ŠKODA has beaten motoring’s elite to be voted the UK’s Number One car brand. The Czech manufacturer has Britain’s happiest and most satisfied owners, a survey found. More than 20,000 drivers were asked to rate their own cars on everything from reliability to build quality and running costs.
ŠKODA took the top manufacturer’s title and also had two cars in the top three individual models — with the Superb second and Octavia third. They overtook luxury brand Lexus after finishing second last year in the poll by Auto Express. ŠKODA’s UK boss Robert Hazelwood said: “The firm were delighted but not surprised by the award. “We put customers first in everything we do from design to quality and the reliability of our cars.” Jaguar’s XF saloon was voted overall Best Car.
The top five brands are: 1 ŠKODA; 2 Lexus; 3 Porsche; 4 Jaguar; 5 Honda. Top five models: 1 Jaguar XS; 2 ŠKODA Superb (pre-2008); 3 ŠKODA Octavia; 4 Landrover Discovery; 5 Lexus RX.
