ŠKODA Yeti triumphs again as Car Dealer names its 2015 Used Car of the Year

30/11/2015
The ŠKODA Yeti has scooped yet another key industry award, having just been named Used Car of the Year by Car Dealer Magazine. The award was announced at the publication’s annual Used Car of the Year ceremony held at The Brewery in central London.

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.

ŠKODA is already known for its ability to build fantastically strong, safe and reliable cars. But now, following three-years of planning, development and testing, ŠKODA has added to its award-winning range with the addition of a bullet and blast-resistant version of the SUPERB Estate.

ŠKODA can look back on another record month: For the first time in its history, the Czech car manufacturer delivered more than 100,000 vehicles to customers in an April. With 107,100 vehicles, ŠKODA’s deliveries exceeded those of the same month last year by 10.1% (April 2017: 97,300 vehicles). In the world's largest sales market, China, the brand achieved an increase of 34%, and ŠKODA also achieved double digit growth in Eastern Europe and Russia. The SUV models KODIAQ (+164.4%) and KAROQ in particular made significant contributions to the success.
The ŠKODA Live Tour has racked up an impressive first year of results and the car manufacturer has announced that it will continue to explore new ways of using the technology. More than 2,000 online tours have been taken in the digital showroom, with three-quarters of users completely new customers to the brand.
ŠKODA has once again proved itself to be the brand to beat by dominating the 2018 DieselCar and EcoCar Top 50. The Czech brand was named as class winner in no fewer than four key categories and topped more sectors than any other manufacturer in the influential annual chart.
Motoring review site Honest John has named the ŠKODA KODIAQ its overall 2018 Car of the Year – adding another trophy to the Czech SUV’s remarkable collection. In addition to awarding the KODIAQ its highest honour, Honest John website visitors also named the SUPERB as its Family Car of the Year for the second year in succession.
ŠKODA AUTO continues its growth course. Never before has the Czech traditional brand achieved such a strong result in terms of sales revenue, deliveries and operating profit between January and March. The manufacturer delivered 316,700 vehicles worldwide (+ 11.7%). Operating profit increased by 5.3% to 437 million euros in the same period, while sales revenue increased by 4.9% to 4.5 billion euros.
