ŠKODA scoops four wins at the 2017 CarBuyer Awards


The yearly CarBuyer awards take a slightly different approach to your usual vehicle awards by offering categories in ‘Plain English’. Put simply, there’s less of the ‘executive/saloon/coupe’ awards and more of your ‘Best First Car’ and ‘Best Seven-Seater.’

We were very pleased to hear that the mighty ŠKODA took home no less than four awards this year, adding to the numerous awards they’ve had to fly back to HQ this year alone. In fact, if there was an award for winning awards, ŠKODA would win that one too!

First up came the little ŠKODA Citigo which won the ‘Best First Car’ category. The Citigo is the brand’s economical city car which is great on insurance costs, and offers more space than you might imagine.

Secondly, the ŠKODA Fabia took home the award for ‘Best Small Car’. The success and popularity of the current generation ŠKODA speaks for itself and it’s a great choice for those looking for a stylish, reliable hatchback with plenty of equipment options.

For the ‘Best Car for Under £150 a Month’ we introduce the Yeti, ŠKODA’s first SUV that is as at home off the road as it is on your way to the supermarket. UK drivers voted the Yeti the most satisfying car to own in the Auto Express Driver Power survey in 2012, 2013 and 2015.

Finally, in the category for ‘Best Estate Car’ we have the ŠKODA Superb Estate which offers all of the Simply Clever solutions you and your family could ever need. Carefully designed inside and out the Superb is a real pleasure to drive and comes in a range of trims including the luxurious Laurin & Klement.

Not forgetting the other brilliant brands in our family we have to praise the sleek SEAT Leon which picked up the award for Best Automatic Car and the sporty Audi A3 Cabriolet which takes home Best Convertible.
