London, Apr 16 (ANI): Skoda has beaten motoring’s elite to be voted the UK’s number one car brand and British-built Jaguar XF became the most satisfying new car to own.
The Czech manufacturer has Britain’s happiest and most satisfied owners, according to a survey. Skoda took the top manufacturer’s title and also had two cars in the top three individual models with the Superb second and Octavia third.
Jaguar’s new saloon took the top spot in its debut year, seeing off the challenge from Skoda’s Superb, and last year’s winner, the Octavia. A broad cross-section of drivers rated the XF’s combination of luxury, comfort and driving dynamics above all others.
More than 20,000 drivers were asked to rate their own cars on everything from reliability to build quality and running costs, The Sun reported.
Skoda overtook luxury brand Lexus after finishing second last year in the poll by Auto Express.
The top five brands are: 1 Skoda; 2 Lexus; 3 Porsche; 4 Jaguar; 5 Honda.
Top five models: 1 Jaguar XS; 2 Skoda Superb (pre-2008); 3 Skoda Octavia; 4 Landrover Discovery; 5 Lexus RX. (ANI)
