May 29, 2014: ŠKODA remains in fourth position in the annual What Car? / JD Power Survey The Czech manufacturer has been in the top 10 brands for over 20 years Yeti secures third overall place and triumphs in the SUV category

Milton Keynes, 29 May 2014 – It’s another excellent result for ŠKODA in the respected annual JD Power satisfaction survey. The manufacturer scored a top five position in the brand rankings, with two models inside the top 10 vehicles and one overall class win.

This latest success means that ŠKODA has been inside the JD Power Survey’s top 10 manufacturers for more than 20 years without a break – a truly impressive result.

Alasdair Stewart, Brand Director for ŠKODA UK, commented: “The JD Power survey is acknowledged throughout the automotive world as a benchmark standard for customer satisfaction. For ŠKODA to have been in the top 10 for over 20 years is outstanding, and tribute to the hard work of everyone associated with the brand.”

ŠKODA came fourth overall in the brand rankings for 2014, just as it did last year. It remains a fantastic achievement considering the top three spots are all held by premium marques.

Also repeating its success of 2013 was the ŠKODA Yeti compact SUV, which was placed third out of 109 ranked cars and took the overall title in the SUV category. The judges commented: “Owners like the spacious cabin and that they can get in and out of it easily. The raised driving height and large windows mean that the driver’s view of the road is very good, too.”

The ŠKODA Octavia came 7th overall, with the Superb in 15th position.

Judged by thousands of car owners who live with their vehicles day-to-day, JD Power is one of the most influential and eagerly anticipated reports in UK motoring. The results are published in the July edition of What Car? magazine or you can view online at
