The yearly Auto Express awards are a big deal in the industry, and with such a wide range of categories they really do pull in the best-of-the-best from the current car market.
A win at the Auto Express awards is, therefore, a great success and proves just how much a particular model has had an impact since its release. We were thrilled to hear that Volkswagen and ŠKODA both picked up a handful of awards each, proving that, here at Vindis, there really is an award-winning vehicle to suit every family. Let’s take a look at our winners…
At ŠKODA, both of the brand’s SUVs took home a win with the Kodiaq winning Large SUV of the year, and the smaller Karoq taking home Mid-size SUV of the year. Offering exceptional value for money, high levels of driver satisfaction, reliability and stand-out design, opting for an award winning ŠKODA SUV could be perfect decision for your family.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief of Auto Express wrote, ‘After taking its maiden victory at our 2017 New Car Awards, the Kodiaq has reinforced its credentials over the last 12 months to take the title again thanks to its impressive mix of ride and handling, refinement, usability and affordability.’
Not to be outdone by the bigger models in the range, the Octavia Estate retained its Estate Car of the Year title, impressing the judges with ‘remarkable practicality and comfort.’
The Golf remains Volkswagen’s biggest selling model and with such an iconic history it’s not hard to understand why. With punchy engines and big-car technology, the Golf remains a firm favourite both with our teams and customers alike! Have you test driven the new Golf yet?
Finally, the up! city car took its win after impressing Auto Express judges one again with its all-round charm. Steve Fowler commented, ‘It remains a strikingly grown-up little car that’s affordable to buy and run, great fun to drive and offers a clever approach to in-car connectivity.’

All vehicles that are sold by the Vindis Group are subject to an administrative / preparation fee of £90 inc VAT. For new vehicles this charge covers the cost of mechanically preparing the vehicle for delivery, the administration of new ownership documentation and final preparation for customer handover.
For used vehicles, this charge covers a full history and provenance check prior to being advertised for sale ensuring no financial risk or charge has been levied against the vehicle, that the vehicle has never been written off or stolen and final preparation for customer handover.
Vindis Group believe this level of preparation is crucial in ensuring we provide the highest level of customer satisfaction, for which the Vindis Group is renowned for.
For this reason, and in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, as of 6.00pm 23/03/2020 we made the decision to temporarily close all Vindis showrooms to members of the public. Whist we know this may cause some disappointment, our priority is to protect the well-being of our employees and customers in line with the latest Government guidance. For customers due to take delivery of your new vehicle we will be in contact and will aim to complete your transaction in a safe and compliant manner.
For those customers that are booked in for Aftersales care, all bookings other than those for Key Workers (as identified by the Government’s latest listings), urgent MOT’s and breakdowns are in the process of being cancelled; and each existing booking will have been confirmed with our team in advance of your visit to site. For other routine service and maintenance items, we will be in touch to re-arrange your booking for as soon as we re-open.
In order to facilitate the above, and in order to protect both you and our staff, our dealerships will be locked for the foreseeable future, and so upon arrival, please follow the instructions on the door in order to gain access. Additionally, it is vital that we ask that you do not attend any of our sites without having had a clear and specific communication that you qualify under one of the above guidelines, and we thank you in advance for complying with this difficult and possibly disruptive decision. Please also note that we have amended our service opening hours during this period to 08:30 – 17:30 Monday to Friday and closed during weekends.
Finally, although our showrooms are closed, should you wish to contact us we would be delighted to help you remotely in anyway possible; the best methods in which to contact us is either via email or through the live chat function found on our main Vindis Group website.
Please stay safe through this unprecedented period and we know that by working together, we will come through this stronger.
