Škoda grab 10 at Auto Express Used Car Awards

Škoda has scooped no fewer than ten class and category wins in the 2023 Auto Express Driver Used Car Awards – further reinforcing its reputation for delivering exceptional value and quality to buyers.

Now in its 22nd year, the Driver Power satisfaction survey is the biggest of its kind in the UK, with more than 70,000 drivers contributing more than 12 million data points for the 2023 edition. The survey allows owners to have their say on a wide range of subjects, from dealers to driving dynamics, and gives potential buyers valuable insight into what a particular model is like to own.

Once again, Škoda models appeared at the top of numerous categories, with the Karoq and Superb taking the largest share of wins. The Karoq, which was named Auto Express Used Car of the year in 2022, took Gold in the Best Used Mid to Large SUV in this year’s awards with owners praising its practicality and comfort. Adding to its haul, the SUV also took four category wins for Value, Practicality and Boot Space and Interior. It was also named as the Best Used Car for Infotainment, scooping the highest Gold rating from owners.

The Superb also confirmed its status as a buyer favourite, taking the Gold award as Best Used Family Car and winning three further category titles. The brand’s acclaimed hatch and estate topped the voting tables for Practicality and Boot Space, Safety and Value - seeing off more than 250 other models in the process.

Proving the age is no barrier to customer satisfaction, the iconic Yeti completed Škoda’s haul of Driver Power Used car honours, taking the bronze award for Exterior design.

Commenting on Škoda’s performance and wins, Editor-in-Chief Steve Fowler said: "It's clear that owners agree with us - when it comes to new or used cars, Škoda makes some of the best cars you can buy. The latest Driver Power Used Car Survey results prove how highly owners rate their cars with a whole host of wins across numerous categories, proving that owners' satisfaction lasts and lasts. And with a used Škoda on the Fowler family fleet, I can stand testament to how brilliant they are to own.”

High individual model and category scores helped the Škoda brand to achieve a 6th place finish (out of 32) in the car brand rankings.
