Sydney, Australia (PressExposure) December 14, 2009 -- Å koda is delighted to receive not one but two BBC Top Gear Magazine Awards - for the class-leading Superb and its Yeti.
Top Gear UK, one of the industry's most recognised and respected publications, named the Superb 'Luxury Car of the Year' while the Yeti was voted 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 Yeti 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."
McNicholas also had high praise for the Superb, which fended off far more expensive opposition to scoop the title of 'Luxury Car of the Year':
"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 wagon form it makes even more sense." He concluded: "For the well- healed or those of us that wish we were the Superb Wagon is a class act that really delivers. Don't let the great price fool you!"
