We are pleased to announce that AutoTrader's Car of the year has been announced as the SKODA Octavia. The award is decided by feedback collated from a survey of more than 40,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. The scores were totted up from all 16 areas for each model featured in the survey. This showed that the SKODA Octavia was the most satisfying car to own, all things considered.
Here are some of the comments Octavia owners told AutoTrader:
- “I love the speed and the car’s aesthetics. It’s all excellent to be quite honest.”
- “Feels solid and powerful, with the looks to match, and it’s excellent value for money.”
- “I am completely relaxed when driving. The safety features are so many, too many to mention.“
- “I am once again smiling at the end of a long drive.”
AutoTrader have also said: “It’s easy to see why Britain’s car owners have voted the SKODA Octavia as their overall New Car of the Year. The Octavia offers an incredibly appealing mix of practicality, quality and affordability, and it’s also good to drive, well-equipped, and full of clever features to make everyday life easier. As all-rounders go, they don’t get much better than this.”
