ŠKODA models shine in Auto Express Driver Power survey
Octavia voted best family car, with Citigo and Fabia among the highest-rated cars
ŠKODA models have triumphed in the 2016 Auto Express Driver Power customer satisfaction survey, taking six leading positions and ranking among the top 25 in several of the categories. The brand was also voted third best in the UK to own.
More than 49,000 car buyers took part in the Auto Express Driver Power survey, which covered 183 models and 32 manufacturers.
Octavia came first in the Compact Family Car class, as well as being rated the seventh-best car in the whole survey. Owners were impressed with the car’s practicality (which was rated third in this area), in-car technology (voted ninth), low running costs, reliability and performance.
Two ŠKODA models featured among the survey’s top five superminis, with the Citigo coming second and Fabia fourth. The Citigo was also named eleventh-best car in the overall survey..
The previous-generation Superb proved a big hit with car buyers, taking the silver medal in the Family Car category, while the Yeti performed strongly in the hotly contested Off-Road/SUV category, finishing sixteenth.
These latest accolades from private owners are welcome additions to the ŠKODA trophy cabinet in 2016, which already contains two UK Car of the Year gongs for Superb Hatch and Estate as well as a hat-trick at the What Car? awards earlier this year.
