Superb tops car owners' favourites

Owners of the Skoda Superb are the most satisfied, says a survey

The aptly-named Skoda Superb is the car that owners are most satisfied with, according to a survey.

And another Skoda model - the Yeti - was second in the list compiled from owners' views by What Car? and information services company JD Power and Associates.

Third in the list was the Jaguar XF, with equal fourth place being occupied by the Citroen DS3 and the Lexus RX .

The 116th and bottom-placed car was the Chevrolet Spark, with the Alfa Romeo Mito in 115th place and the Fiat Grande Punto/Evo 114th.

The top models' table was based on responses from more than 16,000 UK car-owners who were also asked to name the car company they were most satisfied with.

Topping the company list was Jaguar, followed in second place by Lexus, with Honda third, Skoda fourth and Mercedes-Benz fifth.

Bottom of the 27-company list was Chevrolet, with Alfa Romeo 26th and Mitsubishi 25th.

The Volkswagen Fox was considered the best city car, Citroen DS3 the best supermini, Toyota Prius the best small family car and the Skoda Superb the best family car/compact executive.

The Jaguar XF was the best executive car, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class the best MPV, the Skoda Yeti the best compact SUV and the Lexus RX the best large SUV.

Commenting on the company list, What Car? editor-in-chief Chas Hallett said: "This is another great achievement for everyone at Jaguar. This study shows that customers are really satisfied with their Jaguars."
