New Fabia to build on Skoda Driver Power dominance
Our Driver Power survey results predict a great ownership experience with the new Skoda Fabia
One of the great things about running a Skoda is knowing that the ownership experience is likely to be problem-free. And that looks certain to continue with the all-new Fabia.
Over the years, the company has excelled in customer satisfaction surveys, including Auto Express’s very own Driver Power poll.
In 2014, more than 50,000 readers took part in Driver Power, rating their models in 10 key areas – reliability, build quality, running costs, performance, road handling, ride quality, ease of driving, seat comfort, practicality and in-car tech.
And the results were as emphatic as they possibly could be, with Skoda cars occupying the top three places. Topping the poll was the Yeti, which was also voted the easiest car to drive. In second was the Citigo, which was ranked best for low running costs. And in third place was the Superb.
What’s more, Skoda was named the best car manufacturer overall in Driver Power 2014, which augurs well for Fabia buyers. The brand’s cars were rated the best on the market for running costs, in-car tech and practicality - three areas in particular where the new model excels.
Of course, the buying process and aftersales care also form a big part of the ownership experience, and here too Fabia customers will be well catered for.
Driver Power 2014 found that the Skoda dealer network was the fourth best overall in the entire country, and ranked third for value for money – an important consideration for anyone about to buy a new car.
All in all, it adds up to a supermini that you can rely on in every respect.
