Skoda Yeti Named 'Best Performing Used Car Of The Year' At Car Dealer Magazine Awards
MILTON KEYNES, UNITED KINGDOM – Dec 6, 2013: The ŠKODA Yeti has been named the ‘Best Performing Used Car of the Year’ at the Car Dealer Magazine Used Car Awards sponsored by Black Horse. The publication’s annual prestigious ceremony, which was held at The Brewery in London, recognises the achievements of automotive manufacturers and retailers in the motor trade.
Every vehicle shortlisted by Car Dealer magazine was evaluated in collaboration with a jury made up of leading valuations experts in the industry who selected models based on their residual values at three years of age or 36,000 miles. The highly acclaimed Yeti topped the category thanks to its combination of minimal depreciation and popularity amongst buyers in the second hand market. Furthermore, the spacious and stylish crossover offers motorists a low carbon footprint coupled with a high level of fuel economy, reliability and versatility.
James Batchelor, Editor of Car Dealer said: “The ŠKODA Yeti has been hot since it was launched with customers lining up to get their hands on one. That desirability has translated to the used car sector too – with dealers reporting that examples of this car don’t hang around for long.
“It looks great, is built well and impressively holds onto over 67 per cent of its value after three years.”
Chris Horrell, Product Marketing Manager forŠKODA UK, comments: “We are honoured to have received the award from Car Dealer magazine. This rounds off a very successful year for new and used Yeti vehicles. Residual values have continued to remain strong.
“Yeti has been highly sought after as the model provides a highly attractive package for those in search of excellent value for money, practicality and long-term durability with an eye-catching design to match.”
