Delighted drivers give ŠKODA triple victory in annual Driver Power satisfaction survey

22/04/2015
ŠKODA customers have once again confirmed that the Czech brand makes some of the most satisfying cars to own, with three class wins in the annual Auto Express Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.

Milton Keynes, 22nd April 2015 – The 2015 Auto Express Driver Power survey attracted 61,113 respondents who were asked to judge their car in a number of key areas, from ride quality to practicality. The ŠKODA Yeti stormed to the top of the Best Off-road/SUV category, making it four class wins in a row. The ŠKODA Roomster took victory in the Best MPV category, and customers voted the ŠKODA Superb the Best Family Car.

Steve Fowler, Editor-in-Chief of Auto Express said: “ŠKODA has been a consistent winner in our Driver Power surveys, and 2015 is no different. SUV buyers are a demanding lot, but the Yeti is clearly loved by owners. And despite their age, the Roomster and Superb winning their categories shows that owners don’t fall out of love with their ŠKODAs.”

Commenting on the 2015 Driver Power results, Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for ŠKODA UK said: “This is another great result for ŠKODA. We’re delighted that our customers are so passionate about their cars. We’ve already introduced some great new products this year, in the shape of the Fabia Hatch and Estate, and with the new Superb arriving in the UK this summer we’ve got more great vehicles to delight customers.”

The award-winning Yeti and Superb are available in ŠKODA retailers now, while the all-new ŠKODA Superb goes on sale in the UK this summer, priced from £18,640 OTR.

ŠKODA is making the SUPERB an even more tempting proposition for buyers thanks to the introduction of a new SportLine Plus model and a raft of extra equipment for the SUPERB. The range expansion celebrates the incredible success of the SUPERB in the UK, and further distances ŠKODA’s award winning hatch and estate from the sector competition.
Backseat bickering and sibling squabbles have been an on-going issue for parents since the invention of children. But now, thanks to the introduction of an innovative noise-cancelling front seat headrest, parents can enjoy their journeys and concentrate on driving.
ŠKODA has launched the next instalment of its Driven by Something Different series, featuring British recording artist, Paloma Faith.
ŠKODA continues to go from strength to strength in the fleet arena with a duo of awards added to the trophy cabinet last night. The ŠKODA Superb retained its title of Best Upper Medium Car for the third-year running whilst new-comer, the Karoq, entered the fleet sector in style picking up the title of Best Mid-size SUV.
ŠKODA AUTO delivered 92,800 vehicles to customers worldwide in February, an increase of 14.3% compared to the same period of the previous year (February 2017: 81,200 vehicles), and the best February result in its 123-year history. The Czech carmaker posted particularly strong growth in China (+30.6%), Germany (+17.6%), Russia (+38.6%) and Turkey (+79.3%). In addition to the international bestseller OCTAVIA, the two SUV models KAROQ and KODIAQ also made significant contributions to the strong overall result.
ŠKODA hosted a secret gig last night to celebrate its partnership with renowned recording artist, Paloma Faith. Around 500 fans were treated to an intimate performance that included songs from her new album, The Architect, at The Round Chapel in Hackney, London.
