Auto Express success!


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.’

At Volkswagen, our teams are celebrating the success of the latest Golf and the up! city car, who won Compact Family Car of the Year and City Car of the Year respectively.

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.’
