The ŠKODA Yeti is Car Dealer Magazine's Used Car Of The Year

Victory was a ‘unanimous decision’ after tough scrutiny by judges

The ŠKODA Yeti has scooped another major award, having been named used car of the year by Car Dealer magazine.

The Car Dealer Used Car honours take a host of factors into account as part of the judging process. In addition to car values after three years, the judging panel took data and feedback from dealers about the desirability of different models and how quickly they sold. After combining this with the verdicts of the magazine’s road test team and website users, the Yeti was declared to be head and shoulders above the competition.

Colin Channon, Editor of Car Dealer magazine, said: “The Yeti was a unanimous decision. The award was made not only on its ability, but also its desirability – both with users and our own test findings.”

This latest award adds to the Yeti’s impressive tally of used car industry accolades. It was named best used crossover in the 2015 Auto Express Used Car Awards and took top honours in the off-roader category in the 2015 Auto Express Driver Power survey. In total, the Yeti has won 25 industry titles in the UK alone since its launch in 2009.

Commenting on the Yeti’s latest honour, Nick O’Neill, National Used Car Sales Manager for ŠKODA UK, said: “The Yeti remains hugely popular with new and used car buyers and we’re delighted with this important award. Owners have consistently rated the Yeti as one of the most satisfying cars to own and this is reflected by strong demand in the used sector.”
