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.

Clare James Automotive Limited is an Appointed Representative of Automotive Compliance Ltd, who is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA No 497010). Automotive Compliance Ltd’s permissions as a Principal Firm allow Clare James Automotive Limited to act as a credit broker, not as a lender, for the introduction to a limited number of lenders and to act as an agent on behalf of the insurer for insurance distribution activities only.
We can introduce you to a selected panel of lenders, which includes Volkswagen Financial Services. An introduction to a lender does not amount to independent financial advice and we act as their agent for this introduction. Our approach is to introduce you first to Volkswagen Financial Services, who are usually able to offer the best available package for you, taking into account both interest rates and other contributions. If they are unable to make you an offer of finance, we then seek to introduce you to whichever of the other lenders on our panel is able to make the next best offer of finance for you. Our aim is to secure the best deal you are eligible for from our panel of lenders. Lenders may pay a fixed commission to us for introducing you to them, calculated by reference to the vehicle model or amount you borrow. Different lenders may pay different commissions for such introductions, and Volkswagen Financial Services also provide preferential rates to us for the funding of our vehicle stock and also provide financial support for our training and marketing. But any such amounts they and other lenders pay us will not affect the amounts you pay under your finance agreement, all of which are set by the lender concerned. If you ask us what the amount of commission is, we will tell you in good time before the Finance agreement is executed. All finance applications are subject to status, terms, and conditions apply, UK residents only, 18’s or over. Guarantees may be required.
