Skoda Yeti handed best used car crown

Skoda's Yeti has driven off with a pair of top accolades from this year's Auto Express Used Car of the Year Awards ceremony.

The judging panel named the Yeti as the best used car of 2015 as well as the year's top crossover vehicle.

Steve Fowler, editor-in-chief at Auto Express, said while the Yeti has already proved itself as a new car by winning a host of other awards, it is now proving its worth among motorists seeking a reliable second-hand vehicle.

The Yeti isn't the only Skoda model to pick up an award, with the Citigo named as winner in the city car category.

Other awards have been handed to the third generation Honda CR-V and to Jaguar's XF and XJ.

The CR-V has taken the best used compact SUV award while the Jaguar XF has warded off competition from the BMW 5 Series to take the best used executive car title.

The Jaguar XJ, meanwhile, has been named best used luxury car ahead of the Bentley Continental Flying Spur.
