Skoda Wins Big At Awards Ceremony
To say that to everyone who works at Lightcliffe is a fan of the brand is an understatement. Through driver experience or working on the cars themselves all the team have grown to passionately love these cars…..and it seems like we are not alone.
At a round of recent awards ceremonies Škoda scooped no fewer than ten class and category wins in both WHAT CAR? and Auto Express Driver Used Car Awards – further reinforcing its reputation for delivering exceptional value and quality to buyers.
Now in its 22nd year, the Driver Power satisfaction survey is the biggest of its kind in the UK, with more than 70,000 drivers contributing more than 12 million data points for the 2023 edition. The survey allows owners to have their say on a wide range of subjects, from dealers to driving dynamics, and gives potential buyers valuable insight into what a particular model is like to own.
Once again, Škoda models appeared at the top of numerous categories, with the Karoq and Superb taking the largest share of wins. The Karoq, which was named Auto Express Used Car of the year in 2022, took Gold in the Best Used Mid to Large SUV in this year’s awards with owners praising its practicality and comfort. Adding to its haul, the SUV also took four category wins for Value, Practicality and Boot Space and Interior. It was also named as the Best Used Car for Infotainment, scooping the highest Gold rating from owners.
The Superb also confirmed its status as a buyer favourite, taking the Gold award as Best Used Family Car and winning three further category titles. The brand’s acclaimed hatch and estate topped the voting tables for Practicality and Boot Space, Safety and Value - seeing off more than 250 other models in the process.
And finally, proving that age is no barrier to customer satisfaction, the iconic Yeti completed Škoda’s haul of Driver Power Used car honours, taking the bronze award for Exterior design.
In the busy world of the automotive industry, it’s always very easy to believe your own PR. So when the rest of the world starts to agree with you it’s incredibly satisfying.
