Derek Slack Motors, main dealers for Skoda in the North East, are excited to announce the winner of Auto Express - ‘Car of the Year’ as none other than the Skoda Yeti. The unanimous choice was described by the judging panel as a ‘car that blends the looks of a compact MPV, but doesn’t demand the dynamic or financial compromises usually associated with either.’
They added, ‘the Skoda Yeti mixes tough Tonka toy looks, sharp handling and a high quality and spacious cabin with the brand’s famed value-for-money pricing and customer service. Its brilliant engine line-up ranges from the entry-level 1.2 TSi (arguably the sweetest of the lot (to a 168bhp 2.0-litre diesel, and buyers can also choose between two-wheel-drive or 4x4 models. In addition, the VW Group’s excellent twin-clutch DSG transmission is available as an option.’
‘Best of all is the price, as the Yeti range kicks off at less than £14,000. In a year that has seen the arrival of some truly special new cars, the Skoda Yeti is a worthy winner of Auto Express’ overall crown.’
A great accolade for a great car. If you haven’t yet test driven the Skoda Yeti, then call into our Middlesbrough dealership on A66 Cargo Fleet Middlesbrough TS3 8AR.
