Off-Roader category in the 2015 Auto Express Driver Power survey. In total, the Yeti has won 25 key industry titles in the UK alone since its introduction in 2009.
Commenting on the Yeti’s latest honour, Nick O’Neill, National Used Car Sales Manager for ŠKODA UK said: “The Yeti remains hugely popular with new and used car buyers and we’re delighted with this important award. Owners have consistently rated the Yeti as one of the most satisfying cars to own and this is reflected by strong demand in the used sector.”
The ŠKODA Approved Used Car Event is running until 4 December, with used Yeti’s up to two years old available with £1,000 deposit contribution, two years warranty and roadside assistance. For more information contact a local ŠKODA retailer or visit www.skoda.co.uk/used.
The new Kodiaq, Superb and Octavia proved an unbeatable trio as ŠKODA took home three category wins at the 2017 Auto Express New Car Awards and a special award for its Reconnection advertising campaign. The awards were made at the title’s annual ceremony in central London, where the judging panel praised ŠKODA’s winning models for their quality, practicality and value for money.
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.
