The recently launched Skoda Yeti has received a BBC Top Gear Magazine Award.
Top Gear, one of the industry's most recognised and respected publications, named the Skoda Yeti as its 'Family Car of the Year'. In its 10th year, the Top Gear Awards run across 24 international editions and recognise the most exciting and innovative cars launched in the last 12 months.
The winners were selected by Top Gear's TV, online and magazine teams and Conor McNicholas, the magazine's editor explained why the recently introduced Skoda Yeti crossover has won over the hearts of Top Gear:
"The Yeti has been an instant hit with the Top Gear magazine office," he said. "We love the styling, the handling, the quality, the space, the clever touches and yes, the name. If you're looking for a family car it should be top of your list to check out, simple as that. The Yeti feels like part of the Top Gear family."
Starting at just £13,775, the Skoda Yeti was launched in the UK in September 2009 and combines all the strengths of a traditional 4x4, such as a higher ride height, safety and security, with the practicality and running costs of a hatchback - a perfect crossover vehicle for the family driver.Published 8 December 2009
