My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

ŠKODA’s flagship Superb has added to an already impressive 2016 awards having been crowned Most Popular Large Family Car thanks to generating the most page views in its vehicle class on Honestjohn.co.uk. The versatile hatchback, which is available from £19,060, surpassed last year’s Honestjohn.co.uk Car of the Year for interest from the site’s users for 12 months since April 2015.
Honestjohn.co.uk Editor, Dan Harrison, said “We can think of no car that can match the new Superb when it comes to offering comfort, quality and interior space. Yet it remains true to ŠKODA's core values – it's practical, cheap to run and most of all good value for money. We're big fans of the Superb and so are our users. It's pretty much the perfect large family car”
It’s not just the Superb that is proving popular, as the Octavia – Honestjohn.co.uk’s Most Popular Large Family Car in 2014 – remained in the top 5 shortlist for that class this year.
And it didn’t stop there, with the ŠKODA Yeti generating plenty of page views in the site’s Crossover class ensuring it earned its place in Honestjohn.co.uk’s shortlist. The City Car class and Small Hatchback class had their fair share of ŠKODA’s in their top five shortlists too, with the clever Citigo and versatile Fabia featuring respectively.
Unlike many other awards, the Honestjohn.co.uk accolades aren’t awarded by judges or a panel, but generate the final positions thanks to the interaction of the website’s users. Put simply the reviews which create the most interest among the users are the winners. This year is the sixth annual honestjohn.co.uk awards.
