SKODA has scooped three sought-after awards at the 2015 Auto Express Used Car of the Year Awards.
The SKODA Yeti was crowned 'Used Car of The Year' and won the 'Best Crossover Award', whilst the Czech carmakers's Citigo was selected as the winner of the City Car category.
The judging panel cited the Yeti's reputation for value, acclaimed ownership experience, reliability and practicality when presenting the awards, and also highlighted its three Auto Express Driver Power Customer Satisfaction wins and highly rated retailer network.
Auto Express Editor-in-Chief, Steve Fowler commented "There's nothing mythical about the appeal of SKODA's practical crossover. The Yeti has more than proven itself as a new car, and today it's more desirable than ever as a second-hand buy, which is why it's our 2015 Used Car of the Year."
The Citigo was chosen as a class winner due to its exceptionally low running costs, quality and spacious cabin. The small, practical car has previously won four consecutive New Car Awards in the same category.
National Used Car Manager for SKODA UK, Nick O'Neill added: "These Used Car Awards demonstrate the incredible long term appeal of our range. SKODA cars are brilliant buys for anyone wanting great-quality, value-for-money used cars and we're delighted to receive these latest accolades."
