ŠKODA has once again proven that great value, reliability and practicality are a winning combination for used car buyers by scooping a hat-trick of WhatCar? Used Car awards. The Citigo, Fabia and Yeti were all named as the best in their respective age groups – impressing the judges with their unbeatable value for money.
Among the most respected in the industry, the WhatCar? Used Car awards take into account a wide range of buyer budgets and draw on a vast database of road test findings. In addition to the 15 different classes of car – from city cars to luxury SUVs – the judging panel divided each class into age segments.
The Citigo was named the Best Used City Car in the four-to-six-year-old age bracket. Alex Robbins, Used Cars Editor at WhatCar? said: “"The Citigo has always been one of our favourite city cars, and these early examples now make fantastic used buys. They're superb value, and offer a sense of quality that few rivals can offer. Throw in the Citigo's impressive showing in our Reliability Survey, and it's easy to see why the Citigo makes so much sense."
Further up the size scale, the Fabia was also a winner - named Best Used Small Car in the one-to-three-year-old age bracket. A former WhatCar? New Car of the Year, the Fabia impressed the judging panel with its remarkable value for money, generous equipment levels and broad range of engines. Completing ŠKODA’s hat trick, the Yeti was named the Best Used Small SUV in the seven-to-10-year-old age bracket. Robbins said: “Compared with its rivals, the Yeti is great value and well equipped, and you get a great choice of efficient engines and well-equipped trim levels. You get a heap of space and versatility, too, thanks to that vast boot and clever tumbling rear seats. "
ŠKODA’s latest used car awards add to a growing collection that highlights the long-term value for money that the brand’s models deliver. The Yeti has won three key awards for its performance on the used car market, including Used Car of the Year by Auto Express magazine earlier this year.
