Skoda Yeti wins new Honest John Top Award
The Skoda Yeti crossover has claimed No.1 'Car of the Year' spot in the inaugural Honest John awards, with the Škoda Octavia and Superb Estate also shortlisted. The popular new Yeti initially won the top honour in the Crossover category to make it eligible for the big prize… and then walked off with that, too. A spokesman said: "The Honest John awards are different to other honours because they’re not voted for by a panel of judges. Instead they come from the best experts of all – the website users. The awards recognise and reward the cars that visitors search for most on the site. Put simply, the road test reports which create the most interest among www.honestjohn.co.uk users are the winners." Daniel Harrison, Editor of www.honestjohn.co.uk, which gets 1.4 million hits a month, said: “The Škoda Yeti is a smash hit, attracting more interest over the past year than any other car. Current owners won't be surprised; they tell us they find it practical, solidly built, well equipped and hatchback-like in the way it drives. Interest in the Yeti is at an all-time high, which is particularly impressive when you consider it’s up against some strong competition, in both the Crossover and Car of the Year categories.” You can see a road test on the range-topping Yeti in www.roadmagazine.co.uk very soon... and find out what we think of the crossover.
