Skoda Yeti and Superb get Top Gear awards

Skoda has received two awards for its Yeti compact 4x4 and Superb family saloon.

Top Gear magazine named the Yeti as its Family Car of the Year, while the Superb was voted Luxury Car of the Year in the awards selected by Top Gear's TV, online and magazine teams.

“The Yeti has been an instant hit with the Top Gear magazine office," said Conor McNicholas.

“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."

“It’s in the ride, the refinement, the quality of the interior, the understated drama of the exterior – the Superb is all that, and in estate form it makes even more sense," said the editor.

“For the well-healed or those of us that wish we were, the Superb Estate is a class act that really delivers. Don’t let the great price fool you!"

The Superb Estate goes on sale in the UK in February 2010, while the Yeti was launched in the UK in September 2009 from £13,775.
